    Hey

    I'm Chrissy. I recently started counselling for PTSD from CSA and a situation I ended up in as an adult with a group of sexually abusive guys. I had the intake session a couple of weeks back and now I'm on a 16 week waiting list I kind of alternate between feeling grand and that I don't need any of this and feeling like I can't wait that long before I start getting over it.

    I hope you guys are all having a good day today! Take care

    I hope YOU'RE having a good day!

    Sixteen weeks sounds like a lot, so I'm glad you're looking for other places to be, like here, in the meantime. I'm glad you're here!

    Welcome! 16 week wait list...that's a while. Poking around here will help you see you are not alone and maybe give you some ideas of questions for your therapist when you get started.

    Thanks guys :) I appreciate the support, 16 weeks definitely feels like ages, it's frustrating cos it took me so long to work up the courage to go back and I'm worried I'll lose the nerve by then to be honest, ha.

    Glad you found this forum. It is a great place to land. You will find like-minded people here who will help to encourage, support, and yak with you. It is a place to process your experience and your frustrations. So many people have such nice and informative things to share. Sometimes, they see things, that I don't, that help push me forward. I am sure you will find this place a good place to be. Welcome!
