Hello. I just stumbled upon this forum. I hope I’m following all the rules here in my first post. It’s been about a month since my trauma and now that the shock wore off I’m no longer in denial and hurting pretty badly. I’m hoping to talk to councilor this week at a crisis center and maybe find a therapist via my dr tomorrow. I’m glad I found these forums though. 
So I’m a single mama to a beautiful little girl. I have some great friends and family but at the moment feel completely alone. Look forward to talking with some of you.

Welcome @Kitcatjane83! I'm new here myself. There's so much content it can be overwhelming. I tend to log in every day or two and just read. Simply belonging to a community of people who share similar experiences and emotions has really helped me not feel so alone and hope that becomes the case for you as well! I hope you find validation and support here.

How old is your little girl?
