  3. When I do therapy homework as a procrastination technique, we know things have hit a new level. 

  4. This is so beautiful!!!
  5. Broke my hand and am all casted up, typing with one hand is very slow. Sorry if my responses to posts are shorter than normal--maybe I'll learn how to be more succinct?

      oh no!  Sorry to hear that.  Hope it heals quickly

      Ouch! So sorry you hurt yourself. I don't have a cast, but I am sometimes writing impaired. This would be the fault of my cat thinking my hand is a seat when I'm typing on my pc. :P 

      Anyways, heal quickly...and I am not so worried about your responses. They may be slower, but you've been a very supportive member of this site!

      OUCHY. I am so sorry. I hope you heal fast!!! :throb:

  6. Ever doubt your life because so many other people have doubted you?

  7. Yay lab work!! I also work in a lab, and people always say "Don't you miss human interaction?" And I reply "I prefer my microscope ;) " Welcome to AS!
  8. I am well-deserving of all the good things today has to offer <3

      A good reminder for all of us.  You deserve good things in your life.

      You absolutely are, @moongoddess - enjoy each and every one of those good things, today, tomorrow and every day!  :throb:

  9. Believing I'll never be good enough and the deep-rooted imposter syndrome due to my past are overwhelming today.

    1. MeBeMary


      Sitting with you. :hug:

    2. Nobody24


      You are good enough, please remember that! Sitting with you :hug:

      Nope you are good enough!!!!!

  10. <3 I wanted to let you know that there is a lot of this I understand, and it totally sucks. I just finished reading "The Apology" by Eve Ensler today, and though it's about father/daughter sexual abuse, it talks a lot about how horrible the emotional/psychological abuse was. It is written from her father's perspective, to Eve. He speaks of breaking her down emotionally. How he made her hate her body, made her believe she was a liar. He explained how she began hiding, but also how she felt the need to exaggerate her words so that she would be believed, all because of his tactics. It honestly goes into more depth about the emotional abuse than the sexual abuse. It may be triggering, but for me it was incredibly validating and healing to read. I recommend it. I think you may be able to relate to a lot of it, even though your situation isn't exactly her story.
  11. Thank you both! @MeBeMary I appreciate your kind words Healing is indeed quite the winding road. I was 14/15 years old when I first discovered this site, and it honestly kept me going through some of my darkest years. Now here I am, safe from what I was then experiencing. It's wild to think about that young girl and I'm grateful to say that things got better. @Capulet Things have gotten much better for me. I moved far away from my abuser and began a healing process I didn't know was possible. Things come up, I live a life with PTSD, and sometimes it's hard to leave my house (okay, that is happening more frequently right now which is why I'm back here), but overall my life has improved. I'm able to see life through a lens of possibility rather than survival. Hope you are well! I totally think I remember your username! Moon
  12. Hi... I was an active member about 10 years ago, but I couldn't tell you what my username was because I honestly don't remember! I've also gotten a new email address since then and have no way of figuring it out. So alas, here I am. Still trudging that road, still figuring things out, but in a *very* different place in my life. Moon
