Pressing,I am so sorry, hun, that you are going through this. It could be your memory trying to let out what it has blocked for years. I am not a mental health professional and I am wondering what your counselor has to say about the dreams in relationship to the work you are doing on your past?
Please take care of you and I am so proud of you for the hard work you are doing. Gnetle Hugs to you.Kitt
Wow!! While reading your post, it was like reading about me - everything was so very similar to what I am dealing with. I am so sorry that you have had to go through those awful things - I too know how you feel. It's amazing to me just how good we become at shutting down so that we don't have to feel that pain again.
I am glad to hear that you are in counseling to help you get through this - it's not an easy thing to do. Many years ago I went through counseling about the abuse, but I only went so far because there was so much that I don't remember and didn't want to delve into those awful hidden memories. I still don't remember a lot and don't want to. I hope you follow all the recommendations your counselor gives you and hope you are able to resolve that part of your life so that you can put it behind you and move on to a much happier life. But remember, this is not an easy or quick process - it will take a lot of time to get through this. When feeling overwhelmed remember to call your counselor so that you can get through that moment. Please keep posting to let us know how things are going; we will support you in any way possible.
