To me it helps that i can disclose certain matters which are too sensitive to share with friends or family, sometimes even the therapist.
Whether it helps in my healing.. i guess every step ive been taking to be honest with and to myself, will eventually help me to heal.
you've had a pretty rough ride so far, but you can express it very well. I hope that you will find something here on MS which will help you!
Trust me, you are worth it to love yourself!
I now know who I am - I've never been anybody else!
