I am new, too, & am from Europe and study philosophy. I started my healing journey some 10 years ago, so I am somewhere on the way. I am looking for fellow wanderers, because the it is so difficult - sometimes - to communicate with the normal world about After Silence issues. I need some company and am happy to find a forum here where so many things are discussed which are alas normally held under silences.
I like that this forms puts emphasis also on the silly things to chill out and enjoy life, that's so important. So we'll see what will happen.
I wish everyone all the best,

Welcome Kareena hug.gif

Glad you are here, but not that you have to be!

I am two years into my healing, although the events took place six years ago. For me coming to After Silence has made an enormous positive impact on my healing. I don't think there is a better aid in the process than a network of survivors who are so warm, welcoming and caring.

Welcome again! hug.gif
