Hi, I’m Ellie!


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I’m Elle. I’m 24 and I have been a victim of rape. I won’t go into full detail of what happened but let’s just say it’s left me feeling really guilty and scared. I joined as I don’t have any support outside in the real world, so I hope by being here I can help others and get support for myself.

my interests are, football, art, drawing, I enjoy spending time with my dog called teddy. I find that drawing helps me relax through a panic attack.

Welcome to AS Elliee what happened to you is unfair, but I am glad that you have found AS.  There are many people who will be able to relate to your experiences, in both what has happened and your feelings as a result of it.   Look around, and continue to interact when and where you feel comfortable here.

Hi Elle.

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am sorry you have reason to be here, but you have found a very supportive site. Our members are understanding and kind. You are not alone.

Those guilty and scared feelings...unfortunately, they are very common. We often feel ashamed, when it should be the jerk who hurt us. We hope, with a little time, you can release that shame, as it is so undeserved. The fear...that takes time, too. I'm sorry you were hurt.

Take your time and look around. There is no pace but the one you make for yourself. I wish you many healing steps on your journey forward.
