Hello Everyone

Recommended Posts


I am a 31 year-old woman residing in the USA. I stumbled upon this forum via Google in search of an online community to discuss and share our stories as survivors. As an introvert, I cant bear the thought of doing an in-person support group as I am better off being an ambiguous fly on the wall. I look forward to corresponding with all of you in the forums to further aid in our healing journey. Cheers everyone!

Welcome to AS, @CupcakesAreGreat! Thank you for introducing yourself. Though I am sorry for what you've experienced, I am glad you found your way here. Hehe, I'm the same...no way could I do an in-person support group! The internet is a great place for us introverts. 😄 You'll find a lot of kind and supportive people here that can relate to you and offer lots of support. You are not alone. ❤️ :aswelcomesu:

Welcome to After Silence, @CupcakesAreGreat - I hear you loud and clear on the online platform being ideal vs. an in-person group.  Though I wish there were more options for an in-person gathering once per week where I live, I must admit I do much better when there's anonymity and zero pressure. :) 

Take your time looking around and jump in whenever you are comfortable. :)

Best wishes,
