  1. Hey Blondie, hi there. Nice to see a familiar person. Fallenstar, Reglois and Struggling, thank you all for your welcome. Going to look into the grief and loss section now. Not having a good day
  2. Thank you Mary. One thing I have learned is this is a journey that is for life. While it may not always be at the front of our minds, when triggered by something, it will come back up. Maybe not as hard and devastating as the previous time, but hard enough to seek out help. I am not sure what I am looking for this time around. I guess just a place that I feel safe, and to see how far I have come.
  3. Thank you Patricia. I must admit it has been an extremely hard past eight months. I am very lucky though in that I have an extremely good psychologist that I have been working with.
  4. Hi there I first joined AS in 2009. Since then so much has happened in my life. I met a lady in the later part of that year on here, who I fell in love with and eventually moved countries in 2012 to be with her. Sadly she passed away last year after being diagnosed with a terminal illness. At her funeral her father triggered my PTSD and I have been dealing with the aftermath of that, mixed in with my grieving for her since then. The other day for some reason I needed to come back here and read some of my prior posts along with those of friends I knew here at the time. This space
  5. Hi there Welcome to AS. From what I read, sounds like you are from NZ as well. Me too. I really hope you find what you need here. Mon
  6. Briararosa - I totally agree with you - it is all the more confusing to sort out now. Actually its hard as hell. How do you deal with hate and anger when all that was shown to you was love, gentleness and kindness. I was on a course last week where one of the facilitators read out an article where they had interviewed 20 men in prision who were offenders of csa. They asked them if they threatened their victims and most said there was no need to as they groomed them well from an early age. In my case I was groomed from at least 3 years old but maybe a bit before. Its no wonder I thought
  7. Thank you Karen - yes it has been disapointing not hearing anything back. Makes one feel it is less.
  8. From my step-son regarding my not telling my husband of my abuse when we first met ... - had he known your secrets he may not have entered into a relationship with you. WTF - my abuse didn't come up for me until at least 10 years later From my ex husband on the same topic ... - I am not hiding your abuse from the kids like you did to me - if only I knew back then - you F*cking sucked me in. Also from my ex husband ... - I only started to realize where you were coming from when I found out your brothers were involved too. Again WTF - he knew my father abused me for 14 years. Isn't that
