Hi all, joined the site as i have managed to avoid dealing with my abuse until recently and now i feel like anxiety, PTSD and panic attacks are taking over my life and ruining my relationships.


I just hope that this combined with my medication and seeing a counsellor can help me get back to being me.

HI lostinanxiety,

welcome to After Silence, My name is Paula, one of the Newbie support team here . To answer your question, yes we all feel anxious about all this, all of us here know that feeling, facing our past/pain/trauma is a major anxiety, but the good thing is, that you are not alone here and you are now on the road to dealing with your abuse.

if you need any help in getting around the board, please contact me

take care, Paula :hi:
