Hello!

11 posts in this topic

Hi all! I've been lurking all week, and I finally registered on Wednesday. I've tried to post on Wednesday and Thursday, and nothing ever seemed to come out right. I even tried saving two of the posts in case I wanted to work on them and post them. So here I am...giving it another try.

I'm 30 years old, and I've never been married and don't have any kids. I live alone, and I'm currently in a clinical psych grad school program (just started last month). My abuse occurred when I was a child (ages 5-9), and I've been dealing with it off and on (probaly more off than on) for the past 20 years. I seem to do okay for a while, and then *boom*, every 2 or 3 years, I lose it again. So here I am--lost it again. I guess I can only pretend that it doesn't effect me for so long--especially when I know that it is. I've started therapy, and I'm hoping (promising myself) that this time, I'm going to stick with it--even when things start to look up and feel better for me.

So that's me. I hope everyone has having a great Friday!

Take care,

Katie

Welcome Katie :)

I am glad you decided to join. I hope you will find the support you are looking for here....I know I have. I totally understand the on again/off again strategy of healing :unsure: .

Please feel free to jump in and add to the posts if you would like to and also post any topic of your own. People here are good about replying because chances are that no matter what you are going through, there is probably at least one person who has been there or knows someone who has.

Take care.

Welcome! :dance:

The best thing to do hon, is really just to talk about it. Therapy is definitely a plus. I'm really sorry for what happened to you. I hope you can find some comfort here.

Thanks for the welcome, y'all. I really appreciate it. It's been a rough month for me to say the least, but I actually did make it through yesterday without crying. :) Today, I had to read a chapter about PTSD for my general psychopathology class which was not easy. Good thing I am in therapy, though. Again, thank you for the kindness. I look forward to getting to know all you.

Take care,

Katie
