Hey everyone! I am new on here and to be honest I am a bit terrified because I haven't shared my story with a lot of people. I hope by joining AS that I can connect with other survivors and maybe it will help with my healing process.

Hi Angel,

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry you have endured something and it has led you here, but do know you have found a wonderful community filled with supportive and understanding members. You are not alone.

Many of us have been a little nervous joining, especially if what we've been thru hasn't been really shared much. New experiences can be uneasy, at first. I encourage you to look around tho, and see what a safe and healthy place this is. You can share what you want at a pace that is good for you, no rush. I am sure you will find comfort here in no time.

It is a brave and forward step to reach out to others. I wish you many more steps forward as you move down this path that we call healing.
