Big big hugs. You have suffered so much in silence, and that must intensify the shame (undeserved shame, but no less real and painful). I am not a lawyer, so I don't know that the authorities are always contacted, especially given an old case with possible statute of limitations issues. But, even if...

I had a dream about going to see my former therapist and when I awoke I remembered something. She did think there was cause for concern and called my pdoc to discuss whether they should bring in the authorities. They decided that since the person at the children's home knew, it was in her hands, fro...

((((((((tacking, warmie))))))))) sososo true. I know my depression is an emptiness ....so much loss, gone is almost all that gave life meaning and reason to go on. The only thing I hang on to is that I love my mom and owe it to her to help her out, but that doesn't ease the pain. My job, my animals,...

(((((((brad))))))))) glad you found your way to the forum. When you can, maybe you could go to a library and browse the hobbies section or even google things you might be interested in? I am not working either, and when I had hobbies it helped a lot. Unfortunately I've lost interest in things. My se...

((((((((brother ken)))))))) wish i could rest, I am just too troubled. ((((((((Holly)))))))))) I know the dreams aren't realistic, the problem is they open the wounds to what is real everytime I have them. I am exceedingly frustrated and angry. Its not just that I am blocked from things I want and s...

(((((((((Un)Enlightened)))))))))) For me its not a matter of logic as much as emotion. When I see suffering, I feel compelled to act if I can. I have personally suffered far more than I can bear in my short 48 years on earth, and so I have compassion for others and a drive to help them as so often p...

(((((((((Un)Enlightened))))))))) you have been through so much and are going through so much. I understand what it is to put on an outershell that doesn't let anyone see the pain inside and to repress the pain as if nothing happened. I did that for a long time and it caught up with me. Eventually th...

Thanks ((((((((holly))))))). The dreams make no real sense, because he will be on the sex offender registry when he gets out. What happened in reality is that I told my pdoc thought something was going on, went to an old therapist of mine and talked to her about my fears, confronted my husband with ...

(((((((((jj))))))))))) so saddened to hear what you went through. If you haven't already, I strongly encourage you to seek out Adult Children of Alcoholics. These 12 step programs can be almost as good a therapy sometimes in finding healing along with others who have been there. I think you would be...

Know what this reminds me of? When I was a tweener at that awkward stage I got in my head that my eyebrows were too big. I didn't know you could pluck them in shape. I stupidly took a pair of scissors to my eyebrow and ended up with a big bald chunk right in the center of one eyebrow, right before s...

I am overcome with resentment, sadness, hopelessness...I am ashamed to admit it, but as much as I love my mother, I sort of resent that she needs my help because if she didn't maybe I could end my life. I always thought all life had value, but now I just feel like a burden to society. I just want to...
