I am going to respectfully add some stuff on to what my fellow mods have said. Because I think we are struggling with what we can do to help you? What exactly can we do to be supportive of you? We all agree that being confined against one's will is not something anyone would choose to do. But now comes the phase in which one learns how to deal with harm done to them, whether it is keeping it an
open bleeding wound or find a way to help that wound to heal. I am sure you are aware that keeping this an
open bleeding wound is not a healthy thing. So we are struggling with how do we help you find a way to heal?
I think the question for us all to consider is how can we heal and feel better? What are the steps we need to take? (I want you to know I think the other mods were trying to get at that as well.) I am not sure if you have ever heard of a saying that goes something like holding on to anger is like drinking poison and hoping the person you are angry with dies. I am are concerned that you are still drinking this posion. If writing this blog will help you get expell that poison, then I say do it. If this helps you work thru what happened and how you feel about
it then good. I suspect that the issues in part might be that you are not feeling heard and validated. Whatever you do, I think moving in a positive proactive direction that will help heal this wound you have suffered is a really good idea.
What do you think will help?
I just want to make the suggestion, because I do not know what else we can do, of thinking about
finding a mental health professional (and I know that is a big huge risk for you) that you like and you feel comfortable with (and it could take several) that can help you deal with the issues you are having (or perhaps I am incorrect that you are having issues with this, but I think anyone would say that being confined against one's will is tramatic), because I am concerned that this will just continue to eat at you and I think we are all trying to find a way to help you heal from this wound. I do not know, if they ever came up with a dx for you, but I think finding a mental health care professional that will understand your perspective and advocate for you would be a first line of defense against this happening again, it might help to be heard, and might help with your complaint.
So I again submit the question to you, how can we help support your healing process?
