Hi and welcome to babble. :) Just like Dinah said, it took me awhile to learn to feel and label emotions aside from "bad" or "okay". I had a really excellent therapist several years ago where I worked on that... saw a few therapists after her, and now I'm actually back with the original therapist again, working on completely different issues than I worked on with her many years ago. It's definitely a process. I'm 26 now.. we're the same age it sounds like. I think the body and mind is excellent at "turning things off" when it needs to, like to protect itself emotionally from abuse and trauma. I've never experienced anything like the type of abuse you describe, but I can only imagine how terrible that would be. It will probably have to come out a little at a time, sometimes probably so slowly you dont even realize it's happening. Your mind will let yourself start to feel things as you are ready for it. I try to trust myself in that way and not get too frustrated with the process.. it's very hard but it's all most of us can really do. It's great that you have a therapist you like. I think that's very important. Hope to see you posting here in the future! :)
