  1. Welcome to After Silence! I go by Wanna You did right by coming here, I believe every survivor should have the sense of a community. I understand if picking up therapy feels difficult for you, after such a let down. Here at After Silence, we discuss different ways to heal, cope and to deal with trauma. Many of our members are open about their experiences with therapy and meds. This is a safe place for you to connect with fellow survivors. Our members are kind, creating a warm atmosphere.

  2. Anxiety kept me up for hours last night. Old frustrations mixed with current worry. I managed to fall back to sleep at 5 am and spent the rest of the day trying to catch up with my studying. 

    I have finished off today's agenda, taken a shower and shall spend the rest of my night watching something completely useless. Just trying to push through. Tomorrow is a new day. 

     

  3. Hello @forestwhelk and welcome to After Silence! I go by Wanna. I am sincerely sorry about your trauma and ongoing pain. Getting therapy is a huge milestone, and I am happy you've found a good T. Trauma tends to stay until we actively deal with it. Time can give us distance, but healing begins when we start to process. Healing can feel like we're stuck in a loop, but really the journey includes ups and downs. Having a community can ease those bumps a bit. This is a safe place for you, where you decide the pace, and how much you'd like to share. Our members are kind and create a war
  4. Wish me luck tomorrow! I have scheduled 4 hours of studying and taken on a 7 hour shift. Yay.

      Oh my, that's a lot, Wanna! Good luck!! Make sure to find times to rest, too, ok? ❤️

      @Finchy I was too overwhelmed to do 4x45 min. I did about half of the time, which was intense since I am reading and making mind maps, and and now chilling before work. I'll do 2-10.30 pm, with 45 minutes of total break, so am chilling now. 

  5. Hello and welcome on board! I am Wanna by the way Yes, unfortunately trauma requires our initiative to go away. Healing from abuse is a complex task, but step by step we can heal and move on. Having a community and professional help is a golden combo in my opinion. All survivors need a place to just vent, share and connect with fellow survivors. You decide how much you'd like to share. We often ask ourselves "why did I let them do X and Y to me?" when the question is "why did they take such liberties". Shifting the blame to the actual source is a process. We are here for you, and
  6. I am waitlisted for "anxiety school now", basically a group therapy program. I actually do not feel the need for therapy right now anyways. Hoping it will take off soon, maybe this will be the "manual" I need.

      That's too bad you have to wait for it, but I hope it will be worth the wait. Keep taking care of yourself. ❤️

      I am, thank you Finchy. Our system is broke, but then every country seems to be broke these days. 

  7. Take your time, Rachal1. We are here for you always.
  8. Welcome back Rachal1! I've been wondering how you're doing. Good to have you back. Sending support and sunshine
  9. I'm hiding in my room. I have the sense mum will yell at step dad any moment and when I am there she usually accused me of conspiring against her if I do not agree with her.

      Oh dear, Wanna. I'm sorry. Sitting with you. ❤️ I hope things will be ok.

      @Finchy I have been at peace so far. Mum is frustrated about a lot of things and doesn't always pick the most convenient scenarios to express it. 

  10. Cancelling the rest of my day. If you've read my previous post, you know why. 

    Anxiety feels like a splitting head ache and I am just so meh rn. I hate this world sometimes. I have people I love in it but I hate the world we have to live in.

    Hello

    Hello! I am Wanna A bit late here, just was came back from vacay. It sounds like you had to carry an anonymous burden all too long. I am sorry therapy has not worked out for you. It's not easy to know what to do and when, and your trust issues are very understandable. It sounds like you have been through hell and back, but please know you are not alone. There are people who can relate, and this is a safe place. Healing is a rocky road, and sometimes we think we are trapped in a loop rather than moving forward. With time, you'll experience stabilization and balances. But
  12. Hello and welcome on board! I am Wanna I hope you find what you are looking for here. After Silence is in my experience an incredible community. Our moderators keep it safe, we have clear rules, but foremost our members are so kind. We all have different stories, but we tend to relate to each other one way or another. I am sincerely sorry about your trauma, please know you have nothing to be ashamed about. We believe you, and you decide how much you want to share. Take your time, we'll be here. All best, W
  13. Now I only have to go to the library and hopefully find the books in need for classes, then I am all settled for starting uni again in the fall.

      So proud of you, Wanna! I wish you all the best with uni when you start. :)

  14. Hello guys! Just stopping by telling you vacay goes well. After 2 intense days, I am resting more today before a guided tour in the evening. 

    Tomorrow, I'm stopping by my old uni city to see friends a couple of days, and then I'll go straight home.

      I am grateful for your replies. I am testing the waters and then we'll see. 

  16. I'm taking the bus tomorrow morning as a treat, starting 6.45. Ugh, only 3 shifts left. Then I'll go on vacay and prepare for university. I can't believe I've worked all summer. 

  17. Hello and welcome from me as well! I am Wanna I am truly sorry about unfortunate circumstances holding you back. I have been on anti-depressants myself and am having another round of therapy in the fall. After Silence is here for whenever you're ready. You pick the pace and the time, no pressure. Starting to share and participate is a big step, but it can make healing come by easier. I hope things will get better for you soon. Sending you sunshine /W
  18. Hello and welcome, I am Wanna You sound like a creative person with a lot of energy, and I am excited to have you here! You can post pics of your furbabies any time. I have a lot of respect for furparents. My best friend has a 9 month old Australian terrier, and I adore how she invests time and energy to raise that dog right. Anyhow, this is a safe place for any survivor to share (as much as they want), connect with fellow survivors and exchange advice. You can talk openly about your "alphabets", about therapy and anything going on in your life. We have a forum called Healing Throu

  20. Switching up from Elsa to Rapuzel? I am intrigued! Is this because there is this fanfic about Rapunzel being the secretly related to Elsa?

  22. Went blueberry picking with my friend and her furbaby today. Furbaby decided blueberries are nice and helped herself. I remembered today that me and this friend were supposed to go mini-golfing yesterday. We´re going tomorrow instead, my treat. She said she´ll be using the fact that I ditched her for a guy against me. I told her I will use her teasing me in the sixth grade against her. She let me off the hook. 😄

      Lol sounds like fun, Wanna! You have awesome friends. :) And your friend has a cute furbaby, eating blueberries! ❤️

      Nice!  It sounds like you have a decent support system.  

  23. Oboy oboy. I was adulting so much today! Pay day, so I transferred money into my savings account and payed my bills. I wrote my insurance company, did my work out, organized my clean laundry, showered... And I also went to see my friend after work before all of this. Busy day. 

    And tomorrow, I will get up at 4.45 am again... Vacation could note come sooner. 

  24. Having a day off. I deep cleaned my room, the bath, am doing some laundry and have cancelled a subscription. I will have lunch soon and then do a gentle work out. Then I did what I had on today´s to do list. Really nice when life is just that simple.

      @sk8er yup, it´s the circle of life. Organize so you can have your chaos. 

  25. I watched a reel today with a quote going something like "Healing is not about becoming the best version of yourself, but letting the worst version of yourself be loved". That really stuck with me.

      Aww wow. That's a really good quote!!
