It been a while since I have been on here and I don't think I have posted anything before
Remembering what you have gone through is so aweful I can't even describe and now I'm in a club I don't want to be in put here by something out of my control, I want control over my life again I want to be able to say I'm good and truly mean it, I don't want to have to paint my smile on and pretend to be happy one day I hope to be free from being fake

Hi Safeandfree,


Welcome to AS...or welcome back.  Sometimes it may take a second try to realize you are ready to post.  Please know this site is truly supportive, as it's members are kind and caring.  I understand wanting to take control again.  It is awful you have to experience a trauma to be here, but we all help each other out.  Healing is a journey, and we are all walking it together.  I wish you well.
