This question keeps running around my head and I toss it out to see what's out there.

What do you do when you're a survivor but not a CSA survivor?

Over the last 3 months, I've read all sorts of posts talking about getting in contact with the "inner child" etc. But what about those that were hurt AS ADULTS? What works with that?

I see some posts about the recovery process, but am not sure what to make of those since they seem more geared toward CSA. I feel like I'm running into a brick wall.

Maybe it's because of the significant stress in my life that I'm letting out this frustration, but I am tired of a lot of things right now. And this should be one of the happiest times in my life! Instead of fully enjoying the happiness I know I should be, some of the symptoms of my military sexual trauma are coming out to play.

Thoughts and suggestions please,
