Hi, Toni. This group has helped me a lot this past year, and I hope you find comfort and encouragement here as well. I have learned the hard way that this sort of trauma most people just don't "get"or don't want to understand or they expect you to be "over" it in short order, and life just doesn't work that way.
I've "only" been dealing with this for a little over a year now, and I still find it surreal. This stuff hurts us to our cores, and it can be a long and winding path down that survival road. I really do have to keep telling myself "one day at a time." Sometimes one hour at a time or one moment...I'm glad you are in therapy. I personally don't think I could have come this far without it. This is a wonderful group here. Welcome.
