  1. Hello @_Nikki_! Welcome to AS! I'm glad you found your way here. I'm sorry to hear what you've been through, though, even starting from when you were a toddler. You did not deserve any of it. You'll find a lot of very kind and supportive people here. This is a huge step you're taking in the healing process and in practicing opening up and talking to people more. I wish you well. ❤️ -Finch
  2. Welcome to AS, @Lillysurvivor! I'm glad you found your way here, though I am so terribly sorry for what you've been through. As Mary said, it must be so fresh. I'm so sorry. You didn't deserve what happened to you. And it must have been so awful that you needed surgery. I hope that you're recovering from the surgery smoothly. Reaching out here is a great start to healing mentally...you'll find a lot of kind and supportive people. We're all here for you. Sending you strength and tons of support! ❤️ Take gentle care of yourself. -Finch

      Thank you so much @Field8, @WendyAlone, and @sisyphus. You're all so sweet. ❤️ Truly it's MY honor to know you all.

      Thanks for asking, Fieldy. It went ok-ish...as I thought, my doctor put me down about my weight. Insisted I change my eating habits and exercise more. She also still refused to believe I have as many migraines as I do. I need to get a new doctor.

      Ugh. Why don't doctors believe us? 

      I did finally find a trauma sensitive doctor, same way I did with the therapist. I made a list of standards and discussed that I have medical trauma before making the appointment. It still took a couple of tries.

      Blessings with healing your body!

  11. Welcome to AS, Charlieag! I'm so glad you found your way here. But I am very sorry for what you've been through. You did not deserve it. I also was a child when I went through what I did. You're not alone. This is a big first step in healing, to find a community that can support you. We're here for you! Best wishes! -Finch
  12. Feeling like a zombie.

  13. Hehe, I'm the same...I like a ton of games, so it's hard to list. I love the Yakuza series (including Judgment, which I just finished), Atelier series (ex. Atelier Meruru, Atelier Sophie), and of course the Zelda game are great and Final Fantasy. I recently finished The Outer Worlds, which was a quirky and cool game. Really loved it. Ghost of Tsushima is also a recent fave. See, the list could go on and on. Nice to know another gamer around here!

  17. Hello!! Welcome to AS. I'm glad you found your way here. You'll find a lot of really kind and supportive people on the forums. It's a great idea to find healthy ways to cope like this. I'm so sorry for what you've gone through. You didn't deserve any of it. It can be so hard to handle, which is why we go to those unhealthy coping mechanisms...but I'm proud of you for being in recovery. ❤️ What a huge step in healing! Hehe I'm 32, and I'm told I look 21, so it seems like we are both of the younger-looking types. 😄 Always a nice compliment I think lol. I hope your enjoyment for your hobbies
  18. Hello and welcome to AS, @Irisdescent_fly! I'm glad you found your way here and got the courage to write your first post. It is difficult to open up to a new community. But you're in the right place...we're all very supportive and friendly. I'm glad that you made that decision one year ago to leave your abusive boyfriend. Congratulations! That is huge. It is a big, big step that is not easy to do whatsoever. I'm glad that you've been finding lots of support systems and healthy coping skills like meditation and yoga. Very proud of you for all of this. I wish you all the best in writing that l
