You should be proud of yourself! I remember walking around for a week before getting my med filled at the drug store. I had taken been taking with a therapist and the meds help me cope with sll the things I was unloading. It was enpowering to help myself. Good luck! \:\)

Marc
isn't it a wonderful feeling when the person you tell doesn't recoil in horror ?
And it's gets better Marc, every time you tell it the 'secret' gets less.

I'm proud of you !

A really wise step Marc. Feelings can jump all over the place, but at least here we all understand and can support you in the bad and the good.

Peace!

POSSIBLE TRIGGER
Marc,

I know I'm posting this rather late, but oh, well, better late than never. Telling another person face to face is an enormously difficult thing to do(or at least it was for me), although it was inevitable in my case. I experienced a flashback during a session with my therapist when we were talking about something else :rolleyes: ! I found that once the secret was out(and I didn't even know it was there) that the poison began to drain.

Good for you, Marc. Let the healing begin.

Tom

Marc; Well here I am again late as usual. Wow. It is out. The dirty little secret of your Perp. And the P said. Marc I believe you. Sure you got emotional. Three things happened Marc.
1. He listened 2.He believed and 3. In his mind you are a strong man that needs help and is setting about doing it the right way.

It is like lancing a boil Marc. No more hiding for the perps.

God I am so proud of you and so very happy you did come back.

I am also glad that you thought of the rope as a life line. That means so much to all of us here. It is called trust and to be trusted his food for the soul
