Scared To Be Doing This...

Hi, This is the first time I have done anything like this and I am very scared. I have been in therapy for a long while, but I am now in a place where I need to be able to relate and hear from other people who have been through similar things. My abuse has always been a big secret for me so this is terrifying. I am hoping, actually I don't know what I am hoping...just to feel connected I guess.

Hi emt, and welcome to AS!

I am part of the Newbie Support Team here to welcome you and help you out around the boards if you need it.

I know how it feels to keep secrets, and feel ashamed. I hope you can find some solace and healing, and that finding others like you will ease your fear.

If there is anything you need, please let me know via a PM. I'll send you an introductory email in a few minutes.

Welcome to AS. I'm new - you left replies on my two posts, for which I am grateful. :) I hope that we can both find whatever it is that we're after here - even if we don't know what exactly that is.

Welcome to AS. I think that you'll find this to be a very supportive place to visit. I have really found it healing to hear other people's stories and read that their feelings are often very similar to mine. No one understands survivors like other survivors. And as I post replies to their messages of self doubt or guilt, I find that I heal from my own guilt because I realize that it wasn't anyone's fault but the people who chose to hurt me. I hope you will find AS to be a safe place to come and talk about this very tough stuff. I'm glad you're here.
