Welcome to AS. I really like your name. And don't worry about not being able to open up. Things like this take time, and we'll give you all the time you need.

You'll come to realise that we are like a world wide based family here, and you've just become part of that. And we're going to give you all the time you need to feel comfortable enough to open up and share with us your fears. And when you do, we'll be waiting here to help chase them away. So please don't feel like you need to jump in and start blurting everything out to feel welcome. You're already welcome just by having the courage to introduce yourself

Welcome to After Silence! It's quite understandable that you don't feel comfortable enough yet to share your story. As the others have said already, there is plenty of time and no pressure to jump right in with it. We are a diverse family here... some bold and speak right out, others shy taking some time to find comfort first, which we offer in abundance! Welcome and I hope you find relief and healing here, or at least the beginnings of.
