I woke up this morning feeling unloved, unwanted, a burden, forgotten, left behind, overall just shitty. I am going to bed tonight feeling accepted and cared for and in control of my own healing. I know I will feel the first way again, but its good

Hi Babypink, Wow. Yes, I understand the tired. Regarding varied addictions, for me, being sober is about surrendering - I already lost the fight many times over. But, maybe the conquering aspect works with the way you've done it. During my proces

Thanks for sharing your experience. Just want to echo that it is important to find others who get it if you are able. Then, after time, it can be something you may or may choose not to share with others in your life. At least, that's my experience.

Wow, you're off to a great start. I think it's an excellent first post. Good for you - just let it all out, there's too much toxic shit to keep bottled up inside. Sadly, you've got all the emotional baggage that goes with CSA. And you've come to th

Bravo, and well done Marc. A picture is indeed worth a thousand words. And these pictures were certainly speaking to me. They seemed to by-pass the intellect, and go directly to my emotional core. Thanks for sharing a part of your very being.

Hi Betrayed Boy and welcome. Your intro title reminds me so much of my own. This is a great place to drop the secrecy and shame. I am not the same person I was when I joined.

You have such a gentle heart. It just comes through in that last post. Be true to it and you won't go wrong. Ultimately, you must do what that heart is hinting for you to do, not what we tell you it should do.

Indeed, many mental illnesses can be traced back to some sort of childhood trauma. HOWEVER, treatment can and does work. Recovery is real. Many people never take that first step you did not too long ago, many others fall into addiction or behavior
