So hi I'm K. I've been through a lot, not really processed it. I honestly have had things done to me I'm not ready to talk about and probably aren't appropriate. I was in a long term domestic violence relationship until about 2 years ago and I'm having flashbacks I don't understand. I guess I just came to read and maybe learn how other people are healing. I've been in therapy for a lot of my life to be honest and I feel like I should know what to do, but I've never really delt with my trauma and it's just accumulated over the years. 

I honestly feel blessed to be alive and functional at this point. I'm 31, almost 32 and putting my life back together... Again.

Hi K. Welcome to AS. I'm sorry for the trauma you've experienced, but I'm glad you found the site and decided to join. This is a kind and caring community and we are all here to help each other heal. Sometimes talking with other survivors and hearing about their experiences can help you feel less alone. You will never be pressured to talk about anything you don't feel comfortable sharing. We are all on our own timeline. You are welcome to post on the forums whenever you feel comfortable, but just reading posts is also a great option. I think many of us feel like we have no idea what we are doing at times. There is no manual for dealing with trauma. It's a journey filed with highs and lows, but it is possible to heal. I wish you all the best.

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

I am glad you're alive too. You don't have to share anything you don't feel comfortable to, however, you can talk about basically anything here. This is a safe place for all survivors to connect. Like you mentioned, you can read about other's experiences, and you can also discuss coping methods, therapy, day to day life and much more. Nothing is too small or too big. 

Take your time to get to know the place. You can ask me or any staff member for assistance, come with questions, or contact us for some moral support. I am just one PM away. :notalone:

Take care 

W ☀️
