Hello to all,

I have been trying to find a sexual assault survivor group in person but, Covid is making this healing process a bit more difficult. I was thrilled to find this site and be a part of the community. I recently saw saw of my good friends for the first while since the I didn’t and couldn’t help but feel so distant now. I am looking forward to being a part of this community. 
thank you.

Hi @SmilingThroughIt and welcome to After Silence!

Totally understand COVID making things difficult - many can relate to having to form connections virtually because the conditions of the pandemic have persisted.  I hope that being here helps you to connect with others who can relate to your experiences. ❤️

Again - welcome.  We support you!
