Terrified To Post Anything


Elpis

Recommended Posts

Greetings, my name is Audrey. I am hoping that I can find help here and that I can support others at the same time, but it is also very frightening. I have been tread upon and invalidated many time when I have tried to reach out to people before.

Four years ago a guy from my high school tried to rape me in a stairwell. He landed at the bottom of the stairs after a few minutes, but I can not remember what happened.

Six months ago I was diagnosed with PTSD, and four months ago I finally started telling people what happened.

I do not know if I am going about this the right way, but I hope I am. So here I am saying hello.

Welcome to After Silence :flowers:

I can relate to feeling nervous and scared about opening up. I was also invalidated many times before I finally opened up again on this board. Just know that we are here to listen as you are ready to share. This is a safe space and we do not allow for judgment of others.

Take care,

Nicole :throb:

Hi Audrey,

I know how you feel. It is difficult to open up. You'll know when the time is right. The good thing about this forum is that it gives you a cahnce to say what you want without judgement

I want to add to everyone else and say welcome to AS too.

Regards,

Kathrina :flowers:

I have been where you are and the fears are rough I have had to learn too trust and AM still working on it I AM one that took 3 a

Years. Too trust person that could help me and it was tint step at a time and she whanted me to trust a group and I melted down I still could not and this chat room was My first trust so it is not easy and your your own judge at what you are comfortable with I have found that with My freind who it took me along time to trust I was so afraid of everyone and things that I was. Really living and I would rather live than let the fears smother me I still have a lot of fears but I am not totaly dying a slow painful death inside I not saying it is perfect or anything like that but better it is a daily process your not alone

You won't be invalidated here - I have found this site to be a constant source of support and validation and I'm sure you will as well.

You are doing it the right way - there is no wrong way! I hope you find everything you need here.

Take good care
