I’m new, feeling super lonely so here I am.


Recommended Posts

Hiya, I’m from the UK.

I’ve very recently gone to the police about my rape (which happened a few months before) but since I’m at uni I feel so lonely. The friends I thought I was close to before don’t seem to like me as much and I’m away from my family. I feel so lonely and it hurts, it’s so painful. I just wish I had a friend or a lover to talk to about my feelings. Most of my friends don’t even know I’m going to the police, before since I was closer to them, I wouldn’t mind telling them but now I feel like I can’t.

Hi BillieMay,

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for what happened to you a few months ago. It was unfair and undeserved. I am also sorry you are struggling without support right now. I know it makes things more difficult to process alone. You will find a community filled with understanding people here who do understand and will support and validate you. You are not alone. 

Feel free to look around our site and interact where you feel comfortable. It does take courage to reach out, so I am happy you decided to do so. It's not an easy path, but we are here for you. I wish you well as you find your way forward on this healing journey.

Mary
