  1. Welcome to AS, @blackwidows! I'm glad you found your way here, though I'm terribly sorry for what you've been through. You'll find a lot of supportive and kind people here, so you're not alone. ❤️ Sending you lots of support and well wishes! Take your time exploring the site and post when you're comfortable. -Finch
  2. Welcome to AS, @Sageharris! I'm glad you found your way here, though I'm so terribly sorry for what you've been through that brought you here. I'm so sorry. You did not deserve what you experienced...especially to grow up with it as a child. Your father was supposed to be there for you and love you, not harm you. Working through the anxiety and depression can be very difficult (VERY), but you've come to the right place to start to get some help. I also suggest finding a therapist experienced in trauma if you haven't gotten one already. You'll find a lot of very kind and supportive peopl
  3. Really trying hard not to hate myself...but it's so difficult.

  5. Welcome to AS, Yeenodon! I'm glad you found your way here. Yes, we are an active forum! I am nonbinary and identify as agender, too, most of the time (gender can be confusing...so I'm stuck between just ID'ing as enby or being more specific with agender)...anyhoo. You are not alone. I'm so very sorry for what you've been through that brought you here. You didn't deserve what happened to you. But you are among friends now that can relate to you and offer you a lot of support and kindness. ❤️ It's very cool what you are interested in! I never heard of either of those creatures, so it
  6. Welcome back, Andrea! Nice to meet you! I'm glad you returned to the forums. First off, I suggest posting in the Help Desk about your past account. The moderators can help you sort things out with it. They can merge the old one with your new one, so you don't lose your old posts. Secondly, I'm so sorry for what you've been through. CSA and any other abuse sticks with us for years...age doesn't matter. I'm sorry to hear you've been doing not so great lately. I hope that your health improves when you have your second hip replacement. ❤️ I'm sure it's very frustrating, but you're doing you
  7. Welcome to AS, @RainbowRose! So nice to have you here. I'm glad your friend recommended us. I'm so sorry for what you have experienced, though. It was undeserved, and none of it was your fault. I'm glad to know that you're in therapy. Have you found that it helps? PTSD is a demon to work with, but therapy can help so much. Thank you again for joining and for reaching out to us. I will send you a PM after this with some helpful links. Best wishes! -Finch
  8. Welcome to AS, @Staystrong888! I'm glad you found your way here. I'm so sorry for what you've been through. You didn't deserve any of it. I'm also sorry that things recently have made negative emotions crop up, leading you to need to reach out...but I'm really glad that you did. You'll find a lot of supportive and kind people here. You're not alone. ❤️ Best wishes to you. -Finch
  9. Hello and welcome to AS, @Reika! I'm so glad you found your way here. It was a happy accident. I'm sorry though for what you've experienced. I'm sorry you've been struggling. I hope that being here on AS will help you in your path to healing. You'll find a lot of really kind and supportive people here. I love the photo! That's a mourning dove, I believe! Wow, so pretty! ❤️ Take your time exploring the site. I wish you all the best. -Finch
  10. Thank you for sharing this @Croft. ❤️ Truly a beautiful meaning that so many of us need to see. So I think you did great posting it here.
  11. Welcome to AS, @kumamon! I love your username. Is it based on the mascot with the same name? Anyhoo, I'm glad you found your way here...though I am terribly sorry for what you've experienced. You were just a child. You did not deserve it at all, and none of it was your fault. When something happens to you as a child, it makes sense that you might question if it even happened because our memories don't always form, especially during trauma. But I believe you that it happened...and somehow your sister was able to move on. I'm so sorry again. You'll find a lot of really kind and supportive

I wish you all the best! -Finch

  14. Welcome to AS, @Smiling! Thank you for saying hello. I'm glad you found your way here. I'm so sorry, though, for what you've been through that brought you here. You didn't deserve it, nor are you at fault. You'll find a lot of supportive people in this community...take your time exploring. I wish you all the best! -Finch
  15. Welcome to AS, @AlmondJoy! I love your username, by the way...that is one of my favorite candy bars! I'm so glad you found your way here. I'm terribly sorry for what you've experienced as a child. It sounds like you've gone through a lot recently, what with the autism diagnosis as well as realizing what happened to you as a child. I'm so sorry. You didn't deserve what happened to you. Like Mary said, memory issues are fairly common among survivors, especially when the incident(s) happened when we were young. You're not alone in this. ❤️ Sending you strength and support! Take your t
