    Having a difficult time

    I am feeling overwhelmed right now.  My husband and I have been in marriage counselling with 2 different counsellors in 3 years.  As with the last he brings up he doesn't believe my abuse story that had emerged during one of our earlier sessions.  It had been hidden in my brain for almost 50 years so I have had a lot of adjustments dealing with these memories.My Mom did not believe me when I...

    BF's therapist told him to leave me?

    (TW) I have ptsd from sexual and physical abuse by my ex boyfriend. This happened years ago but just last month I saw him because he promised to return something important to me and he raped me again. I didn't tell anyone, not even my current boyfriend (even though we're together long term and serious) because I was ashamed and didn't want to bother anyone.A week later I was involuntarily...

    Hi everyoneI am joining this page for several reasons. 1) I am a entering the field of counseling (again) after a few years break and some burnout recovery time and I have a couple of classes I need to take to get licensed in my state. One of those classes requires me to be in an online support group. 2) I have a client who is only 4 years old and appears to be the victim of sexual assault. We...

    TW lots of questions.

    7
    I was wondering if there was anyone out there who has been assaulted at work by a client? Or if anyone has been held hostage? I guess I am asking because I really feel alone right now. I like this place, but I don't know if I belong. I don't want to cause someone harm or to accidently trigger anyone. I always worry about that now. I just feel lost and that I am not understood. I want so much for...

    Looking for last place to land

    I was born and raised in the USA until my missionary parents took me to where they served in a war zone in South America.  That made me bilingual and bicultural forever after that, in addition to giving me the gift of PTSD from age 9 when we all survived a carbombing in one of South America's funny, dirty little wars nobody up here every heard about.I made the most of that funny, dirty little...

    I spent 20 years of my life with an alcoholic. He died of Cirrhosis at the age of 42. I was only 43. That was 2 years ago. The last 7 years before his death were absolute he'll. I worked 60 hours a week to try to support us while he drank his life away. We lived without running water or heat for the last 3 years of his life. I stayed not put of love but our of responsibility. Time passes I am...

    I'm having the worst day! scared-advice

    I'm so upset. I'm on certain medications for all my many issues. One of my doctors recently left the practice I go to but set me up with a new doctor for in a month & a half. He left me w/ refills on my medications till then. When I called in the refill this Sunday the pharmacist said the doctor wasn't in the computer so he couldn't fill it. So I called Sunday because the desk & a few other...

    I think I got raped more than once...TW

    1
    I just realized last night that I think I got raped twice by my ex after my first rape (ugh, how awful to say that), if we're going by the definition that rape is non-consensual sex and not by legal definitions.One incident involved BDSM, in which I agreed thinking that it was basically going to be light spanking or whatever, but he was aggressive with me, ordering me to do to him, slapping me,...

    Walk a Day

    I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
