  13. Saturday's message:  It's OKAY!

    - to make mistakes
    - to have bad days
    - to be less than perfect
    - to do what's best for you
    - to be yourself

    Hoping everyone's having a good weekend.

    Love to you all!  :throb:

    Hello, @Beccawife32, Welcome to after silence! Sorry to hear that you've had to endure the trauma of sexual assault. The road to recovery is not an easy one, but it is well worth walking. While it may take a long time to recover, it does get easier, I promise. What happened to you was NOT your fault, don't beat yourself up about it. If you ever need to talk, i'm here for you. Best wishes!

    Thank you everyone for your kindness. I’m overwhelmed by your support. This has been a lonely journey that I have been on until today. I started counselling today. Which was another huge step for me. I’m emotionally done for the day, but I didn’t want to not say thank you for the kindness.

    Hi Maajpvram, Welcome to AS. I am very sorry for what you went thru as a child. It was wrong and unfair to you. You will find tons of support and understanding here. I am sorry also that you are having difficulty with your husband. It is often hard to understand from a non-survivor perspective. Perhaps reaching out here will show him you do want help and any step we take is actually huge. It's not easy what we live with and it's not easy to share it. Beyond your husband, I do hope you find support for all those struggles we survivors go thru. You are not alone. Take your time and look around. I wish you the best on this complicated journey of healing. Mary
  18. Hello

    Hi leeny, Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for the trauma you experienced just a few months ago. Nobody ever has the right to hurt another in this way. Sadly there is a need for this place to exist, but it's also a relief to not be walking this path alone. You are not alone. Take your time and look around and do know that support and understanding are around each corner. I wish you the very best as you walk this path of healing. Mary

  20. Hello

    Hi @leeny Welcome to AS. I completely understand the mixed feelings. While I wish we all had a reason not to be here, I'm at least glad that we all have a safe space to support each other. I'm sorry about what happened to you. Please know that I believe you and that it was not your fault. I hope you end up finding this site to be as helpful as I do.

    Hello @Maajpvram and welcome to AS! I'm sorry that you have reason to be here, but am hoping that you will see that there is strength in numbers and you're not alone! I am sad to hear that you and your husband are having troubles. It's not uncommon for a survivor to have difficulty finding a balance between a healthy relationship and a past that is marred by trauma. I do hope that reconciliation can be achieved as you begin to heal from your childhood abuse. Wishing you all the best and lots of luck! - Capulet

    Hi. I hate this fact this forum exists. But feel glad (in a guilt induced kind of way) that there’s somewhere I could go to talk. My marriage has broken down and my wonderful husband has left me, because I refused to seek help over what happened to me as a child. That sounds harsher than it is. He’s a wonderful man, who got pushed past his breaking point. Hi.
