While I'm still new to this community, there's something that's been on my mind a lot as of late that I feel many of you may have experience with. What it comes down to, now that I'm starting to work though this, is that I'm terrified of the future. It's to the point this week after a particularly bad triggering event where I'm practically not functioning.

Maybe it's because for the first time in my life I feel the future is uncertain; that I'm not destined for a predetermined path. Whatever the reason, I'm simply terrified; terrified that I won't get past this, that I may never be the functioning, thriving, happy person I hope and, really, deserve, one day to become

Now I know I have to be patient with myself, to take things a day at a time. I just can't help but feel overwhelmed by the enormity of what's happened, and what has yet to happen. Do any of you guys ever deal with these sort of thoughts? If so, how do you cope and keep yourselves going and do what you need to do to get by?
