Hello everyone!! So glad to find this site. I actually found it a few years ago, but did not stay committed. Been having some problems lately, related to PTSD, so my therapist found the site again for me. I'm not usually a shy person, but I am still greatly bothered by the rape and molestation that I've experienced. I'm looking forward to continuing my healing journey with this site and support. Thank you Aftersilence for who you are and what you do!

Welcome to AS! I am sorry for what you have experienced. I think it is great that you are not usually a shy person. I, on the other hand, am not a very outgoing person. I hope you find the support you are looking for and wish you the best of luck on your healing journey.
Take care.

You are definitely not alone. Many of us here were molested and/or also have PTSD. I hope that being here helps you feel connected and helps with your healing process :candle:

Hi, i'm so so relieved and happy to be among you guys. Over the years I have been on and off with attending support groups. I found them to be too confronting. I have complex ptsd and have been desperate to talk to people like me, I am over the moon that I can talk about myself through this site, i'm at the stage of my healing where I need feedback and answers. At the same time I hope my story can help others.

You all are great!! I've read each post with a smile on my face. It kinda feels like a family already. I have an issue though. Found out my T is retiring :cry:  :cry:  :cry: . I've had her for 6 years. I cried and cried and cried uncontrollably in her office. I know it's a professional relationship and I respect that. I remember one of the 1st things she said to me, "you're safe here." And I knew I was. :cry: . I'm afraid of losing the level of support she brings and has brought to me. I have attachment and relationship issues galore. And I don't deal with loss very well. Can anyone relate?
