Abuse Survivors Chatrooms:

Light Chitchat
This is our trigger-free zone to escape to when we need a break from abuse-related issues and talk of kittehs and unicorns, so please take heavy topics to one of the rooms below.
Serious Topics
This is where we talk of serious stuff: child abuse, domestic violence, rape, PTSD, poor ADLs, or any other issue abuse survivors may be struggling with. Don't worry about triggering others: we're here to talk of abuse and are capable of self-care. No DID, self-inflictions, adult issues, religion, ritual abuse, or off-topic.
Dissociative Identity Disorder (also known as Multiple Personality Disorder), DDNOS, switching, alters, inner communication, time gaps, etc. While both bigs and littles are welcome in other rooms (to talk of other, non-DID topics), discussions of your dissociative symptoms belong in this room only.
Self Inflictions
Self-Injury, Suicide, Substance Abuse, Eating Disorders, and any other ways we inflict harm on our bodies. Please do not glorify negative behaviors/habits, and do not threaten to harm yourself. Its unethical and illegal for us to try to talk you out of your plans. Please call hotlines if you think you might be in danger.
Adult 🔑
Discussions on recovery from the negative impact abuse made on your sexuality and/or reproductive system. Only open to those over 18.
Got Keys 🔑
This is where weekly chats take place. Feel free to use it as a spare room the rest of the time, its only open to those who have keys, 13+.
DID Youth Group 🔑
Only open to littles/middles (alters under 13yo) and moderators. Is mostly used for hosted chats, but also serves as an extra room for kids to hang out and support each other in a safe environment with no grownups present.

Fort Refuge Chat is limited to members only, just so it's free from spam and trolling. Registration is free, but please note that we're a strictly peer group, just a bunch of folks who have been abused, exchanging our experiences, discoveries, thoughts, and opinions on how the trauma of abuse has affected us and how we attempt to recover from its impact. There are no counselors on site, and we don't offer advice, one on one talks, undivided attention, or unconditional validation. If you're in an acute crisis or are looking for a volunteer to talk to - please check out Chat Alternatives on the right (or down, if you're using a small screen).

Who's Chatting:

Good actions give strength to ourselves and inspire good actions in others.
