Wow andyman,

Your response floored me.

I don't see myself as strong.

I have more sympathy for almost everyone apart from myself.

Usedtohaveabounce, I have split up my stuff into the various categories rather than put it all in one place, there's stuff I won't put on here at all.

I find smaller pieces of my life easier to handle.

But you do whatever suits you, its what you want that matters.

I'm probably talking nonsense

I really don't think you are!

Used to have a bounce,
As you can see, people on here are really supportive.

What I have found most useful is discussing and reading about symptoms, that is what unites us all.

To find others have the same symptoms as me is really helpful, it allows me to accept them as part of the trauma I've experienced, makes it part of something that isn't innate within me but an 'add on' which is not my fault.

See, many people donít realize that it takes real strength, like intestinal fortitude and heart, to be a survivor.  And the amount of courage it takes to speak up and ask for help, is just massive.  And sharing with and supporting others is an amazing show of strength and courage and compassion.
And you been doing just that.
