This is my first post. Seeking community with other survivors. I have spent most of my life not talking about this, having no idea how to even start. Thanks for having me, honored to be among you all.

Hi @zerostars

Hi zerostars.

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for the trauma you've endured to lead you here...but here is a very supportive site. You will find that our members are understanding and kind. You are not alone. 

I did the same...spent decades holding all I endured in. There is a relief to having others who get it. You can share or interact with others in a way that is comfortable for you. No pressure, no judgement, just encouragement and validation when you do. It's made a real difference for me, and I think it might do the same for you. So, feel free to look around and do it at a pace you feel comfortable with. 

Wishing you the best on this journey we call healing.

Hi @zerostars. I am glad you've decided to try to take some steps towards speaking uo about what you went through. I know how scary that can be, and I want you to know that you are not alone. I am very sorry for what you went through and for what brings you here, but I am glad that you are here nonetheless.
