Hi there,

Just wanted to introduce myself. I am Jen (as you can see from my username... I should have come up with something a bit more inventive!). I am 37 and just starting the process of dealing with a rape from 20 years ago. I did a fairly good job of pushing the memory and it's effects on me to the back of my mind for many years but now want to try to heal. I look forward to getting to know many of you better as we all work on our journeys.

Hi -


I am dealing with a 25 yr old rape too.

There is lots to learn here.

I hope you find the support you need.

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 can identify with your struggle. Our stories are quite similar in that I put what happened behind me for many years and suddenly found it staring me in the face in my mid-thirties. It has taken awhile, but much of what I dealt with about my childhood abuse and what happened in my twenties has led me to a deeper understanding of myself. I still have a ways to go in dealing with somethings, but I think that is just part of being human. Take heart, you can get through this.

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,

Your Sister in Survival,


:yahoo:Yahoo, :aswelcomesu: !

:hug: We love :wub: you and are glad you've found AfterSilence!
