HUGE HUGS TO ALL OF YOU !!!
With Cheerleaders like you, I shall get through this. Thank you So MUCH! I am
shedding the scar tissue from inside, that helps me to see it better. It is too easy to get bogged down in all the crap from the past :
I got on this morning fully intending to remove my shame from this board, and found more healing. How did I ever get by without you? I am so glad that Terry Pratchett brought you into my life. I am printing this out, very good idea. It is hard to "say" the words without feeling terribly immature.
You see, I had been taught/told all my life that I had a wonderful existence and should always be grateful for it. When real life made that "truth" come into conflict, my mind was trained to shunt those feelings away. I am learning... sometimes as slowly as Treacle, that it is ok to remember these things as being wrong. Forgiving is another part of the process. My father asked for forgiveness several years before he passed on. That made a huge difference. I am having to come at it from the other side with my mother. We have not spoken for almost 7 years now, my choice and Huge need. I hope to make that hurdle. SWReader had suggested Myofacial Release as a part of therapy and now that I am on medicare, I may be able to take advantage of that.
Penfold, you are so sweet!! TYTYTY
