Dear diio: 

Welcome to After Silence!!

I'm sorry for what you have been through.  I find it is easier to talk on forums then out loud.  Being here has helped me so much, even from the first time I ever posted.  It is still helping me - I have so much support here and I know you will, as well.  Here at AS, we are like a big family and our members are kind and non-judgemental.:hug:

I am sending you lots of safe hugs! 

Take care!

Thank you @2Siamese

I’m still struggling with the belief that my life will ever be anymore than it is right now.  My hope is that I can heal.  At least somewhat. 

Thanks for the welcome.

Hi @DiiO

Those feelings are absolutely real.  I'd like to lend you a bit of hope and support!  My little "Sis" struggles with what we chose to call despair.  I asked her if she would be interested in tracking her overall day-to-day emotions with either a grading system of 1-3 or app.  "1" being an overall crud day with "3" being the top end... after gathering data over time were able to find a trend.  This alleviated a ton of pressure to the point she is having more "2" days than not.  Middle ground is simply okay.

Would something like this help you see progress?  It's pretty easy.

Thanks and "keep going!  I'll cheer you on!"
