  1. Welcome, Lilly, This is a supportive group so you should be able to find what you are looking for.
  2. Having supportive people around you and a good therapist can really help. I think it also helps to know that you can heal and that you don't have to go through it forever. I repressed a lot of things until I was old enough to deal with them but once I did allow them to resurface and deal with them (with nightmares, panic attacks etc.), it only took a few years to heal and have been fine ever since. I recently published a book on healing and then thought that perhaps I should get into some groups like this to see if I can help others that way. When the anxiety and/or nightmares weren't too bad, I found that it helped to do some slow, deep breathing and that would calm me. Of course, there were times that I was beyond that and needed others to help talk me thru it. I'm glad you have someone to do that for you.
  3. Fightinghard, Welcome. Nightmares and flashbacks plus the anxiety and fear are horrible to live through. I am so sorry you are suffering like this. What have you been doing so far to heal?
  4. I started the recovery process almost 25 years ago and rarely think about having been sexually abused. Twenty years ago, I wrote a book about recovering from sexual abuse but couldn't find a publisher. After retiring, I brought my manuscript out, revised and expanded it and got it published earlier this month. I want to help others recover and give them hope when they are going through the pain and suffering of the recovery process. I look forward to getting to know others here and providing support.
