Hi thepatient,

Welcome to MS. You are right, many of us spent most of our adult lives denying our abuse and its effects on us. You are very fortunate to have the strength and courage to start at age 25. You can avoid all our mistakes if you keep at it and do the work of recovery. Be well.

Welcome to MS glad you posted and shared Where you are at.

Get busy working the steps in your twelve step program - The Steps are vital exercises that will give you powerful skills for handling your life's problems without resorting to destructive behavior.

We all need to learn skills to deal with life. As an abuse victim my relationships, sense of masculinity amd sexualtiy, trust and intimacy were especially tangled up. And my recovery is a direct result of being willing to learn and apply new skills and abstain from destructive behaviors.
We have to take responsibility for what we're not responsible for.
