Hello Support Group

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I was looking into support groups in my community my schedule didn't allow me to go for several weeks so I thought I'd check this out. After four years of extreme denial, I only started talking about this in therapy a couple of months ago and It's been really difficult to function in other areas of my life as this comes to the surface.

I appreciate the idea of survivors supporting other survivors. I am in another support group for addiction and I have found the community really helpful.

Thank you all for your willingness to share and support one another.

Hello Aromannamedstatusquo,

Welcome to AS. So sorry for the trauma that you have suffered, but this is a very supportive site with many kind and understanding members. You are not the only one who has tried denial, but it only works temporarily, doesn't it? I wish you well on your healing journey.

Mary

Thank you everyone. I appreciate the warm welcome. Denial has been my life long coping mechanism. Understanding the true nature of what I experienced four years ago has opened up a whole can of worms. treating my anxiety and depression has been nearly impossible so I'm hopeful working through the trauma will ease my symptoms/get me actually feeling like a survivor.
