    @VLX600 Welcome to After Silence. I'm sorry you experienced trauma, but I am glad you're seeking support. I also find it makes a huge difference to be in contact with others who have experienced similar things. And along the healing path there have been numerous times I am glad to find others who understand the particulars. I hope your therapist keeps being a help as well.

    @Here2Heal Welcome to AS! I'm sorry you are in a difficult phase with your healing and a resurgence of PTSD. Having a primary relationship in distress is challenging even without PTSD, and I can understand why your emergency responses are back in full force. I'm glad you have a friend to stay with, and you are right that this is a caring a supportive community, so I hope it can help provide you with some more support right now to help you through.

    @faeryblossoms a warm welcome to you. This place is very supportive, and also full of information and shared experience. Personally I am also working with decades-old trauma, and I know that it being long ago does not diminish the pain. I'm glad you're here for extra support besides therapy as you take this step in healing.
