  1. Hello MrsCF, welcome to AS. I thought your introduction was great. Being the scapegoat of your Mother's Narcissistic rants is very difficult and very damaging. I am glad you found someone you love who loves you back. I think you will find this site to be very helpful. Welcome a board.

    Teleah, I am so sorry you are so sad and overwhelmed with emotion. Don't be afraid to let your tears out. TC is a little girl and she alone can not be expected to carry all the sadness. I am sorry that she has become a part of you that you have had to be exposed to. I am sorry your husband has chosen to take a job full time in Missouri. I do not know where you live right now, so I do not know the implication of his choices on your lifestyle or your marriage. What I do know, is that there is a tremendous amount of sadness connected to this life event. Taleah, change is very very difficult for t
  3. Thank you for sharing. You are so right about all of this. That is exactly what my T and I talk about. I still fall down but I am getting up so much faster. I wish you were not in the same situation, but I must admit, it is nice to hear someone going through the same thing as me. Best of luck in your recovery. I am sorry to hear about your Grandfathers. I have lost all my grandparents and both my parents. It is never easy.

    Taleah, I am so sorry you are in so much pain from meeting TC. It breaks my heart that little TC was exposed to things no child should ever be exposed to. You need to mourn for her and yes it hurts like hell but it won't hurt like it does now forever. Over time, the hurt will change, I believe it will never fully be gone but it will be survivable. Please be kind to yourself and gentle with yourself. I am sitting with you offering my support. None of this is easy. Big hugs.
  5. Taleah, sitting with you. Sending you hugs.

    This battle

    Teleah, I am so sorry you are feeling so down. I am very worried about you. I feel as if you need more significant support than you have here. Perhaps you could call the suicide prevention line or check in to the mental health facility in your area. I am extremely worried!!! You have been so down lately, perhaps you need a real professional to help you out of this hole you have slid in. I know your Therapist situation has not been stable of late which makes this all the more difficult. I hear you Taleah. I understand how difficult and long this journey is. It is so tiring. You can do it though

    the forest

    Teleah, you are strong. Stop running, stop and take deep breaths of the beautiful smells in the forest. You and DBNB can enjoy eating marshmallows around the campfire. You are ok. It is all going to be ok. The Darkness is only temporary. The light will be coming soon. Enjoy the sounds and smells of the forest and the laughter and security of your friends joining you around the beautiful campfire. Big hugs being sent your way. Hang in there. This will pass, just hold tight.
  10. Taleah, I hope you get some sleep tonight. It is so hard to get through the day when you are tired. Insomnia sucks!!!! I am so happy to hear you took your daughter to her T. I am sorry that trying to connect to little Teleah has triggered you. I know what that can be like, I too have fallen victim to that in my past. Be kind to yourself. You have been through so much lately. I will sit with you if you would like. Take care. Sweet dreams.
  11. Taleah, I am so very sorry you are feeling so low and guilty and shamefull. That is a huge burden you are carrying. I am also sorry you are unable to sleep because of it. You have just undergone an absolutely enormous trauma with your daughter. She may not have been serious and I will get back to that in a minute but no mother should ever have to experience that kind of trauma. Having been through a trauma like that activates the subconscious, it takes you right back to the place you felt so vulnerable and scared. That is called getting retraumatized. This happens often in PTSD patients. It

    Teleah, I am sorry you are in so much pain. I am thinking about you. You are not alone. Sending hugs if that is ok
