Not New To Healing, But New To Here


Recommended Posts

Hello, everyone!

I'm so glad I found this place - all the other survivor forums were very inactive...

Um, I go by KJ on the internet. I'm 19, and a lover of all things psychology. I love writing, reading and painting.

I used to love performing on a stage, singing and dancing but haven't been able to do that for a while.

I'm diagnosed with depression, anxiety and PTSD. I've been in counseling for a couple of years.

I thought it was time for me to find a safe place for deeper healing and discussion of the deeper issues.

I'm excited to meet everyone and post things and read helpful things.

Hi and welcome to AS! This is a very active forum, thankfully. We have place for you to talk about whatever you want, you don't have to tell your story until you are ready.

It sounds like we have a lot in common! Now only do we have similar hobbies but similar diagnoses. Anyhow I hope to see you around and look forward to getting to know you.:)

Hello KJ

I too am new here. What do you like to read?

I tend to stick with realistic fiction (a la Ellen Hopkins) or mystery (Sammy Keyes)

But LOVE Percy Jackson and Maximum Ride.

Lately, I've been reading abuse surivivor and related books - Toxic Parents by Susan Forward, Will I Ever Be Good Enough: Healing for Daughters of Narcisstic Mothers by Karyl McBride, etc.

I'm so glad to see such an active forum for us <3 These diagnosis suck - I've been able to managed my depression, it's the other two kicking me down right now. I'd love to get to know you as well!

Thank you, Mary! (By the way, that was my grandma's name, and she was a wonderful positive influence in my childhood <3) I'm so excited to get to know people around here. Your sign smiley is also awesome!
