a little kindness goes a long long way. especially immediately following the trauma. it makes me glad to hear how you handled yourself in this horrible situation. you didn't crack and you shared your strength and compassion.

Not sure what the job situation is, but sounded like you handled it well. Hope the harassment of yourself you mentioned isn't something that is ongoing. That sounds troubling to deal with.

Hey guys. Working at my job and had someone come in with wounds on face and body and divulged he was raped. Some of his conduct was strange but at least I treated him respectfully. He wanted to shower, and I encouraged him not to. He was unsure a

Hi Lostc, If you feel abused, you were abused. It's not about the other person's intentions, or about what others think or say. It's about the effect your life experience had on you. Don't let your life be contingent on what others think or say.

Billions of dollars are spent by Madison Avenue brainwashing the world that sexual appeal is the most important thing in the world. That primary manipulation is then translated to cars, watches, clothes, shoes, locations, vacations... Why would you

Hi NSM, I completely echo the sentiments of Jude's post. Before I read Jude's post, I had a two word post for you to consider--enabling, Al-Anon. Your presence in the system actually supports and feeds the system, and weakens you. You were raised

NSM, I grew up with two alcoholic parents, and became one myself. I can tell you that you cannot have a healthy relationship with an active alcoholic. And you can't save them. Until and unless your mother is willing to seek sobriety for herself, you
