  1. You’re an amazing woman. Thank you so much for being the light in the darkness

      They are super kind words DakotaSun. I am not sure that I deserve them, but if I can help anyone in just a little way that makes me happy. ☀️ 🐿️ 🧡

  2. Shame.

    Everyone has it.

    No-one wants to talk about it.

    But the less we talk about it,

    the more we have it.

  3. @Empty Tears Hi saoirse, wecome to After Silence. Im sorry for what you have been through and that you have reason to be here. Here you are not alone it is a safe and understanding place. Take your time to look around the site and talk to people. You have been so brave in joining and making your first post, I hope being here helps you on your healing journey. B ❤
  4. @girlsnz Im so pleased your T session went well, its really positive that you are managing to ground from your flashbacks better, but it is still very hard to be having them continuously and to be recieving new memories through them. Im sorry that you feel you should be further along in your healing, it makes sense that this could only be done when your everyday life was less chaotic. I think the same has happened to me. Keep fighting to heal Girlsnz, we are here for you. B ❤

      Exactly! 😁

  6. Im so glad you reached out and she responded. Well done youb for being so brave. I hope that your session on saturday goes well. Ill pocket ride for extra support if you would like? B
  7. Im sorry that your struggling so much right now. I can relate to this inner battle and the thoughts that battle each other with their different perspectives. I wait for the day one will speak forever louder than the other and makes the other fade. Sitting with you if you would like? ❤ B
  8. I too can relate to telling people over and over and nobody hearing. The sad thing is the reaction of professionals that I have had to tell as an adult is why didnt you say anything!?!
  9. Im glad that journaling helps you so much and that you can read it to your therapist when you need to. I too struggle to ask for extra support when I need it, I dont want to seem needy - a learned response from my childhood is I must not need or want anything, I must not bother anyone. But like you said she can only say no and really she just wants to help and support you so if she can she will. Our therapists are not our parents and will not think or respond like them.
  10. Im so sorry for what you went through Girlsnz. And that it is coming back to you like this over time. I hope your therapist can talk with you earlier, your right there is no harm at all in asking. You have been so very brave in sharing your memory here I hope you can verbalise it as well when you need to with your therapist and that speaking out is helpful for your processing. Sitting with you if you would like? B ❤
  11. Sitting with you @RubyRosie You have been so brave in sharing. I hope you find sharing helpful. ❤ B
  12. Hi @madeline_h welcome Im sorry for what brings you here, but im glad you have found the site and I hope being here helps you on your healing journey.
  13. Just like Alice, I go into the hatch to safety. Its not big enough for you to come after me. Im safe here 😔

      Thank you for your support @Free2Fly, I feel safer than ive been in ages. I feel more in control and able to get away from him in my constant flashbacks and nightmares.

      I'm glad you can feel safer, hopefully it gets to a point where you don't have flashbacks and nightmares anymore.

      Zoloft hasn't given me any side effects necessarily either. This might not be a good choice, but I cam considering weaning them off. I have been on them for over a year and I dont think its helped. However I am only speaking for myself. I encourage you to see how it works for you and determine if its right. And that takes time

      Thank you Fieldy I had a more positive night after being given a coping strategy for nightmares and flashbacks in therapy that actually helped me, maybe this is my way back. I hope so.
