After keeping my silence for more than 15 years, I finally found the courage to tell a close friend.  That was rough, but it also made me start to deal with what had happened to me.  I never realized how traumatizing remembering could be.  I was very happy to find AS.  I'm not sure how to start on this road to healing, but I think that having a community here to support and educate will help. 

Thanks,

Holly

Hello Holly.

That was very brave of you, to share your story with a friend. You have made the first step towards your healing, by acknowledging openly what happened to you.

Welcome to AS. Here there is always someone who is able and willing to listen.

Light to you and healing.
