yep.And that is so isolating.
T tells me all the time that one of my biggest challenges with sharing anything about my past is that I know it will upset whoever I'm talking to because they won't be able to handle it and they will fall apart. Then I'll end up taking care of them.
I already have that experience just from my 911 calls. So how in the world do I tell them about anything from my personal life? it's just another reason I'm so very, very grateful for this place. I honestly don't think I would have ever told anyone, even my t, about the torture part if I hadn't been with the people here who made it possible.
oh ya - and bout those articles. Totally get what you mean - I hate when I realize that I'm the person they are describing. I don't think that will ever get easier.
