Not Sure Whether I Am Posting In The Right Place As Am Very New

Recommended Posts

Just a note to say hello and check that I am not doing things wrong here! I am 50 years old and live in the UK and am just trying to make sense of many things that happened many years ago. Some of which I already knew and never really dealt with properly and others that I blanked out and my mind, for whatever reason, has decided I am now to remember.

I hope everyone that has the unfortunate need to be here, finds their peace and healing

Welcome to AS lilacfairy!

I am also 50 years old and just like you, I blocked out things for decades only to have it all come flooding back a couple of years ago. This is a very supportive forum and there are many people who understand what you are going through. I hope you also find some peace an healing here.

:aswelcomesu::youcanheal::notalone::bighug: if OK, sorry for the reason that brought you here

I am 68 and until recently blocked it all out from my childhood, only now remembering tiny bits, this dissociation

extended to my marriage as well. I am from the UK but now live in France for the past 25 years

Thank you so much Astro29 and Reglois for replying to me! It means such a lot to know there is someone out there who understands. I went to counselling today only to find she wasn't there. I really psyched myself up to at least attempt to speak about some of the things that are SO impossible to speak about. I cried all the way home and now feel like things are conspiring to actually ensure I keep silent. My logic tells me one thing but sadly, my logic doesn't always win.

I wish you healing, hope and happiness

I don;t actually want to remember! What is my mind playing at?? All I can do now is remember. so many details but yet I have just watched my 5 year old son's assembly and cried and clapped at the same time. I must be one of the most selfish women on earth.

Welcome to AS, lilacfairy. I am sorry you have a reason to be here and that memories are starting to surface that you just wish you stuff back away... I know how that goes. You are not alone!

I hope you find the peace and healing from your past that you deserve.
