I'm Jenn.

I thought I'd been dealing with my past well. Then I read something on another site (a support site for something entirely different) that made me realize I hadn't been so much dealing with it as just pushing it all down and back.

Anyhow, I did some googling and found this site. I'll probably just do some reading around at first. I feel I'm probably the odd ball in some of what I did when I was younger to justify what was happening to me.

Anyhow, I'll be around.

Thanks to those of you who are here.

Hi Jenn

Welcome to AS, I hope you begin to feel at home here soon :flowers:

I'm sure you'll find everyone to be very supportive.

And I'm sure that the ways you used to cope are completely understandable due to the circumstances you found yourself in, I'm sure there will be people here who can relate.

Thanks for the welcomes. I just typed a bit of my story in another forum. I didn't think I'd do it so fast but I did and I'm glad I did.

Hi Jenn,

I'm glad you've joined After Silence. I hope you find our community to be helpful and supportive. I'm sorry for what you've endured, and want you to know that many of us spent a lot of time trying to push things away. I think it's wonderful that you're ready to work on your healing. :)

Try not to worry too much about being an "oddball" in how you reacted to your trauma. I have a strong feeling you will come to realize other members here at AS have reacted in similar ways. But the real 'oddball' is the person or persons who hurt you. :hug:

If you have any questions, please feel free to message me. Take care, and I'll see you around the site. :)
