Hi everyone!


Recommended Posts

Hello!! I'm new here after debating on which forum to join after posting about my experience in a Reddit forum designed for that, but then I got nasty little dm's. So I thought a private forum would be better to join in order to avoid all of that because I'm not trying to deal with that stuff, lol. I hope everyone is doing well here and I'm sorry about the reasons to why you're here. I don't know how many details I can add about myself specifically, so for now I'm just looking to heal from my wounds that happened when I was younger, because I'm really tired of this. 

Anyways, I hope you guys are having a good day!

Hi Akela,

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for all you've gone thru and the struggles you retain. What happened to you was not deserved, but you have found a safe and supportive community. Unlike Reddit, which is pretty open for any feedback, you will find understanding and kindness here. We have a staff that looks out for our members and concerns can always be brought to us, if needed. We have relatively few and minor issues, because of this. 

You are right, it is unfortunate that any of us are here, yet it's great not to have to go thru this alone. 

You can give further details, once you are comfortable and within our private forums. We just request no personal identifiable information be shared, as this too, helps keep this community and our members (which includes you) safe.

I am glad you have found us. Wishing you the best as you navigate this path of healing. 

Mary

Welcome @Akela to After Silence.  I’m sorry for what brought you here but I’m happy you are here reaching out for support.  Good job taking this step in your healing process.  You are not alone and what happened to you wasn’t your fault.  We definitely have better moderation here than on Reddit.  I use Reddit on occasion and it seems to have a lot of trolls.  We really don't get trolls here all that often.  Take your time exploring here and post when you are ready.  If you have any questions feel free to message me. 

 

@Overcomer2022 Welcome to you as well!  I'm glad you decided to join us.

Hello Akela! Welcome to AS. I'm glad you found your way here. I'm sorry you had a bad time with a support group on Reddit. That sounds awful. You will have a much better experience here, I believe/hope! You'll meet lots of very friendly and supportive people. You're not alone. ❤️ I'm sorry for what you've been through that brought you here, though. It was undeserved and not your fault. I wish you the best on your healing journey.

Hello and welcome here, I am Wanna :flowers:

Oh I am sorry, I know Reddit can have some disturbing trolls :( When we decide to reach out for help, we need a guarantee of respect and support. After Silence is a safe place. You can be completely anemones and you decide how much you want to share. This site carries specific rules to protect our members, assuring a nice experience. 

I believe every survivor needs a sense of a community, so I am very glad you joined here! Remember that healing takes time. We are here for you! :notalone:

Make sure to throw me or any staff a message, if we can be helpful in any way. 

Stay safe
