Just wanted to say hi to everyone. I found you today after a particularly bad week.

Hope everyone is ok.



(don't want to go into details on public forums - sorry)

Thanks for the nice welcome. I am really hoping to get something positive from here too. I'm a bit scared about posting anything really because I don't want to upset anyone.

Hi I am glad that you have found this site. It is such a wonderful place for support! Please don't hesitate to ask if you need anything at all. Please feel free to share as much as you are comfortable with. I can understand not wanting to upset anyone but everyone is really good about taking care of themselves so if they don't feel they can handle reading something they won't read it or may choose to come back to it later. Please take advantage of all the wonderful support you can get here. I look forward to seeing you around the boards....

Hi Gerri, good to see you here. Share as much or as little as you feel able. I'm a bit scared about sharing things too just now ~ just shared my story but I'm taking comfort in the knowledge that I can go back and delete it all if I want to :lol:!

I've posted in forums where no one ever really shared explicit details about their abuse and it seemed like it wouldn't be okay. But from what I've seen so far, this seems like somewhere you can quite freely share details that might be triggering as long as you label it as triggering. So I don't think your posts will upset anyone. Just do what feels okay to you.

I hope you find the support you need here.

Take care,

Reyzl :flowers:

Thanks everyone. I am so glad I found this place (google is the best!) I finally feel that I am not alone. I can't really express how good that feels after all this time.

Hi Gerri!

Glad you found AS because it's such a serene place and very bonding. You'll feel straight at home and see that it's easy to share your story/stories.
