Post: RE: On touch

I think touch is very hard for us because of how misused it was and I think it is ok to have boundaries and tell people no and they insist- it is they that have the problem and not us. Touch is suppos...

I don't like admitting I get triggered by them but I'd be lying if I said I didn't. Its really hard and I want to look for a different job.

Post: RE: frustrated with T

Sorry for how you are feeling. Maybe you can write your T a letter. Sometimes that helps me get my thoughts out when I feel like my therapist doesn't get it or isn't listening. My T has thanked me for...

Post: RE: From the mouths of experts?

I'm sorry they treated you in that way. Especially in a CBT class where its all about thinking errors. They need to read their own book it sounds like.

I am also glad to know I am welcome here even if I am not in my "seperate parts" now. I'm still a survivor who was DID and always will be.

Post: long time since being here

Been a very long time since I have been here. Very scared. No one to talk to. Feel like there is no where I am accepted. No one who is like me. Just feel very alone and need somewhere to go.
