Hello! Thanks for having me

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I'm Khake (pronounced like cake), and I'm 24 years old. 

I recently started trauma therapy as a general tool for help, and I went in wondering what kind of trauma I really had. I grew up with a laundry list of problems...depression, anxiety, SI, isolation, etc. But I had a good home life, so it couldn't have been anything family related. 

Well, we explored some hazy but odd memories of a school teacher from when I was 10. Turns out, with the help of EMDR, I remembered more details and found out I endured CSA from my teacher. 

I'm still in the EMDR process and I'm kind of scared of what else I might find. My last session we uncovered things that happened to me that fit the US definition of R***. 

Anyway, some happier things about me.

I love drawing, video editing, and language studies. One of my life goals is to become fluent in another language. The language I'm eyeing is Korean. 

I'm currently saving money to study abroad there for a year and take intensive Korean classes. 

By the time I leave for South Korea, I hope to have most of this CSA healed and put behind me....

Hi, @khake - 

Welcome to After Silence! I'm sorry about the things you're uncovering in EMDR. I also do EMDR and I know how hard it is and how overwhelming it can be. I hope that you're able to work through these things with your T and gain additional support here to help you through this difficult time. What happened to you was not okay and was not your fault. Continue to look around the site and post when you feel ready. We are all here to support you :)
