Hello, I'm Singingangel and am new here.

I would like to share my story but I need time to get to know the site and make sure I feel safe. I'm sure it's a safe site but I feel very vulnerable at the moment.

I look forward to getting to know you.

Hi there. I am also new here. I completely get the feeling of feeling vulnerable, I feel the same way and have not shared my story yet either. So far I have been made to feel welcome and I hope you feel welcome also. Best of luck with your healing journey and I hope this group is able to help you as well.

Hi Singingangel,


Welcome to AS.  I am very sorry for the trauma you have suffered, but be assured, you will not be pressured to say or post anything.  Take your time and get to know the place a bit first.  I know it is hard to be trusting after a trauma, so do what is best for you.  I do wish you well on your healing journey.

I'm glad to see that there are more newbies.  :) I'm in the same boat as you...trying to get a feel for everything.
