I hope this doesn't sound sentimental. I can't say I am "on the other side", because that would sound like recovery is a goal, i.e. a task where we get to say, okay, all done now.
I'm not sure that's true. I see recovery more as a path, as an attitude that allows me to move forward together with other guys, but each at our own pace and in our own way.
I also wonder about recovery as having an "end", simply because we are all growing and learning all the time anyway. For survivors the task is of course more complicated. I can say that I have disposed of most of my feelings of shame, guilt and worthlessness, but once I had done that I discovered - to my dismay - that I now had to set something else up in their place. What would that be? I had no idea? So back to the T ... sigh.
What I'm saying is that from wherever it is that I am I can see that I am still on the path and that as I move forward I face new challenges that I had never seen or anticipated before.
The big difference is that I no longer face them with fear and dread. I can recover from a setback in an hour or a day rather than a month or half a year. I feel at peace with being Larry ... most times!
I am happy, or at least achieving more of that feeling than before. Basically, I know I can make it.
I know that isn't as concrete as you would like. I wish it were more concrete too, but so far as I can see it isn't. We are dealing with old emotions and feelings, bro, and those are difficult to nail down or predict as to their effects on us. And there is so much of the individual to consider here too. What triggers the hell out of me may not bother you at all.
