Hi I am Chanty and I am new to this forum.
I have recently separated from my husband who verbally abused me over the years and physically assaulted me over the past 6 months by choking me on numerous occasion and suffocating me with a pillow.
Now, I have flashbacks of him choking me and I am making this 'girling' sound and cannot breath, many times of the day and I also have nightmares and I wake up in the middle of the night and cannot go back to sleep. I have been told that I need to find a trauma release therapist to deal with my trauma. I cannot function and every simple task, like taking a shower or getting dressed seems to take a lot of effort and I always feel exhausted and unable to do anything. Can anyone give me suggestions how to get over this and start the healing process? Thank you very much!
This is kind of off topic but I am wondering how you did, would or would not handle the Santa issue with kids? I could not have children because of one of my traumas but I think I would have told them Santa is not real. Then again they would be confused if they were in school and all the kids talked about him being real etc.I love the magic of Christmas like snow, lights, a great dinner, holiday...
