  1. Wahoo, go buddy! I only just came across this thread (a month later) but reading through the suggestions, I wondered if in addition to the subforum for survivors with disabilities, it might be an option to have one for BIPOC survivors too. I'm white myself, but I've noticed one or two members raising issues related to race recently and it struck me how rarely this comes up on the forum. It must be a factor in so many people's experience of abuse and recovery, so I wonder if a dedicated space (free of white folk!) would make more people feel safe to discuss this. I'm probably way too late
  2. Back in my own space at last!

    I'm proud I made it away with friends and I did have some really fun times, but it was an emotional rollercoaster. I missed my bedroom safe haven. It's good to be home.

    I'm having trauma CBT through NHS Talking Therapies at the moment and have the most incredible T. It was almost a 6 month wait, but I'm getting 12 weeks now for free and it's the best experience I've ever had with therapy. I think it is quite hit and miss with NHS therapists, I had standard CBT through them in 2020, when I thought I was just suffering from anxiety, but I didn't build a relationship with the therapist at all. Some of the exercises we did were helpful but overall it felt quite superficial. Local Mind centres also offer free therapy, including ACT and other talking therapie
  5. Had a lovely sat night reconnecting with my cousin, but feeling sad this eve. Too many lovely people are suffering. Humans have got so much wrong 😔

  6. Day 1 of my new job complete! 💪  Super proud of myself, and feeling really positive about the role. Plus my new team are really lovely 😊  Big thanks to my AS friends for all the support getting to this point!

      Congrats on the job and congrats on a good first day. I hope it is a job that you will enjoy for a long time! :yahoo:  

  7. Hi pat I'm so glad you've got to the point you're reaching out for support. So many of us tried to process things alone at first, or stuffed things down for years cos we didn't know how to process it. But I agree with you that it helps hugely knowing you're not alone. This forum is such a source of comfort cos so many people can relate, and even when they don't share a specific experience, there's zero judgement and 100% compassion and support. Have you accessed or considered accessing therapy at all? I'd really recommend seeking support from a trauma therapist if you can. Nothing beats
  8. Feel like I'm getting everything wrong at the moment 😔

      Thanks everyone. Just feeling like I'm pushing people away at the moment, when what I wanted to do was be closer

  12. Hi @TickerTape Out of your comfort zone is a very normal way to feel on arrival here, but whatever happened to you, you've found the right place for support. I'm sorry that you have experienced trauma but well done for taking a brave step in your healing journey. There's no pressure to share until you feel ready, but please know you are deserving of support.
  13. Back to work tomorrow after nearly 3 months off. Stressful 😬

      Aw thanks everyone, these messages mean so much! Today was quite intense as was straight into meetings about an upcoming restructure. Feeling exhausted and low this evening, but tomorrow should be a little easier.

      Good on you for getting through!

  14. Emotionally drained right now. Keep shuddering as if I'm gonna cry, or as if I've been crying, but I can't cry!! 😫

      Oh noes. I'm sorry, Pink. :( I hope this passes. Just rest and take gentle care of yourself. You are so strong. ❤️ Sending you support and love.

      Thanks buddy, I think I overdid it a bit last week. Socialising takes so much out of me atm.

    3. mini.finch

      mini.finch

      Totally understandable, buddy dear. I don't do well with socializing either. It's a big drain emotionally. Don't socialize for a while...just take care of yourself. ❤️ 

  15. Having one of those emotional constipation days. Wish I could connect and get it out :(
