  1. What Did You Do For You Today?

    I painted my nails a pretty wine color- and even though I ended up painting around my nails as well, I haven't smudged it yet... yipee!
  2. The Inner Child Thread

    We both have been jumpy and bummed most of today. Now we are scared, freaked out- what's hiding in the shadows?? So I am taking her to our safe place. A lovely beach, with soft sand and gentle sunshine. She has a little house there, wood with a thatch roof. Inside is a squishy bed, lilac walls, stuffed animals, crayons and paper... all kinds of fun stuff to play with. Outside, keeping watch, is a pride of mama lions- they are so strong and fast and love her very much. It feels so safe there, she can rest. She is tucked in now, under a fluffy blanket, with a yellow stuffed bunny. I love you. Get some sleep.
  3. The Healing Quotes Thread!

    i think this one sums up the healing process- "Victory is won not in miles but in inches. Win a little now, hold your ground, and win a little more later"- Louis L'Amour
  4. The Inner Child Thread

    I asked her how she was. She is tired and wants to take a nap. And she can't sit still We didn't sleep all night again I promise to take better care of us. I can't keep us up all the time. I don't know how to fix it.

  9. Newbie!

    Hey there to all of you brave people! I am happy to be joining this site and looking forward to some validating conversations. A whole group of people who have a clue of what I am going through! It has been lonely for me lately, and I need to know that I'm not a freak. Anybody ever feel this way? I look forward to chatting- I admire you all for your strength. Janey
  10. Invalidation. Words Can Hurt!

    Hi, I am new to this, but I have one to contribute as well... From my best friend about a month ago when new memories surfaced: " I can't believe you're still letting this bother you" I didn't reply at the time related to the feelings of utter worthlessness. But what support! OOOOH I have another one- from my roommate 3 days after being discharged from an adult psychotherapy day program (after being there for a month) : "If you're not gonna be in therapy, then you need to go to work" Because I'm all better after discharge, and have no need to unwind for a few days. Daily therapy is a vacation!! These are the comments that make me wanna become a hermit.
