    Hello!

    Hello 👋 Welcome to AS. You will find this a safe place to share...I cannot really speak out loud at all IRL of my traumas, but find that there are many kindred spirits here. Welcome to our little corner of the inter web Cheers, invisible
  3. i know nothing about signatures but i just wanna say hello 👋 and it’s good to see you @Reyzl i have missed you!
  4. Hi Invisible,

    Sounds like you're having a rough day. I'm glad you got to talk w your therapist but sounds like it was a pretty short conversation. What's going on w her schedule? Can't you at least get an appt scheduled, even if it's not for this week? I would hate that uncertainty too... Are there things she could suggest to help you until you meet? Or maybe an emergency back-up plan?

    Sleep deprivation is pretty awful. It makes everything feel so much harder to handle. I hope that you were able to nap a little today. And I hope that you can get some good sleep tonight. 

    Hang in there Invisible1. There are lots of folks here who care about you and are rooting for you. :throb:

    Sending you lots of peaceful comforting energy

      Thanks. She is working as a crisis administrator in a hospital setting, so starting this week she is working swing shift. Because there’s such a shortage of trauma therapists with masters degrees, her job pulled her from therapy to this position, which is i guess better for her but more complicated for us, as we have to figure out how and where to meet. Because of my past experience with abandonment by my t we are trying to figure something out so i do not have to change to a different t.

      Oh that sounds like it's going to make scheduling challenging... Hang in there Invisible :console:

  5. Hi Invisible1,

    It sounds like you're going thru a pretty rough time... I hope that you can make an appt w your therapist so you can meet with her soon. A month is a long time to go without... I'm hoping that you can talk w her and resolve whatever issues are going on. It is tough to find good caring helpful therapists... But if the issues don't get worked out, or if she keeps ignoring you, then maybe you'll have to look for someone else, or maybe she could recommend another therapist?  Hang in there

      thanks. she texted me back. her wifi was off on her phone so she wasn’t getting  messages. we texted. we are going to meet soon i hope. no date or time yet. but i am hoping something next week. her schedule is changing so it will be difficult for the next few weeks until we get things figured out and she can work us in and also she has an anniversary coming up of her son’s suicide so she’s taking some time off for that. 

      thanks so much for checking on me. i appreciate it. i am having a high pain day. (i fell down the stairs a couple days ago and broke a couple ribs) due to the abuse and recent brain surgeries i now have seizures so balance is an issue. i am in pt an ot. i’ve had 3 brain surgeries this year, hopefully we are good for now. 

      anyways thanks for listening to me.

  6. Hello and welcome to AS. I also live in a town that doesn’t have support groups. I do not drive, and there is not public transport here, so AS is it for me. My T comes to see me. I am glad you found AS! They are so wonderful!
  7. Hi sadandworried, AS is a safe place, I am new too. Welcome!
  8. Hi! I am new too. I have found this site a wonderful and supportive place. Welcome JoniA!
  9. Thank you For the welcome, Mary. I have DID as a result of the abuse. Who wouldn’t right? My mind did what it needed to do to survive, created more of me to cope with the men. Is there a poetry forum?
  10. Thank you for the kind welcomes.
  11. Hello I would like to introduce myself. I recently started therapy for past abuse by my father and uncle. I am a survivor of child prostitution, or whatever it is called. Trafficking. I was sold and used and trained by my father and uncle from a young age. My question to you all is, how do you keep going? I am being flooded with memories, I have complex PTSD. Im not sure it’s worth fighting through most days. Theyre both dead now, so can’t hurt me now, which is cool. I have a husband and children who love me unconditionally. I’m so thankful for that. They are what is keeping me fighting.
