Re: New Here-Happy I found You ALL!
Hello. I have PTSD & Social anxiety too. I am a domestic violence survivor. I lived with my attacker for 2 1/2 years. I wrote more about myself under "Shutting Down." Anyway, It was such a relief when I found the courage to leave that monster (I took out 5 month old son with me). I returned to my home town, 5 states away, and for about 3 years I did pretty well. About a year ago I just fell apart with fear & anxiety. I started constantly looking over my shoulder & feeling like my & my son's lives are in danger. Now I'm on Zoloft, and am attending college part time. I'm not in a real good place in life right now. I'm trying to accept & process everything in a healthy way. I have good days & bad. I see a lot of pain, and a lot of courage on these boards. Hopefully, we can learn from and support eachother through to a brighter day.
Affirmation: Love is the most powerful force in the universe: it is infinate, and has many faces.
