Hi. I am new here and figured I would introduce myself. I have lived through a lot of trauma starting when I was a toddler. I joined to connect with people. I have a hard time connecting with people or even talking to people. Hopefully this will help. Look forward to interacting with everyone.

Welcome, @_Nikki_!!

I'm sorry to hear that trauma has led you here, but am hopeful that the connections you will make here will greatly contribute to your healing success. ❤️ To be able to correspond with others who understand the impact of sexual trauma has been SO helpful for me.

Take your time looking around!  I look forward to getting to know you.

Best wishes,
Capulet

Thanks. I am a really open person and find talking about my experiences to be super helpful. Unfortunately, I live in an rural area with little to no resources. I have some friends but anytime I talk to them about things I feel like I traumatize them with just my stories.

Hi Nikki,

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for all the trauma you have endured, but you found a very supportive site. Our members are truly understanding and kind.  What happened to you was unfair and undeserved. I hope you know this. Many times survivors are all stuck with this unjust self-blame. There is never an acceptable reason for anyone to do this to another. Never.

I understand about how difficult it is to speak to others. They don't fully understand. I am glad you do have a group around you, even if talking with them is not something you feel comfortable doing. Hopefully, with a little time, you will feel comfortable with us. The best way to start is to look about the site and see how much of what you are dealing with is relatable with others. Jump in or start your own conversations, when you are ready. There is no rush, nor judgement. You are accepted here, without reservation.

I am glad you have found us and wish you the best as you try to navigate this path we call healing.

Mary

Hello @_Nikki_! Welcome to AS! I'm glad you found your way here. I'm sorry to hear what you've been through, though, even starting from when you were a toddler. You did not deserve any of it. You'll find a lot of very kind and supportive people here. This is a huge step you're taking in the healing process and in practicing opening up and talking to people more. I wish you well. ❤️
