Welcome to After Silence, @Polkadots and @Stephanief!!!!  

You'll both hear soon from a member of the Newbie Support Team.  Until then, I'm happy to be the first one to say hello! 😉 

I am very sorry you feel alone and misunderstood, @Polkadots - I can relate to that, as well.  It's not an easy feeling to shake, especially when it comes to trauma.  I do hope that being here will bring you peace, comfort and healing - you definitely are not alone, here.  Many are in the same boat.  

Please feel free to browse and look around - I'm just a holler away if you need anything. :)

Best wishes,

- Capulet

Hi!  I am also new and suffer from PTSD.  Having pets is wonderful therapy.  My silly dog has brought so much joy into my life.  So happy that you joined and you are definitely not alone. I understand how you feel and wish you all the best.  ❤️

Welcome to AS, @Polkadots! I'm glad you found your way here. :) I like your username, too. It's very cute! All that said, I'm really sorry though for your trauma. For what you've been through...it was undeserved and absolutely not your fault. I'm so sorry. But again, I'm glad you're here. You'll find a lot of very friendly and supportive people in this community. You're not alone!! Aww, a dog and a cat! How precious! Gotta love our furbabies. :) Take your time exploring the site. I wish you well on your healing journey!

Hi Polkadots.

Welcome to the community. I am very sorry for all you've endured and the struggles you face. You are not alone. This site is filled with supportive and understanding members. I am glad you reached out to us. 

Feel free to look around and interact where you are the most comfortable. It takes courage to reach out and I'm proud of you for doing so. 

My cat is currently trying to help me type, you might know of how they do? :) I told her she has to learn to spell first tho, so maybe next time she will....but for now I will relay both of our wishes to you for moving forward on this path we call healing.
