Oh Debbie, I am so sorry!!! I thought it was your uncle? Your step father did what? Did he take advantage of you? Oh you poor girl!!! I suppose that is why you feel the way you do? And, I suppose your family thought you was lying, am I right? Making things up? Trying to get him in trouble? No one ever thought it might be true, so they tell you over and over that it is all in your head, you made it up?! Am I close???
Wow, you have had a very rough life, I'm sorry! At least you are here, talking about it, that is a good thing!!! Get it out of your head, then it will get out of your soul! Keep this up, and I hope, I really hope, you can get your life back together?!
We are going to help you, Deb, I promise you, we will find a way to get this out of your soul!!! I hope Dr. Leslie can help you get it out of your head?! Just know this, we are here for you, anytime you need us, ok???
I want you to have an excellent night, and sweet dreams tonight, ok?! See you tomorrow, ok?!
First of all, I want to offer my humble and respectful congratulations for all you have done. You have survived a lot. From what you have said, you have tried really hard and continue to work hard to overcome this. I honor that. I just wanted to let you know that if I offer suggestions it's in the hope that maybe I can think of something that you could try that might be different than what you have done before.
It's not because don't think you are trying that I try to offer help. If you hadn't tried, I wouldn't care and I'd ignore you. It's because I see you have tried, I hear what you say and respect what you have been through, and because I respect that you haven't given up.
When people feel really upset, it can be easy to also get sucked into feeling that nothing has helped and no one cares. And when this happens, people are often helped by reminding themselves of the things they have done that have helped them - even if just a little bit - and by also thinking about the people who have shown them some caring. Maybe this can help you?
