I am so nervous posting this but looking for support and I've been debating posting for days and haven't felt ready. I still don't know if I am ready! How do we ever really know? I guess I just don't want to feel alone and reading posts on here makes me feel less alone!

Hi Circlegirl,

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am so sorry you have reasons for being here. What happened to you was unfair and undeserved. You have found a very supportive site with so many understanding members. You are not alone. 

Being nervous is a natural response to doing something new. Finding the courage to just reach out is amazing and I'm glad you found that courage. It's ok to take your time. You will not be rushed to interact before you're ready. We will be here tho, when you are.

I'm glad that you found us and decided to reach out. I wish you nothing but the best as you begin this journey we call healing.
