I don't remember the exact date, but it occured to me the other day that it was 10 summers ago that I had the flashback which started me to question so many things about my childhood.

10 years.

If I started writing about all of that, it would probably take another ten years.

What I think is worth saying is that it hasn't always been easy. There have been good and bad moments. Some of the early help I got made a HUGE difference, and then a friend has helped me tremendously in recent years, too.

I consider myself a much healthier person today, and say without reservation that the work put into recovery is worth it.

Maybe in a separate post I'll list some of the hardest moments and some of the best ones.

Congratulations on your anniversary and this great insight.
You gave us some answers about something that many of us occasionally wonder:

"I consider myself a much healthier person today, and say without reservation that the work put into recovery is worth it."

Thank you for sharing with us!!!

Hi L2R

Thanks for the beautiful post.
It is refreshing to hear from people that have gone through the recovery process.

Most often I think that the members here, join heal and leave, so all we are left with is people that are in the process of recovery, so I hope that a few thrivers (That ARE NOT MODS) hang around here for the ones that are hurting to see that life does improve, kinda like a hope for the hopeless.

Heal well
