  4. Hi Andrea, Welcome back to the community. It is the same supportive place and tho there are many new members, there are still some older members you are likely to come across. I don't know if you remember me, but I've been here since 2015. I am sorry that current physical conditions are triggering your history. I do think that healing can be such a rollercoaster...a ride none of us wish to be on. It is good tho that you remembered us and the understanding that came with being part of the community. @mini.finch gave a great suggestion to retrieve your old account. Tho a search

  6. Hi Staystrong, Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for what you experienced as a child. It was so wrong and unfair. You will find tons of support here, from our many understanding and kind members. You are not alone. Sadly, healing can be a bit of a rollercoaster. We seem fine and then we are triggered by something and feel we takes steps back. It is good to reach out tho, I've found it helpful. The thoughts and feelings you have are quite normal for something that was quite un-normal. I get it tho, it is hard to say when we need help...it is very brave to reach out tho. Fe

  9. I like this, @Croft and can be seen as a welcome to all. It is kind of you to share and I hope that others see the value in this quote. Thank you for sharing it.
  10. Hi kumamon, Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for what happened to you as a child. It was unfair and undeserved. Even if you feel you can disconnect her from the abuse, it doesn't make what happened to you ok. It is always one's individual choice to keep a relationship or not with the abuser, but you obviously still struggle and hurt from what has happened. We are here for you, with understanding and support. I do suggest keeping the bigger questions and topic interaction for one of our private forums. There you can talk safely to others about what you are going thru. Don't f

  15. Hello AlmondJoy and welcome. I am very sorry for what you went thru as a child and the struggles you face now. What happened was unfair and undeserved. You are not alone in this. You are accepted and supported here by a very understanding community. It's not easy realizing and accepting what had happened, but it is the start of a journey down a healing road. It takes time, but it is possible. Memory issues are very common.
