Glad you are back and were able to get good insights into trauma. Trauma is something we all knew little about. As we heal and meet with experts we begin to better understand what effects the abuse had on us--it was trauma. It is always best to hear it from the experts. There are too many quacks out there pontificating that abuse is not trauma and trauma does not effect ones life. They do not have a clue. But you now know you do not need to blame yourself it was not your fault.
You have received sound advice and I can hear in your words hope and optimism. You have a clear path. I look forward to seeing you on the board.
