I am constantly looking for places that provide support because I deal with Complex-PTSD. All of you that struggle with this will know all too well what it is like. I have been recently going on about my second month on therapy. The last time I saw a therapist is when I was 16 and she was not any help. She told everything that I would share with her so I never spoke with her again. A big portion of my life and yes while growing up from a toddler until I reach my early teens. In my teens I started to get more vocal so my abuser decided to discard me. Anywho Ill share more on this later on. 

 

         I am 34 years old, I live in Texas and have been here for 16 years. I originated in Texarkana, TX. I was adopted by my mom's brother and his wife. They both had 2 boys but was not biologically my uncles children. I didnt get to know much about the place where I was born only because at the age of 4 we all moved to Louisiana. I grew up there until I turned 13 and then I was given the decision to go back to my biological mother. I never saw any of them again. The story of course goes alot deeper than that and I will be writing more on the subject here. It doesnt hurt anymore to talk about my past but my emotion does like to wonder a bit. This is all Ill begin with here thank you for accepting me. Happy recovery everyone. I plan to rise as high as I can and be better than ever.

 

Love Jean

Thank you everyone, I am glad to have found this place too. Thank you for the kind words and the encouragement. For me to allow anyone to understand my story I write most of it in poetry so Ill share those too. Im taking a writers class to help me polish my writing skills. Maybe writing here can help me put this book together. Thank you hugs.

Beautiful photography! I'm new here but am so encouraged by all the people here who've had horrible things happen to them, but don't let it define them. I think people who search for help regarding their trauma are determined to not let it rule their life, so good for you for being here! You are among friends
