Is there a place to just talk about what happened to us?
« on: July 17, 2016, 03:08:24 PM »
I find I am at a stage of my recovery where I am desperate to talk about what happened. I feel this strong need to tell my story and to be heard. I have a therapist, and it helps. I have a journal, and it's useful too, but not for this kind of need (to be heard.) But I do not want to clutter up the boards here with venting. It seems like all of the spaces on the board are used for advice, not so much talking about what happened.

Is there an appropriate place here to do that?

self reflection is always ok in 'working on us'.

I very much appreciate the suggestion, but it doesn't seem like what I am looking for. It's not exactly self-reflection and it wouldn't be helpful to anyone else, just me.

Thank you though!

How about unsent letter? Or why not here.  The forum is for each and all of us.

sno, I came here needing to talk, but I can get overwhelmed easily, and I am new here...but if you feel the need to talk, I agree just start here. You are not alone.

how's this.

if you start a conversation that's not in the right place or appropriate to the scope of the forum, someone on the mod/admin team will let you know and if possible, redirect or move the thread to make it suit what you needs but still remain within the guidelines of the forum.  working on us or the cafe would be good spots if it's more about where you are at in your headspace vs the PD/uPD relationship that brought you to the forum.
