I'm A Newbie Too


Recommended Posts

hello there,

I just joined this Community because I need a safe place to write about and discuss things I'm still trying to cope with... I'm German, so English is not my first langauge (and for that, please excuse if I make stupid mistakes or write things which may be misunderstood :blush: ) and I used to write in German communites quite frequently until I found out that so-called friends and my ex-boyfriend were reading and answering my posts, too, without telling me that they knew it was me... So, now I'm having a go on another forum...

I was raped about 3 years ago but experienced other abuse in my past relationships as well and I'm still struggling a lot. Been in therapy but haven't managed to go through all things yet and I didn't get any more sessions granted so I'm all by myself at the moment...

well, that's a bit about me...

HI :hi:

Welcome to Aftersilence.

I'm sorry for what you experienced at the other forums. It wasn't right for them to do that. I hope that this can be your safe place where you can be heard and nobody invades your privacy.

PS I couldn't even tell that English was your second language!!

Thank you so much for your warm welcome! :)

I'm still surprised how big this forum is and how many topics it has :blink: it's gonna take me a wee while to read the lot *lol*

And about my English: thanks, sometimes I just think it doesn't make sense ^^ Well I know sometimes it sounds funny, especially when I don't really think how I wanna say things. Mainly when I'm on my meds or really jazzed :unsure:

You're welcome.

I hope you're finding your way around the boards ok.

And your English makes sense to me.
