Yeah the list is daunting. If I was able to get to a stage where I could be so bold and be in charge of the way I handle my recovery then I wouldn't have to be here. I've been hiding my past for so long and in such an extreme way that it will be hard to change course. Until 2-1/2 years ago nobody ever knew my past, never knew the schools I went to, absolutely nothing about me, I first told my wife only 2 years ago. She never even knew that I was in the USAF. Nothing before the age of 22 ever existed for anyone in my life. I never had close friends only acquaintances. So just trying to be that way I think is impossible for me. I've been hiding for the last 40 years with the last 2-1/2 years trying to change all that.
I don't blame anyone but myself for what went on for at least 9 years of my childhood. I understand that everyone has to find their own way of healing but the list sounds a little like "get over it". But in a way I think that the guy who came up with the list has a very positive attitude which is great.
Well I'll see what's further down the pike for me. This is a great thread, some really interesting posts so thanks for starting it. Take care of yourself
