Saying Hello

Recommended Posts

Hi I'm Reyzl. I've been reading for a couple of days not sure whether to post. This seems like a caring, supportive place. I was abused by my father growing up and am now in therapy for the second time, dealing with flashbacks, etc ~ having some difficult times lately with what's coming up.

I'm a mature student in my 30's and I live with my crazy but adorable cat :kitty:~ oh, I've just realised it's his birthday today :clap::party:

Maybe I'll post my story soon ~ just not sure where to start.

Glad to find you all,

Reyzl :)

I'm pretty new here too and am only just finding my feet, but so far everyones been really loving, kind and gentle (something I think everyone here needs) and I'm sure you'll find everyone to be that way too. I keep debating posting my story but figure when I'm ready, I'll feel comfortable with the idea...basically I'm trying to say don't push yourself!

Hi! Thank you so much for the lovely welcome everyone. I was a bit apprehensive about posting but you've all made it feel so much less scary to be new!

My cat appreciates the birthday wishes, lol. He's celebrated his birthday by sleeping all day and ignoring me :hammer:

Thanks again :flowers:

Hi and happy birthday to the cat!! I'm due to move into my first house soon and cant wait to get a kitten! Cats give you respect and love and don't judge... :up:

Thanks :lol:! Cat's are great, but let me warn you ~ kittens are little destroying machines!! I could NOT go through my cat's kittenhood again! Hope you end up with a good one :wink: Trust your gut ~ mine kicked me to death as soon as I picked him up for the first time. Should have seen it as a sign of things to come, lol ~ not that I'd be without him now of course!

Welcome to After Silence, Reyzl :flowers:

Well, your cat and I share the same birthday, I am banking on me being older though :wink:

I am sorry for what you have been through, and to hear you are struggling. I hope that our supportive, compassionate community can offer you much on your healing journey.

Nicole :throb:
