Hi Phoenix,

I'm glad you've joined After Silence. I'm also shy, so I'm glad you have allowed us to welcome you to the site. :) I hope you find our community to be supportive and helpful, as I have. Take your time, and have a look around. If you have any questions, feel free to message me. I'll see you around the site. :hug::)

hi and thanks for the welcomes. i'm used to forums but this one is confusing me a little. can supporters reply to posts or do they have to stay in there own section? i'm only asking because i have someone who will be joining to support me and we were wondering if he could reply to the posts i make.

^Good question, phoenix. I just sent you a PM that explains the access for secondary survivors. Depending on where you post, they may or may not be able to read and respond to your posts.

Secondary Survivors do not have access to the Share Your Story, Gender-Specific, Aftermath, and Venting forums. If you are wanting to post specifically so a Secondary can read and respond to your post, a good place to post would be in the Secondary Survivors forum located here.

I hope that helped, but if not, let me know. :)

thank you all for the warm welcomes. i'm beginning to figure this site out pretty well. some of the sections i plan on staying away from for now, like the females section, i just have a feeling it would be way too triggering for me right now. lots of new fbs and memories coming up. so i'm keeping it to the simple sections for now. but anyways thanks for welcoming me guess i'll shut up now.

hi sorry my brian doesn't work and i'm not good at names or i'd be thanking everyone of you one by one, so a general thank you is all i'm capable of doing right now. so thank you everyone for welcoming me here. it's nice to be somewhere so friendly.

Phoenix I love your choice of screen name. I assume you know the legonds. A survivor is a lot like a phoenix. we have an oppertunity to reinvent ourselves after the fire we have been through. Please take gentle care of yourself and take your time with what ever you are going through. When you are ready we will be here. Safe (((hugs)))

hi everyone

i use phoenixsoul all the time and it brings back such bad memories i am in the process of trying to get my name changed but so far no luck. i guess if i have to stay with phoenix soul i will just remember the beautiful bird that rises from the ashes. i guess thats one way to look at it. anyways thank you for the welcomes they are very much needed right now.
