  1. Thank you all for your warm welcome. I am still having a little problem navigating this site, but I will keep trying this time. I still find it very difficult to tell my story, or even to talk about it. Although I have been in individual therapy, group therapy, and even an inpatient facility for PTSD, Dissociative disorders, caused by sexual abuse, rape, & incest, each time I stay until the treatment has ended, when I leave I feel that I am alright, within a year, I am depressed, and other issues are popping up. I have gone longer than a year, feeling really great, then something triggers me, and I am depressed again, because there is something else that I have not dealt with. I am going to try to talk about it in telling my story. I hope I will be of some support to others, because I do understand that it is not easy, but it is worth it, so I keep searching for the healing, and I will not give up, and I encourage all of us to not give up.
  2. I am a grandmother, could be a great grandmother, and I have been a survivor for a long time. I don't know if it is just me, or the nature of the trauma. I have been in individual therapy, group therap, mother's group, and inpatient therapy. I do well for a while, and then I am not doing so well. It seems that the older I get the more I understand what is going on with me, but I still find it hard to cope with at times. I can't cry. I have been on this board before, but I found it rather difficult to get around. I hope that I can do better this time.
