I recently had a breakdown (2.5 weeks ago). I am in therapy, and am just starting to go over childhood traumas. Well, just starting to allow myself to feel the pain of traumas. (phys/sexual/verbal/emotional abuse, and the death of a parent at the age of 11). I feel like I let down a lot of walls. Now, I am constantly fearful, can't stop crying, can hardly carry on a conversation.... etc. I vascilate between extreme hopefullness that God will help me, then extreme discouragement that these symptoms will never go away. I feel like a freak, and like no one understands. I have a lot of support, but right now feel alone, because I don't know how to tell my friends to help me, and am extremely embarrassed as I feel they can't understand... and I myself feel crazy!

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
