Recovery Journals / Re: Sceal's Journal

Itís alright ó take your time with your studies and rest.

I understand, Sceal. Past experiences like that can make anyone uneasy. But from observing multiple points of view from afar, I donít think the danger lies with religion, but simply anyone who forces their ideas on people. Not that I think you think that, but your emotions are feeling otherwise.

I grew up reading bounds of subjects about science ó and usually it was full of atheists. They thought ending religion would end discrimination, but they did that by discriminating against the religious.

I believe the same thing as you do ó mixing different ideas together and finding a new way at looking at the world. Thatís what I love about learning the most. How different ideas come together.

Take care, Sceal.  :hug:

Thank you.
Contemplation, crying and confusion. Too much.

It can be impossible to find any positives out of what only appears hopeless contradiction. But that's not the most important consideration--what matters most is that you remain honest and true with yourself.

If that seems selfish to some, so be it; but it can also be the wisest option. You still  have peace with yourself, the most important consideration.

The sadness will come, and be felt, but it at least can fade, whereas your own integrity always stays with you.

I feel like I come here so much. Tonight I am coming for some peace as well, but from a bit different set of emotions. I am going to rest because emotions are exhausting. Might find me on the porch tonight, in my favorite chair. There will be endless tea, as I have felt true hatred for the first time in my life, tea is a calming substance for me. Help me finish this wave of things

The thing I like the most about this forum is knowing I am not alone.  Family is difficult.  I was disowned by my family and all I wanted was them back, regardless.  Then I got them back and I want to break free.  I hope you keep talking and reading. 

I can say this, I am better than I was a year ago.  It isn't where I want to be, but it is better.  I still struggle, all the time, but I can say it did get better.

General Discussion / Re: If You Developed CPTSD in Adulthood

I developed C-PTSD during adulthood as a result of spending 8 years trying to heal my mentally I'll wife.

I did not notice the effects it was having on my life or my children's until we undertook an escape run 5 months.

Now, I can see and feel just how badly my inability to care for the caregiver and how unmanageable my life became.

We are NC but we have a lot of healing to do.

Yes, it is abusive and unhealthy for you.

Welcome to the forum. You are still very close to your pain.

You are surviving. It may take time - lots of it - but Recovery can come. The most improbable things can happen and you will start to thrive again.

For now. Peace. LTLTR
