After 8 Years, Trying To Get It Right

Recommended Posts

I'm new here and new to talking about my experiences. I'm really struggling and can't really talk to anyone I know (I started therapy last week). After 8 years for pretending nothing happened I'm overwhelmed by how intense and fresh my feelings of fear, isolation, and self loathing are.

I don't know if I'll feel better but I'm hoping that realizing that I'm not alone will be the first step in the right direction.

Thanks for listening.

Hi Nikobee,

You definitely are not alone in this. I'm new to this site, too.. but you've already taken the first step in the right direction!

Hi Nikobee,

Welcome to AS. I am very sorry for the trauma you have suffered, but you have found a very supportive site. You are not alone, as many of us have tried to pretend and deny things have ever happened. I found them to be a temporary fix, because the emotions do tend to boil up when you least expect them to. You are taking a huge step by reaching out, and I am glad you recognize that. I wish you the best on your healing journey.

Mary
