welcome, SayItRight.

yes, this is a community of survivors,
but like any community, it is full of unique individuals with a variety of opinions.
within this diverse spectrum, you will discover the common components and themes.

your history sounds similar to mine.
my problems continued for decades after the abuse.

i have been diagnosed recently with PTSD, although i believe i have been suffering from it since the 1960's.
they have used hypnotherapy as part of the recovery.
everything seems like a crisis or trauma to me.
i seem to function best under those conditions.
