Hi everyone! I'm new here! I'm a 20 year old college student. I've been looking around and this seems like such a nice place with very supportive people. I have not really opened up to anyone about the things that have happened to me. I was hoping this might be a place i could start to feel comfortable to start to open up a little.

Take your time. If you like you can just look around the boards until (if and when) you want to share your story with us.

We're here for you sweetie.

Hi everyone! I just wanted to thank you all so much for replying. Everyone is so wonderful and I feel very welcome. I am sort of in the process of working things out right now and maybe a will be able to share a little more soon. It's weird writing everything down when it is even kinda hard to just think about you know?

Well any way! No I am not from Arizona but it's definitely one of my favorite places. I think it is so beautiful and I LOVE the weather there! I have some family there and I would love to live there eventually.

Oh and my name is Alisa (pronounced Aleeeesa! hehe everyone says Alyssa by accadent) laugh.gif
Thanks again everyone!

Welcome Alisa! I wanted to name my first daughter that (had a friend with that name growing up) but named her Kaitlyn instead. Came closer the second time around with my daughter Alyssa. Just wanted to say I love your name! I am jealous 'cause I never got to use it.

Welcome to After Silence. Take your time in posting. It can be scary to share your story with people. If and when you are ready, you will find many people here who understand.
