  1. I'm about to cry in this damn airport. I am the luckiest woman to have the people I do in my life ūüė≠

    1. Free2Fly


      Safe hugs :hug: if ok?

  2. So this is what bliss feels like. Let's see how long it lasts this time. 

  3. Triggered and I don't know why. Listening to music is the only thing keeping me from having a panic attack.

      Sitting with you if okay

      I can relate that's pretty much me right now, except I'm pretty sure I'm delirious right now or in some kind of heavy reminiscence of the past , with old music like the 60s

      sitting with u if ok?

    Sorry you're going through this @teleah I personally do not believe you belong to anyone other than yourself, no matter what your abuser did. You are still a loving wife, no matter what. No matter how you've been feeling. Safe hugs
  5. I'd rather be alone, cooking for myself tomorrow.

      @goldraindrops I hope so! You deserve that as well and I hope you get it tomorrow!

      Cook up a storm and all of your favorites!!  :throb:  Happy Thanksgiving.

      Thanks @Capulet I ended up having a really good day. Hope you had the same! 

  6. I really wish I'd done so many things in life differently. All I do is daydream now. 

    1. Capulet


      Ain't anything wrong with daydreaming.  I do it frequently.  Just don't lose sight of what's ahead, friend.  We might miss something amazing if we spend too much time on things we cannot change. :throb:

      Thank you @Capulet ^_^ I'm trying not to! I'm trying to find something to be grateful for and something to look forward to every day.

  9. It was nice to just "forget" for tonight. 

    1. elisand


      yes we all deserve a break sometimes

  12. Almost had a panic attack at work. I feel like I don't know how to be normal.

    1. josiel


      If ok, :hug:

    2. Dahliaa


      Thanks for the safe hug :) @josiel

  13. My "assignment" for my next therapy session is to write down exactly what happened in full detail. I don't even know where to start.

    1. snmls


      Writing it all down can be very liberating. I typed out my whole story for my T to read about a year ago.  It's definitely overwhelming to sit down and let everything come out, but for me at least once I started writing, I couldn't stop.  Everything just poured out.  Remember, that all you have to do is write it, you don't have to read it.  I never read what I wrote, even to edit it.  

      Be kind to yourself as you write. 

    2. Dahliaa


      Thanks so much @snmls My therapist actually wants me to read it aloud to myself. I can't even begin to imagine how I'll react if/when I do. I'm really glad it was liberating for you. I really hope it's the same way for me.

  14. Depression is back and it's worse than ever.

    1. Beamcam

    2. Dahliaa


      Thanks girl. Check your email @Beamcam

  15. Welcome to AS. I really hope you enjoy it here and find the healing that you so much deserve
  16. I mean, I understand being in a verbally abusive relationship doesn't exactly scream emergency but the after hours counselor could've sounded just a bit more concerned instead of bored.

    1. MeBeMary


      Anytime something or someone breaks you down mentally and emotionally, it screams urgency to me. The word abuse in that statement makes it urgent. You deserve better, from this abuser and you deserve better from your counselor. Sorry this happened. Sitting with you. :hug: if ok.

    2. Dahliaa


      Thank you for the safe hugs @MeBeMary She wasn't even my specific counselor. I'm starting to notice a lot of the therapists I've met share this same sentiment. Thank you for the encouraging words.
