I'm new to the forum, unfortunately not to the subject matter.
I wasn't going to post so soon but that changed after I spent some time reading threads. I was touched not only because I could relate to the traumas the other members went through (and are going through now), but also because the posts put words to some of the feelings and emotions that I am not strong enough to face or comprehend yet.
It finally feels like some one understands. Somebody "gets it" even if I don't understand my own emotions and reactions. Knowing I'm not alone and I can turn here until my own voice becomes audible was so comforting that I began to cry in a, well, cathartic state.
I am so glad and thankful for everyone here. I've just begun my journey and I know it will be far from easy, but knowing I'm not alone anymore made everything a little better.
