Hello I’m Neems, 

I was directed to this group by my therapist because she thought it would be good for me to read and listen to other survivors stories without the pressure of me having to be in a physical group. I was R*** in September of 2022. Now I’m finally starting to process my trauma and it’s been very difficult for me to navigate through it during these though times. Though I wish there was a quick fix for trauma I know that healing process is slow and you have to take it one day at a time. I’m proud and excited that I took another step towards healing and I hope that we can all heal together. Much love and hugs to all of you

Hi Neems and welcome.

I am very sorry what happened to you a few months ago. It was wrong and it was unfair. You have come to a very supportive site with many understanding and kind members. I am glad your T recommended you to us. You are not alone.

It is good that you understand that there is no miracle quick fix, oh how we all wish there were! It's a good realization tho. So many of us start with "it should be now" or "it will never happen". Neither of these statements are true. It does take time and it does take acceptance. It's not an easy thing. You have taken steps tho and every path starts somewhere. 

Feel free to look around the community and jump in when and where you feel comfortable. There is no pace but your own pace. We will be here for you, regardless. 

Wishing you the best on this journey we call healing.

Neems, I am sorry for what happened to you but I am happy that you found this community.  Many of us have found a lot of healing here.  Take your time and look around.  There is no pressure to share anything.  As your therapist said you can learn a lot just from reading others story.  It is helpful to know that you are not alone.

But please know that healing is possible, and you will find a lot of friendly and supportive people in this community. You are not alone. I wish you all the best on your healing journey. ❤️
