New To All Of This

Recommended Posts

I think I originally skipped this section and went straight to share your story. Having a very hard time right now and trying to get it back together. I was raped 16 years ago and suppressed all these years. Talked to a therapist (finally and long story). It all came out. She called it flooding. It was as if it had happened yesterday! I have been having flashbacks and panic attacks. I have a 2 & 3 year old which makes life hard. My story is posted in the share your story section. Right now I am reaching out and trying to find all the support I can get and possibly forge some friendships here. I just want life to get back to normal, but have no idea what normal is anymore!!!

Hi Jen,

Welcome to Aftersilence. My name is Mandy and my job is to make you feel at home and if you ever need any help with the boards please feel free to let me know.

I'm sorry for what you have been through. And yes I do know what you mean by "as if it just happened yesterday" - it felt like that for me too. But things do get better.
