Hi, everyone 👋

Recommended Posts

Hello @Tapestry! Welcome to AS! Your username is awesome. Do you have an inspiration for it? :aswelcomesu:

I'm so sorry that you've been through trauma. Sorry for what you've been through, but I'm glad that you found your way here. We're a really supportive bunch. I'm still pretty new here, too, and I've found this place to be really helpful and warm. It's great to not be alone on this long healing journey. Happy to have you along for the trip. : ) Best wishes!

Hi all, 

I'm new here but not new to the long healing journey we all are on. I don't want to mention details in a public forum, but thought I would say hi. Looking forward to getting to know you. 


Hello T, and welcome! I am Wanna :flowers:

Wherever you currently are in your healing journey, we are happy to have you. Some survivors come here early on, some a bit later and other's when they consider themselves on the other side of the tunnel, and mainly want to offer support. 

You share what you'd like, once you feel ready. We will hear you out. You can browse this site a bit, check out the forum. Take your time, we are here for you. 

After Silence is a safe community where our members form a wonderful support system, offering support, advice, a chat and venting. All survivors are invited, and we believe you. 

Looking forward getting to know you as well!

Take good care now

- Wanna ☀️
