Hoping to share


Recommended Posts

Hello. I am new to this community and although I am very nervous I am also very hopeful to have found it. I am working with a therapist after battling almost a decade of untreated depression that was sparked by an abusive relationship that began when I was 16. I suppressed my memories and feelings about this for the past 6 years that I have been free of the relationship. It is terrifying to me to even think about speaking of it, but my therapist and I both believe it will help me heal to be able to do so.  Thank you for listening and I hope to be able to share my story soon. Even sharing this feels like a huge relief.

Hi @SassyCass917 welcome to AS. Sorry you have been in an abusive relationship, but glad you made it through and are in a healing phase. You have found a safe supportive place to share and learn from others. My therapist sent me here when I finally told her why I was talking to her, it was really scary joining but totally was worth it. Be proud of your bravery in joining and posting.
