I am new to blogging so please be patient with me.
I published yesterday without finishing so I’m starting this new post
Why am I still here? How am I still moving on? A bit about myself…..I’m 41 and just beginning to heal from the rape I suffered at 9 years old. Ever hear of JCW? It stands for Jewish Comunity Watch and among other things, they help people heal from abuse. JCW came to my city and I was in awe at how someone can stand at the front of a packed room and describe the feelings I had without knowing me. He was able to do this because he too was abused. It was the first time EVER that somebody was able to describe my feelings. It was the first time I was introduced to using the word SURVIVOR instead of victim. It changed everything!
I joined a support group and I started seeing a therapist who specializes in trauma. I was beginning to take care of myself, a novel idea, don’t you think?
I’ll stop here because I would love to know: what started your healing?
I most certainly look forward to hearing from you 😘
