Glad I'm not alone


Recommended Posts

I realized today that I need a safe place where I can talk and get support while maintaining my anonymity. I am currently in therapy, but I needed something a little different and I'm glad I found AS.

Hello ThornedRose and Welcome.

I am very sorry you endured something traumatic, but am glad you found us. You can be assured to find support and understanding here. Our members are a good bunch of people. You will find yourself not so alone, but with that anonymity you speak of. You can also interact at your own pace and know it is a safe place to share what you are comfortable with. 

I wish you nothing but the best as you continue this journey we call healing.

Hello there! I am glad you found us too :flowers: I am Wanna. 

My warmest welcomes to our platform. Our members form an amazing support system, where you can both get and offer advice, share within what you feel comfortable with and make wonderful connections. 

I believe a community and professional help complete each other. Whilst therapy can offer professional guidance, a community reminds you that you are not alone. Anonymity is something we value highly here. All so you can have a safe spot, taking things your at own pace. 

Sending you my sincere sympathies, and wishing you the very best upon your healing journey. :aswelcomesu:

Rooting for you, 

W ☀️

If you should need anything at all, feel free to message me any time! I'm around! 

Wishing you the best,
Poppy

@missfrier thanks so much. Signing on and reading all of these notes tonight is kind of overwhelming, in a good way. I'm just so grateful. 🙂

@8888 Thank you so much! Apparently I'm still working on accepting that I'm not responsible for what happened to me, because I needed to hear that tonight. 😢 😘

@WannaMoveOn Thank you so much. Given my intense trust issues, I'm not used to having a support system that I feel totally comfortable with, outside of my therapist. I'm sure  I'm not the only one here struggling with that, and that brings me comfort.

Thanks @Poppy_ I appreciate that so much, I'm not good at reaching out to people, so I'm grateful for the open invitation. 🙂
