Hi wandering,

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for all you've been thru and the struggles you face. What you went thru was so undeserved. You have found a very supportive community tho, our members are understanding and kind. I am glad you've decided to reach out. I know how difficult trying something new is. 

Feel free to look around. I personally think it's the best way to get comfortable with a new place and you will only have to interact when you are ready. There is no pressure at all.

I wish you nothing but the best as you begin this journey you call healing. You are not alone.

Welcome, @wanderingandlost97 to After Silence.  I'm so sorry that you have reason to be here - but I am hoping that being among those who understand will make you feel much less alone and as though healing is possible - because it truly IS possible. :)

We were all new once!  I think you'll get the hang of it fairly quickly.  We have many members who are willing to help, so please do not hesitate to reach out wherever you are comfortable.

Wishing you all the best!

Hi @wanderingandlost97. Welcome to After Silence.  I'm new myself and have been struggling to make a second post since saying 'hello' (you have inspired me, thank you :)). Although, I suspect everyone here will appreciate, in their own way, what it is to feel alone, I hope (I really believe) that a place like this can help you feel among friends; (perhaps I am remembering wrong but I have a feeling someone very wise once said 'you're only so lost, when among friends'). Even if you struggle to say anything just reading what others have written can really make a difference (again, thank you for the inspiration).  I'm not much for axioms but I do think it is always worth remember that 'A journey of a thousand miles, starts with a single step'.

Lots of love and respect.
