Hi @Mimity

Welcome to As, though I am truly sorry for the trauma that brought you here. This is a safe place full of caring people who have been through some stuff that may be similar though may not be the same. I know it’s scary to join a site like this and I too was nervous when I joined wasn’t sure anything would help. It took real courage for you to do that and I know you can get to that happy place.  The road there is hard, but you can do this. Your here, do you have someone that you can talk to like a therapist or a counselor in the real world?

I do not have anymore who wants to hear my story.. They say it's to hard to hear. How do they think I feel having lived it.

Sorry to hear nobody wants to listen.  Once you have 10 posts you will have access to a forum called share your story where you can share there.  An easy way to get a few extra posts is to post in the amusement alcove or humor and silliness forums.

Hello Mimity, how are you? I'm sorry about what brought you to this group. It was not your fault. 

It is normal to feel the way you are feeling at present. Abuse has a huge impact.

I wonder if you have a counsellor to help you with the emotional pian and the images. I hope this group will be helpful for you. 

I do have a happy place in my mind and a real one in the forest. I have learnt to close my eyes and go to a beautiful happy place where I feel safe. It takes time to get the place you like. You can also draw it. 

Take care.
