  1. Thank you all for your kind, welcoming and supportive words. They make my heart happy. It means so much not to be alone.
  2. I have recently joined this forum as the next step in my healing journey. I have been encouraged by the posts I have read so far and the unconditional support that is offered. It is such a beautiful thing. I have lived for as long as I can remember in fear, with feelings of deep shame and unworthiness. For a long time, I was certain there was something wrong with me and there was little if anything I could do about it. Now I have recently been able to acknowledge the severe trauma I suffered in my past so that I can work through it. So much in my past makes sense as I am seeing the truth instead of all the lies that were told over and over again. Acknowledging the truth has been such a very difficult thing for me to do instead of pretending that everything is okay, which I did for so many years. But also it is the beginning of healing. My T recommended joining a support group as I have greatly desired additional support and understanding. I do have some helpful support in my life but most individuals just do not understand the extent of my pain nor the many facets of the damage done and the amount of healing needed. I am looking forward to interacting more with you by giving and receiving support. I know I desperately need it! ~ Hope
