Hi everyone 

I was told about AfterSilence from my counselor my counselor encouraged me to sign up.  this year marks the 4 year anniversary of the trauma I endured when I was 18 years old

I'm an old soul when it comes to music. One of my favorite artists is Johnny Mathis his music has been comforting to me through many rough times in my life. Im currently a senior in college I plan to work with young people after I graduate

Nice to meet you all 🙂

Hello eitalianqueen,

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for the trauma you experienced for years ago. Nobody has the right to hurt another this way. You have found a very supportive site, tho. You are not alone.

Take your time and look around, and when you are comfortable feel free to interact with members. You will find them understanding and kind. I am glad that you were encouraged to seek us out. I wish you well on this journey we call healing.
