  1. Welcome to AS, Clementine. (I love the name!) I'm glad you found your way here, though I'm terribly sorry for what you've experienced. It was undeserved and not your fault. And now for your therapist to be leaving is a real shame. I absolutely know what you mean about finding affordable mental healthcare...I'm sure most of us do. I wish you all the best. I hope you don't have to be on the waitlist for long. In the meantime, I hope that you are able to find solace here in our community. You'll meet a lot of very friendly and supportive people. You're not alone!! ❤️ -Finchy

  8. Hello and welcome to AS, @Lazy Duck!! I'm glad you found your way here. I'm sorry for what you've been through, though. It was not your fault, and it was undeserved.

  14. Hello @cryinginside! Welcome to AS. I'm glad you found your way here, though I'm terribly sorry for what you've experienced. I'm so sorry for how you're feeling. It's definitely common among survivors to have flashbacks and to feel so helpless...but you're in the right place. You're not alone anymore, and you DO have help! We're here for you. Do you have a therapist? I highly suggest finding a trauma-informed therapist if you don't already have one, too. I have been helped so much by my T. Wishing you well. Best wishes, cryinginside. -Finchy

I hope that you find some peace and healing here in the community. ❤️ You'll find a lot of very friendly and supportive people here. Best wishes! -Finchy

      Thank you @Doll6. I'm really a mess tonight. I mean, I almost cried just trying to scoop ice cream. Like so frustrated, so weak feeling...in life, in general...that having trouble scooping ice cream put me over the edge (nearly).

      I’m sorry you feel so fragile @Finchy. Please try and be gentle with yourself. I assume this time of year is tough for you with your family too 😔

      @Doll6 Thank you. Fragile is the right word. I'm doing my best. *hugs* I love Christmas...always have...but any time my brother is around more is very stressful and hard, yes. He'll have days off for the holiday, so I'll have to see him more. Not looking forward to that. Christmas is a mix of emotions.
