At SurvivorsResource forums you can tell your story and get support and encouragement from other survivors, besides discussing any questions that you deem important.
There are several rules of how to use SurvivorsResource Forum. If someone has started a new topic, told about their problems, and is awaiting for support, compassion and understanding from you, do not reply to them by telling about your pain. It is not fair. The one who has started the topic will not get help and will face others' replying to you. Start a new topic for getting help from other survivors.
If your post contains intimate details, a description of your feelings when you are "low", a story of your abuse, or if you have a bad day, mark the topic with the word "Trigger". In that way, the other visitors will see that the content of you post can trigger them and provoke unpleasant emotions.
The topics related to religion, sexual orientation and sex can trigger the other survivors. Mark the topic by "Trigger."
IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING SUICIDE, what you should do at first is not to stay alone. Find a close person, friend, parent, relative, with whom you can talk about your attitude. If you can not find those people, find out a crisis line telephone number in your area, or go to the page http://www.survivorsresource.com/links.html, find a crisis line telephone number and call them. (There are links to web-sites containing crisis line phone numbers in the Russian cities and world countries.) Remember that you are not alone. Suicide is the most unfit means of alleviating your pain. At SurvivorsResource Forum, please, do not make posts containing the threats of commiting suicide. We do not know how to deal with such posts. They will not be made viewable by the public.
Do not create topics solely containg the words "What can I do?" or "Help me!!!" Formulate your topic in more detail, and you will see that other people will more willingly reply to you, without avoiding your post of fear to face triggering, unpleasant details.
Remember, that while discussing problems arising in survivors of SA, there can be multiple viewpoints. Many survivors have lived for many years, without saying a word about what happened to them to anyone, and without getting professional help. Because of that, discussion, support, and understanding are welcome in SurvivorsResource Forum.
We recommend that you don't use your real name and home/work address for your safety.
At SurvivorsResource forums, it is prohibited to exchange contact information, disperse advertisement, make knowingly false statements, threats, and to abuse.
