Hi, I am new to After Silence.  Over the past 10 or so months, I have been healing from my sexual assault.  It has been really hard for me to process it maybe because I still don't really understand why it happened or why it happened to me.  Anyways, my therapist suggested that I join an online support group to connect with others who have gone through similar experience so here I am!

Hi Jane,

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for what happened to you about 10 months ago and the struggles you are facing. It is unfair and undeserved, but your questions are completely natural and normal, tho we rarely understand why...because it means understand a mind of such a vile person, which is not something we typically do. It was not your fault tho. You did nothing wrong. We know that struggle and you are not alone.

You will find much support here with our many understanding and supportive members. Feel free to look around and interact where and when you are comfortable. You will find this a safe and healing community. I wish you well as you move forward on this journey of healing.
