Hi All!


Recommended Posts

I'm new to AS. I'm 24 in grad school and was raped by someone else in my program about a month ago.

Just posted my story in one of the other forums. It was hard, but I needed to tell someone. I feel like my life has been falling to pieces ever since it happened. It's eating me up inside and I feel like I just want to give up.

I'm afraid of telling my IRL friends and family what happened to me b/c I'm afraid of what they'll think or say.

Sorry for venting.

So...Hi again

... and bye.

heyyy, :flowers:

i'm so sorry you had to go through that and that it even happened.

i felt the very same way that you did, i first posted my story online and this was the first time i ever "told" anyone what had happened. i was also afraid of what my family and friends would think, and i'm sorry that this is preventing you from speaking. but you must take your time and tell people only when you feel ready.

you will find alot of support and love here,

:hug: :hug: :hug:
