I'm glad that you found what I wrote helpful. I know you have been through a lot and struggle a lot in your life. All I can say is keep up the work. Stay in therapy. Keep talking openly with your therapist to keep the process moving forward. Learning to understand, love, and have compassion for yourself can help immensely. Feeling cared about - even if only by your therapist- can also help immensely. I wish you well.
