Hello everybody,

It is strange for me posting somewhere. I usually just read posts written by others, but I do feel like I should say something here as well. I was raped by a stranger in August and since then everything is like a dream. The world is just not the same place as it was before. It seems to me that everything and everybody has changed. I am trying a lot of things to help myself. I do not want let Him spoil my life even more. Visiting (and now joining) this web is really helpful. I do have finally feeling that somebody can understand me without long explaining.

I am sorry for my English – I am not native. There are some forums in my native language but they are open for anybody and it was sometimes so harmful to read insensitive posts (why do people think that the most important thing is to punish rapist – when I read this sort of posts I feel like He or any rapist is more important than their victims/surrivors are and that the fact that I can not remember his face properly - is almost a crime itself).

It was very helpful just reading your posts. It is very good feeling to be here. I finally have safe place to be anytime when I am depressed.

Thank you.

Hi Ave,

Welcome to After Silence. :flowers:

I’m so sorry to hear what happened to you. I think rape does change your outlook on life, I know it definitely changed mine. I’m glad to hear you are doing things to help yourself, and I think it’s really brave of you to come here and open up to us.

There is no pressure to tell your story, Take as much time as you wish to look around and get comfortable on the boards.

Take care :hug:
