Hello


Recommended Posts

Hi I am a new member here. Not too sure what to expect but I don't talk to anyone about what's happened to me and the feelings it has left me with, sometimes overwhelming. I feel I need somewhere to "get things out" so It's not all swirling round in my head. I feel so different from people around me, it's quite isolating. And I have no desire to burden my lovely (very small) family with any more details from my story and the way it has affected me.

Hello and welcome to our community! I am Wanna :flowers:

Opening up about our trauma is a challenging process, which takes courage and a sense of safety to enforce. These forums are a safe place for all survivors to connect with fellow survivors, would it be to chat, vent, exchange advice and much more. You decide how much you're sharing, of course. We discuss basically anything here, trauma related and just plain life too. What's on our minds, what excites us and what concerns us. 

Take your own time here, no expectations. You can always reach out to me or any staff member of choice for assistance or some extra company. I'm just one PM away. :youcanheal:

Anyhow, take care and hope to see you around
