Hello, this is my first time on a site like this. For the past 3 days I have been dealing with some emotions that happened when I was 19, (I'm 26 now)

I'm so confused on a lot of things, I don't know if this is the place I should post my story or not. I was told by my therapist to find some support groups and that they can be helpful. 

Just call me Reiina. It's nice to meet you all.

I am glad to meet you but I am sorry for what has brought you here.

As far as this being the place to post your story, only you can figure that out. That being said, I am new here but I suspect this will be a good place for me(if/when I decide to tell my story).

Be kind and gentle with yourself.

Hi Reinna,

Welcome to AS. I am very sorry that you have suffered trauma, but you have found a very supportive site. We have forums within this site for various types of trauma related issues, and when and if you are ready (and after 10 post minimum) you can post in our Share Your Story forum. But take your time, there is no rush for anything. Just look around and get a feel for the place. You are not alone. I am glad you have found our site and wish you well as you start this journey of healing.

Mary

Hello Reiina, how are you today? I'm sorry you are having a difficult time. What helps?

Emotions can be very unpleasant and intense sometimes. They pass. In the mean time, how can you take care of yourself? There is an approach I found very helpful: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. It teaches me how to sit with emotions knowing that they don't stay for ever. There is a lot of information on the net. Have a look and see what you think.

Lately I have been colouring and it helps. Do you colour?
