    Wow thank you so much. That’s amazing you read so much. My concentration is so poor since having a relapse with the ptsd and anxiety this year. I usually read a book a month but now I’ve not read a book all year. I really want to get back into it but I keep getting a pile of books out and...

    I’m changing my name.

    Wow, well done to you. I’m sorry your mum reacted like that. I’ve not told my mum. We have very little contact but we text sometimes on Facebook messenger. She must see my name change there but she’s never asked and I’ve never told her. She would get upset and I don’t want to upset her despite...

    Have you found any books that have helped during your healing? I did therapy for many years after my brother assaulted me 8 years ago. I haven’t done therapy now for a few years despite having a relapse due to being diagnosed with chronic health problems. I have chronic fatigue syndrome/ME...

    Housebound. Anyone else?

    I apologise if this gets long. I was sexually assaulted in 2008, which I buried as I was told I’d cheated on my husband blind drunk, not that it was rape so I buried it and didn’t deal with it. I’ve posted about this before. I kept going and put it out of my mind. Then in 2012 I’d lost my...

    I’m changing my name.

    I finally opened it. Wish I could attach a photo here to show you. Luna-Lily is such a cute name. I’m happy to be called just Luna if it’s too much of a mouthful lol. My nickname weirdly is Jing/Jingy since high school. I had shoes that jingle jangled as I walked, my friends made a song up...

    I’m changing my name.

    Thank you, wise words. Here I am feeling guilty towards my Mum for changing it despite the fact she’s not been in my life for years other than recently we text now and again, just a hello, how are you? Etc that’s it. She’s still never said sorry for abandoning me when my brother assaulted me...

    Self help during recovery

    I can relate. I’d see each time I went out as a huge victory. Last year I went out a few times and was so proud and so were my family. It’s just so frustrating I overcame the anxiety, agoraphobia etc but since my health issues the anxiety issues returned and my social anxiety became worse than...

I have social anxiety and don’t socialise with anyone but my husband and children. I had therapy initially...

    Panic and general anxiety is back

    2 years ago I had major 12 hour panic attacks daily for a year, constant anxiety etc it was awful. Last year I improved massively. I hadn’t had panic in months, they’d become that rare but this last week or 2 my panics have returned. Not sky high for 12 hours but they’ll be an hour or so then...
