Hi, I'm Paula, and i've been a member of this fabulous community since 2007, and now i am a member of the Newbie Support team here, which i am very proud to be. I hope i can help new members settle in and feel safe here. Joining AS was one of the best things i did for my healing journey, I hope it does the same for everyone else here.

chant2012How could this be your fault? You had no control over the r*pe happening and you definitely had no control over what your friends did. You weren't even there! I am so sorry that they did this... How awful. Sitting with you. ♥

somerandomguy1985A lot of people think they know what's best for you after you've been through abuse, but in reality they don't know what the hell they are doing. I've been hurt through similar situations. I'm sorry that they didn't take your feelings into consideration when they did this. Let them know that this isn't alright and that you don't appreciate this.

I've been abused by many people all my life; sometimes inadvertently, but still abuse. How was I chosen for this abuse while some have never been abused? I don't understand... *confuzzled*
hugs lots of them
There's a giant glass box with everything that was ever amazing, awe inspiring, beautiful and creative. I'm outside the glass banging, begging and screaming to be let in. No one notices..
So very sad and upset... It is still looming over me... I can't stop grieving... And most people get irritated at me... I just can't... I am sorry... *sobs*
oooh seriously considering being really masochistic and watching what I assume would be a triggering movie.... I used the word right you just have to understand my humor to get it.
I'm sorry if my existance offends you. Actually, I'm not.
vakryHehe I feel like that sometimes.
