hey everyone, just thought id post in here cuz im new here and just trying to get used to all of this.

i've only ever used a site like this once about 2 years ago but i was a bit too scared to use it properly because i sort of feel like an attention seeker who doesnt really need help as there are so many other people who've been through worse than me.

okay ill shutup now, thanks

Hi emmalee,

You're certainly not an attention seeker at all, we all deserve support and here at AS, we recognise that all members have been hurt, and never prioritise one members hurt over another, we have all been hurt, and we all deserve support in our healing process, we don't say, this member has been hurt more then another member, because we just don't view it in this way, we just recognise that we have all been hurt and we all deserve to heal from what we have experienced, you deserve that just as much as anyone in this online community :tealribbon:

I hope you find the healing and support that you seek here in AfterSilence, please know we are a very supportive, understanding validating and friendly bunch of survivors who do understand what you're feeling, and are here to support you during your healing, you're never alone here at AfterSilence :hug:

Hi and welcome!

I second what John said. Granted I've only been on since this weekend but I've already found people to be amazingly supportive. You didn't deserve whatever happened to bring you here, but you do deserve to heal. Trying to heal isn't simply "seeking attention". This is a great place to find support, share when you need to and get distracted when you just want to try to think of something else.

If you ever need to chat feel free to message me.

:hug: only if it's ok.

thanks guys.

it's nice to know that im welcome here, as many of the few people ive told about my problems have either ignored what i said, or acted like i had just made it all up for attention.

it's like people dont want to help or anything, and if you try to talk to them they run away, people dont care about the problems, they just wanna hear the good stuff. i just want someone to actually care that im upset and hurting

thanks again
