Hi, I’m new

Hi,

I’m new to this. I don’t actually really know how forums work. But I’ve realized I need to start talking about my past traumas because they’ve been bubbling up the past couple of years. The traumas I’ve suffered as a child, I’ve never told anybody. 10 years ago I told a boyfriend in general that I was abused and he seemed freaked out about it. But I can’t hold this inside anymore. Hoping to share my traumas and find others who have been through similar. 

 

Thanks for listening.

Hi, @SnowOwl - 

Welcome to After Silence! Forums can be tricky when you first start using them, but it gets easier the more you do it. As you look around, it will help to kind of see how everyone uses them :)  I'm sorry for the trauma you endured and for the way that boyfriend reacted when you told him - that's not okay. I know it's hard when you feel there's no one you can talk to and no one will understand. You've come to a good place to share your experiences and gain support! I'm hoping you will start feeling better after becoming a part of this community :)  

If you need help with the boards or anything else, please send me a message! I'm here for anything you need. 

Best wishes,
Poppy
