  1. Started meds (Lexapro) and finally feel like I'm on the upward swing!

      That's great!! :) I've found meds to be so incredibly helpful. Best wishes to you!

      Glad things are looking brighter. So deserved! :up:  

  2. I remember being disgusted by the bruises I would find from my neck down the morning after. Usually I was able to hide them with clothes and/or makeup. I still wonder if I had shown them to other girls I lived in the dorms with, if they would've recognized what was happening better than I did at the time

      It's hard to second-guess anything after the fact...for others or ourselves. :( 

      Sitting with you, if ok. :console:

      Thanks, as always. Having a rough day right now

  3. People at work seem impressed with how I'm doing but...I still want to go back to school in my original field. I loved the program I was in, only left because of trauma issues. I feel torn

      A suggestion - follow your heart. ❤️  When the time is right, you'll know.  It's not going to be easy going back, especially given why you left in the first place.  But you are perhaps in a different place now than you were when you left your previous program.  You've come a long way with your healing.  If there's opportunity to kill it the second time around - go for it. 😉  Wishing you all the luck in the world!  - Cap

      The key words I hear you say...I want. I know it's never easy, but if you really want something, work for it. Know you deserve the happiness that will eventually come from it. 

      Sending hugs. :hug:

      Thank you both. I think I suffered a minor meltdown over this this past weekend. I really don't think it's in my best interest to pursue the line of work I'm currently in, but I'll need encouragement moving forward. I feel like I messed up a lot with school, so I'm still apprehensive about trying to go back. I am trying to contact administration at the university to see what can be done, if anything

  4. I've already posted elsewhere, but never got to do a proper intro. Thank you to the admins that helped navigu this site. I've been on and out of talk therapy for the past 3 years, but I've yet to really connect with anyone that really *gets* me. I've lived alone throughout the pandemic, and have no social supports outside of work still
