Hi, guys.

I just wrote something to a friend here and I would like to share it with you all. It is about our process of healing and how healing seems to come in stages. I guess we all experience waves of emotions and states of humour that come and go, that get better and then get bad again, and then better again, and then...

I am coming to believe that what happens (I hope!) is that when things get bad again for us, in terms of the effects of the SA, it doesn't last as long as it used to, and so it is like we are going up a curve of progressive improvements in our process of healing.

You probably remember what I wrote here about a week ago, and how sad I was and how scared I was that I was going down again and that I was going to feel all those negative emotions again. Well, I did feel miserable, and sad, and depressed and anxious and all that, but it did not last that long, perhaps two or three days, and now I am feeling good again. My problems are still here and I am dealing with them, but they are not controling my emotions and ruining my humour anymore. At least not today. ;\)

This is so comforting for me! Does your experience confirm what I just wrote?

I am deeply grateful for having this place to come to and I appreciate your encourgaing and loving words in reply to my recent posts. They nurtured me and help me get through that bad phase.

Raphael

I'm glad you're feeling better. It does go in waves. I'm having a rough week this week, but your words are true. I know the bad times don't last as long, and it does get better. And when I do have a bad time, this is the first place I come in the morning.

You guys are great. Hold onto your good days.
