I'm glad you pposted. Thanks for the support.
I know what you mean about the comfort "after" that you didn't get as a child. It is very powerful to tell a specific story, with lots of details, and then sit with the tears, feeling your therapist very near you, holding you emotionally. It is very healing. Mine gives me permission to cry long and hard because he knows this was so forbidden. And he knows that silence can feel threatening to me so he will just keep talking low and soft, telling me the rules are different here and that it needs to come out.
It is hard to tell the stories. But knowing you aren't alone as you relive it is so important. I hope you can do that for yourself.
Keep posting. It is nice to see so many new faces here.
