Hi everyone,

 

I'm new here and am eager to begin the healing process after four years of denial. Not completely sure what that process will look like, or really what "healed" looks like in the end, but I think it's about time to began to find out. I look forward to meeting you all and learning how to be as supportive to others here as everyone else I've seen post.

 

I'm a little nervous about being in the right place or not, but I hoping to make some friends, so please message me! I'm a teen who loves hiking, reading, yoga, and playing guitar (country, rock, and the best band of all time, Rush) for starters.

 

Talk soon!

Mailee

Hi Mailee,

 

Welcome to AS.  I'm sorry for the trauma that you have suffered, but you will find this a very supportive site.  I was nervous, too, in the beginning, but everyone here is very kind.  The great thing is that this is a place where we all understand and no longer have to feel so alone.  I wish you well on your healing journey.

 

Mary
