Another New One

Recommended Posts


I'm a 50 year old grandmother with 3 children and 5 grandchildren with 2 more on the way. I'm coming from another forum (that dealt with a very specific aspect of being a survivor) that was a wonderful support while I needed it.

I've been able to make progress (after 3 years in continueing therapy and 1 yr on that forum) and have found myself moving past those issues and looking for something fresh and new to find further healing.

I live on the northern east coast, love horses, aromatherapy, natural healing, pets of all kind, except spiders, sorry arachnid lovers.

(hm...as I read this I keep hearing the theme song for 'The Dating Game' in my head, lol )

Anyway, I look forward to meeting others here! :flowers:

Hi Sjenna,

Welcome!! :)

I hope you feel at home soon. :flowers:

Hehe, it looks like you won't have any boring weekends anytime soon, with all them grandkids. That's awesome though, very nice indeed. :) It's great to see how much effort you have put into healing from this trauma, and how you are ready to take on new challenges to heal further. Hopefully you will find that here, I'm sure you'll find lots of support. I love horses and pets too, basically I love all animals, including..... spiders as well. :wink: It's no biggie, I won't take any to the board. :)

If you need any help, please let me know, ok? I am more than willing to guide you through or explain stuff to you. It's great to have you with us. :)

:hug: = if ok??

Hi! I'm new here too. Unlike you, this is the first "group". I am new to the whole recovery thing. It's been a little over a month since this happened to me, and I still don't know what to do with this. I hope you continue to heal. Take care!

Hi Sjenna

Its great to have you here. I love horses as well, in fact I work with them. I'm not so sure I'd be able to cope with the kids and grandkids though!!

I hope you find the further healing that you are after here.
