I remember when I joined. I had begun therapy and the nightmares and flashbacks were coming with a vengeance. I was still trying to push the past down. I began to tell my story here and everywhere. I could not understand why I felt beaten when I was supposedly healing. I always had MS 24/7 to vent and seek support. As time moved on and I continued healing MS was still here to support me.

Unfortunately the healing process requires work and facing the pain we buried for decades. Stick with it and you will begin to see a life that is yours and not always overshadowed by the abuse. Share when you feel comfortable and safe. Surround yourself with caring and kind people. Your environment is important as I learned from my T and doctor's. It took time for me to accept.

MS is here and remember our support is not judgmental. It is from a place we can understand and relate.
