  1. Thanks everyone. I appreciate the support.
  2. Hello! I joined this forum several years ago in the really intense part of my therapy work. It was such a supportive community then. And then went on and had some life experiences, got married and started a family. I had been working on my stuff on my own with an occasional check in session. I also began being more open with some of my trauma history and speaking out. More recently, I started regular sessions again with my old therapist as I’m learning I still have these trauma responses and it’s frustrating me. So here I am, back to where I found support before to see if it might help a
  3. Hi everyone. Okay, so I'm not totally new, I've just been gone for awhile, in and out of treatment. But I'm back now because this site has always been really helpful in times of need. And I'm really struggling again, with ptsd, depression, an eating disorder and all that. Just need a little more support than I have now. And I hope I can help support others too. Take good care Broken

  5. i just spent 72 bucks at Kohls ona few shirts for myself. Something I haven't done in awhile. Nothing like retail therapy to start your day off.

  9. hello again becky lynn! welcome again to AS. i hope you're finding lots of support here.
  10. i took the day off work to do some self-care for once. and then i called my T when i ended up hiding all day instead of self-caring because i was hurting so much. then i took a 3 hour nap and felt a little better.
  11. Hi and Welcome to AS. i'm not sure if I can offer any words of wisdom right now. i joined in august but left for awhile after my last rape happened 3 months ago and i'm having a hard time with it too. But know that you are not alone and it was NOT your fault. I hope you will be able to find love, care, and support here at AS. PM me to talk anytime. sending safe hugs - if okay
  12. my inner child is a little girl, about 8 or 9, and in a dark room hiding because she is sad and scared. she's afraid of what people will do to her or say to her....how and when they're going to hurt her. the only time she can come out....really come out which is through me, is when i'm by herself or with my therapist. and slowly i'm learning ways to take care of her and listen to her and help her find her voice.
  13. hi. i'm new here too. i've been having a hard time with things for a few weeks and thought it might help to talk with other survivors too. my t suggested it a few months ago but i didn't think i was ready then. i'm still not really sure about it but i think it's time to at least take one step forward.
