Lonndon meet up group, narc survivors.
« on: November 21, 2017, 07:57:31 PM »
saw a group on meetup, so decided to join.

thoughts on meeting up, good or bad idea? Personally, I find people without trauma hard to relate to so, well why not?

Why not indeed James,

Should be an interesting bunch.

If you want a seat against a wall facing the door then better get there early.....

Good luck with this James. I really hope it's good for you!

I tend to get pretty triggered by others with C-PTSD, and also those without like in 12 Step groups which I simply don't go to anymore. Only when there are pretty strict guidelines like on here banning covert "should" statements to others, do I feel safe.

But we're all different and have different needs and different coping strategies.

I'll try it, but I'll have my hand on the ejector handle

The fact you are going to try it is really quite healthy, positive and optimistic.

I don't think I could do that, respect.

I'm vicariously looking forward to hearing about it all, I can find out all about the group dynamic without taking any risk myself.

I haven't been getting out much lately!

Newport. I have mates there and the costs are low. I'm going to pour the coals on as a writer, my book sales are up and given the costs in Wales I can use them to pay the rent. London is impossible on my current freelance levels. I love central wales too. Easy access for walking. Works.
