Hi ,

My name is Lynn, and I am a member of the New Member Support Team. I just wanted to take the time to say welcome to After Silence. I know how scary sharing can be! Take your time and it will come when you are ready.

I hope that you find comfort and support here. I am glad that you have joined with us and look forward to getting to know you. If you need anything or have questions about the boards or how something works, please send me a personal message. I will gladly help in any way possible...also if you need someone to listen, let me know.

Take care,

You are incredibly brave for reaching out for support! I waited 10 years after my childhood to even admit what happened to me. It's really hard to talk about abuse, but it's so worth it. Once you get help, you learn how to protect yourself. I still have ups and downs, but it's so much better than keeping it all bottled up. Whenever you are ready, we are all here for you. In the meantime, keep reading stories. You'll see that you are not alone in your struggle.

Hi BrokenGirl!! I'm glad you found us though, I am sad you needed to. Read away. We aren't going anywhere, and when you are ready, say whatever you feel comfortable with, it doesn't matter how much or how little, we are all here for each other.

Just know that nothing that happened to you was your fault. No one will ever judge you here or blame you for anything. We KNOW how you feel and in that, this place can be so comforting and a safe place to let out our feelings.

HUGS!

I understand your fear. I have only told one person all the details of my story and that was the detective that I spoke with a few weeks back. That being after 21 years of keeping silent. I'm scared of sharing my story, but not as much with fellow survivors or victims, but with family, friends, especially my dad. I guess I'm going to have to muster up the courage to post my story soon.
