    Trying to understand why I'm doing this

    Good evening everyone. Feeling lost because I canceled my trip back home to see my family. I usually make room for one trip, every year, so that I can get to see my family and old friends. I moved away back in 2011, living back there made me really sick. But I couldnt do it this time, a friend...

    Long time no see! Feeling hopeful first time in years

    Havent been active on here as much lately, due to my recent fragility (getting very easily triggered by stuff) Good news is I'm finally getting trauma focused therapy, and my new T is an actual gem. Going private is expensive though, but I actually get something out of each session, and this...

    growing up without a spine, so how do I get one?

    So, essentially, I grew up without a spine, my mom would emotionally and physically abuse me, and blame me for a lot of nonsensical stuff. And that snowballed down the line, being an empath and a people pleaser is the worst life decision that I've made, and you could probably blame half of my...

    Undiagnosed Autist with Bipolar II and ADHD looking to figure out some stuff, so thanks for having me <3

    Hey so, I found this place looking around google, I'm here to connect with people like me, since I don't really relate to people already in my life. For context, I do not have a official ptsd diagnosis, but there's been some speculation from my mom's side, considering my brother has it. Either...
