Just found this site and joined.  It's a confusing time and not really sure what I'm looking for here.  This is the first site I've joined like this.  I feel like sometimes the toughest part is carrying around a secret.

Hi JustRachel,

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am so sorry for the trauma you have experienced and the struggles you must be facing. You will find so much support here, as this community is filled with understanding and kind members. You are not alone.

You are here for the same reason most of us are. It is a burden keeping everything in and feeling like nobody really knows or could comprehend what you did and what you are going thru. This is a safe place. You will not be judged or pressured. You can share or interact to what suits you. Whatever you are comfortable with.

I think you will see this all, as you look around a bit. Take your time and see.

Wishing you the best as you start taking steps forward on this journey we call healing.

Mary

Thanks for that.  Sometimes just sharing something can be like taking a big breath of air.

Welcome! It can be very hard to experience something traumatic and feel as if you have no one to talk to. This is a great place to talk to like minded people and please know you are not alone!

Yes, the secret. It makes me angry sometimes, esp looking at how my violators have moved on with their lives like nothing happened. I feel for you. It’s not a secret here. That’s why I love the name of this forum, After Silence. We’re in this together.
