I just joined a few days ago but was clueless as to what to put here. Been feeling the need to talk about this for a little while now but was too afraid to. Finally decided to start searching online and came across this site. It’s exactly what I was looking for. A way to connect with people who would understand me and not judge me or make me feel worse than I already do.

Hi Starbuck.

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for all you've been thru. I hope you know that it was unfair and undeserved. Nobody has the right to hurt another like this. You have found a supportive community with many understanding members. You are not alone.

It takes courage to reach out and I am glad you did. Feel free to look around the site and interact when and where you feel the most comfortable to. It's a big step to even get a hello out, so good job in doing so. I wish you the best as you continue down this path we call healing.
