Hi everyone,


I am quite nervous and scared to start to share.  I have been a member for a few years now, do to a past history of bad things happening to me.  Unfortunately I am now in a position where I need help and support with newer current bad event.  I don't know where to start to explain my past and current situation.  I have a counselor who knows about the past but doesn't yet know about the current situation/event.  Looking for support.

Hi Hurt1979,


My name is Mandy and I am apart of the Newbie Support Team here at AS. My job is to help you settle in and answer any questions that you may have.


How do you feel now? I understand how you feel...I felt like that too when I first joined..or even opened up about everything. I hope you can find the support and comfort here, that this place has given me.

Hi hurt1979,


I am in your position as well -- been a member since March but didn't post here until June. I had been struggling with events that happened to me awhile back but when another situation occurred in early March, I sought out online support. I finally came across AS and joined mostly because I had exhausted any other outlet I had (can't/won't talk to friends, don't have a therapist, etc.) and although I have only posted a few times, it is a liberating feeling. I hope you find solace here!
