  1. I agree. Especially about the triggers. I always end up seeing connections that aren't there: not because I want to, but because I can't stop.
  2. Wishing you all the best for your new start at your new school ! :hug:

    Dear Abuser

    Stich, You are so incredibly strong! I commend you for your strength and empowerment, it is truly inspiring.
