Hello all. smile.gif My name is Daniela. I found this site because of a good friend who knows I am struggling with memories and other issues coming from my abusive childhood/adolescence. I am going through a really tough time. Every day I wake up wondering if today is the day I'm going to end up in a hospital psych ward. blink.gif They say reaching out to people and talking about my experience is supposed to help. I go to a lot of recovery/support meetings and now I'm trying this, the online support scene. I really like what I have seen on this site and am glad my friend told me about it.

I think you stumbled on the right place, I haven't been posting much lately but I've always found support and freedom of expression here, the family is wonderful and has provided friendship and opinions that widened my field of options in terms of acquiring tools to handle various situation.
