Hello Everyone, 

I am a survivor of a sexual assault/ Molestation, not sure of what to call it, that I have been living with for the past 20 some years. I've come to this website to find others who are also survivors and start my road to recovery from the assault. I am an open book about it and willing to tell my story if it helps others who are going through the same thing.

Hi there, Campingalone,

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for what you've gone thru and the struggles you face. It is unfair for anyone to abuse another and it was quite undeserved. You have found a supportive site with many understanding members.

Take your time and look around. Interact where you feel the most comfortable. I wish you well on this path we call healing.

Mary

Welcome to AS, Campingalone! I'm glad you found your way here. I'm so sorry though for what you've been through. It's completely unfair and not right...I just want to let you know that what you experienced was not your fault and totally undeserved. You will find others here that can relate to you...and a lot of very supportive and friendly people. You're not alone. Sending you support and comfort. ❤️

@Campingalone484 so sorry that you have a reason to be here, but I'm glad you found your way over. I've been on AS only briefly but for the first time in my life I've found a place where I understand people, and I feel like (even if I don't talk much) people understand me. I hope your time here helps your road to recovery, and if/when you feel comfortable sharing your story, I'm sure it'll help at least one person feel a little less alone. Welcome ❤️

Hello and welcome here! I am Wanna :flowers:

That is a very beautiful thing, wanting to share your story in order to help others. You are much welcomed to do so, but no pressure at all. You participate in the way that brings you the most comfort. 

We don't always have to label it, knowing it was not consensual and traumatic says much. Sounds like you've come to the right place. It is never too late to start healing, and it will take it's own time. But we are here for every step of the way, every up and down. 

Have a look around, settle in at your own pace. If you would need anything at all, me and the other staff are here for you :aswelcomesu:

All best, 

W ☀️

I wasn’t exactly sure how to classify what happened to me as a kid either.

but if your here I’m guessing it’s not something pleasant, so try not to be too hard on yourself. Especially when your trying to heal old wounds.
