I have a support group that meets once a month and I went twice but I didnt feel safe in the group at all. I was in a support group for 9 years because I had a drinking problem in my 20's and I overcame the alcohol problem and today have no issues with alcohol.But I was abused emotionally and mentally by members in the group and easily manipulated and taken advantage of. I finally left six months ago and I have moved past it but Im afraid i dont trust people easily anymore. I have high functioning autism and six months ago I had meltdowns everyday multiples times a day. Now I have zero meltdowns. I finally feel comfortable in my own skin for the first time in my life and can fully embrace my autism. I choose to live my life to the fullest and not let my autism be a disability. I am going back to school to get a degree in Biology. My group has decided to meet once a week now only thing there will be no facilitator because the facilitator doesnt have time to meet every week. I was fine going when there was a facilitator and taking my time to get to know people. Im worried that the atmosphere of the group might be different and that it might be unhealthy. Maybe I am being judgmental but I was hurt real badly and bullied severely all my life and manipulated. I have a history of sexual trauma from my childhood.
I would like to ask for prayers for my son who is having a very difficult time in his life right now, he recently had a massive heart attack, and is having major problems in his life. He is feeling very alone and without hope. He is really needing a small miracle to let him know he is loved and not alone. Thank you very much. God bless you all.

She was given no...
