  1. This is horrible. I have a wicked stepmonster of my own, but fortunately I lost contact with her as I disowned my dad when I was 13... Her asking for a divorce minutes after getting the house signed over... very very wicked and I am sure there has be some legal safety against such plotting. Also, that document doesn't sound legal either. It should be a whole process... Anyhow, I am sorry she's so wicked and I am sorry you're living situation is shaky now. What a b*tch.
  2. Pretty productive day. I had a work interview for the summer and de-cluttered my room for hours. 

    I will work a 2 weeks trying out the job in June. It's at an hotel abroad.

This is a very good place to get some extra support, as this site is quite active and you have many forums to choose from. What you are describing about connections and support is pretty much how I describe this site. A place to find contact with fellow survivors and sense a community. We exchange healthy coping tactics, experiences and support. All within the pace you'd prefer, you share what you feel comfortable to. Wishing you well too! You can contact me or any staff by choice through PM with quest
  4. Hello and welcome here, I am Wanna Good thing you came back here, it indeed sounds like you could use all support you can get. I am proud of you for seeking help so soon after what happened, and standing up for yourself by using your voice. I hope you are safe from that bf and have people who can look after you. You decide your own pace here, when you want to share and what. Just know we are here for you, and we believe you. I am sorry about all of your traumas, that should never have happened. But this community is here to unload your burden, helping you to find healthy coping.
  5. Welcome on board here! I am Wanna Not all survivors know what happened right after, especially since society provides a rather stereotypical images of how RA/SA happens. When someone we trusted hurts us that deep, we'd rather not believe it. It's a common coping mechanism, often ending up in us blaming ourselves. The thing with consent is, that it doesn't leave question marks. Consent doesn't leave us traumatized. It can take years and even another person telling us, before we realize that what occurred was out of our control. This is a safe place for you to heal together wit

  7. Hello and welcome here, I am Wanna This is a safe place, where you take things at your own pace. Opening up can be very hard, I know.

      I hope you feel better! I'm sick, too. Soup from scratch sounds so good right now! And toast! Yum!

  9. I got my grade back for one of my classes. I passed everything except one paper. My teacher has left me with instructions and I'll admit a new version in December. I did get the highest grade for some of my other assignments.

      Wow, well, that is one really cool thing about Sweden. It's definitely not like that here in the US! If you fail, you fail.

      @Finchy I believe universities should offer re-exams. I know Sweden is very generous on that point.

      I like how Sweden does it.  Higher education can be expensive too.  

      It may depend on the source of training, i.e. a cosmetology or massage exam can be taken again.  

      Yay Sweden (my ancestor's are Dutch and Norwegian :)
