Hi new to AS - seems like a lot of the folk are pretty young...I'm not even well versed in this whole bloggin' thing. Just starting to realize/understand the magnitude of my childhood assault and how it has effected my life. Was looking for a place I could talk about the various consequences.

Well - only ten beer later and I finally got the courage to write!

Nice to hear from you StormyPugs...I have seen posts from you previously (ok, so I've been lurking a bit to get comfortable) and I'm glad you are my age - but not glad for your pain ;-(

I am really sorry for the things that led you here but I am glad that you found your way to AS. Take your time and look around; I am sure that you will be feeling comfortable and at home in no time. There are so many great people here who will offer you the support and encouragement you are looking for and deserve. I look forward to seeing you around the board.


Take good care of yourself, ok?

Welcome to AS! We are glad to have you here! Don't feel pressured to post. Do it in your own time, this is YOUR healing journey and it takes time. Remember you are safe here among friends.

Hey skeeter,

This website is more of a message board then a blog site, and I am sure that you'll get used it eventually, and if you need any help feel free to PM a Newbie Support Team member and we'll help you out :flowers: I am sorry for the childhood abuse that you have experienced but I am glad to know that you have come here to AfterSilence and are wanting to heal, I hope you find the support you're look for :bighug:

Hi Skeeter and welcome,

When I first found this site I thought I was the only older one here and as this was the first site I had ever been on found the whole thing daunting but have found my way around and made friends with people of all ages.

i hope you find the support you are looking for. I have.

can I ask a question - does anybody else out there find it difficult to go to the doctor?? i guess it particularly triggers me this time of year because of it being breast cancer awareness month. my mother died of cancer and i have been told on several occasions that i will need to get tested...but any kind of exam (breast, pelvic, colorectal...hell, plain 'ole physical) FREAKS me out!!
