Title: To Kizzie
Post by: notalone on March 27, 2020, 02:59:12 PM
Kizzie,

I want to tell you how much I appreciate OOTS and all you do (which I'm sure is much more than I can imagine) to keep it going. The wonderful people on OOTS are an important part of my support system.

I've noticed that when you respond to others, you often share ideas; "maybe this would work, or would it help to try?. . ." I love your creativity in finding help/solutions to problems. Even more, I applaud your courage in sharing your ideas with others.

Thank you, Kizzie!

I want to join the others in expressing my gratitude for all the hard work you are doing on behalf of our community.
I found invaluable information here on the forum and on the website. You must be a kind and compassionate soul! 😇

Many thanks, Kizzie!

Yes, I was just thinking the other day - how much would I know about this beast were it not for the creation of this website and forum?

I knew about cptsd from other sources, but found a supportive community here that understands and shares (at least some of) my life experiences.

Books, podcasts, videos, articles - this is a treasure trove of information and support. I'm thankful! 👍👍👍

As Three Roses said, I wouldn't know what to do if it wasn't for this forum. Everyone's experience and writing here as helped me understand that I am not alone, and see what the underlying problem is for my EFs and other symptoms. Especially because of the lack of information that, in my experience, most therapists have, this forum has been the reason why I am still sticking to getting healthier and healing my trauma.
So thank you Kizzie! :waveline:

You are so welcome  :yes:

I started this because there wasn't much if anything out there for us in 2014 except Pete Walker's book - no web sites or groups I ever found save ones for specific types of abuse versus the root cause - ongoing relational trauma, and the result - Complex PTSD. 

I knew there were probably a lot of us out there but wasn't sure if anyone would find OOTS and join.  Six years later and there have been over 7,500 register and now many others sites/resources for RT survivors thankfully.   :thumbup:   

I'd say we're pretty much 'out of the closet' now  ;D

I can only agree with what the others have said, Kizzie. This is a great place and for me at the very least the first place where I feel like I can talk about my experiences without holding back or being ashamed.


Thank you so much  :cheer:

Usually I hate joining in on these things, saying basically the same thing everyone else is saying... but, in all honesty, finding this site and these forums has been totally life changing for me. I cannot say thank you enough.
