Hi, I think I’m here because after so many years of suppressing and cutting ties with this person, they were forced back into my life out of my control. I spiraled a little and  because I feel like I lost ‘control’ of the situation it’s surfaced so many emotions that’s now affecting my marriage. Just kinda wanna shut down and hope it all goes away but it doesn’t work like that. I know it’s time to see a counselor but I found this first, so here I am. Not sure what I want out of this but I felt like I wanted to post and be apart of it! I feel like my situation is nothing compared to some of yours but also I’ve been able to tell my mind it’s nothing to make it go away, I have work to do! 
Thanks for listening.

Welcome @caitlyn. to After Silence.  I’m sorry for what brought you here but I’m happy you are here reaching out for support.  Good job taking this step in your healing process.  You are not alone and what happened to you wasn’t your fault.  Take your time exploring and post when you are ready.

I hope when you get to counseling you find it helpful.  My situation was not as bad as some but my abuse still affects me.  Your feelings are valid and you are welcome here regardless.

Hi Caitlin,

I can very much relate. I felt like I had made such progress but lately I've had so much anxiety because I feel like another trauma is just around the corner. I just joined this group and am hoping connecting to others will help.
