Place in recovery

In 2004, I came here as a broken, frightened man after finally realizing what all the memories really were. This was my first refuge. That taught me I am not alone. It was a very dark time. And I had zero hope of it ever getting better, even though you assured me it would. I went to a WoR at Hope Springs in that September. First time I ever met survivors face to face. It was both exhilarating and scary.

It took a number of years without making much progress because I was scared about what I would have to face. When I finally faced that fear and went to the VA for help, that was the real start to my recovery. I got on meds to deal with my PTSD (Both CSA and combat) and they helped quiet my mind so I could go forward.

Fast forward to 2019. After years of hard work, I am here to tell you that there is hope and there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Will I ever be fully recovered? I don't know. But I am at a place of peace and contentment, even though things can still get tough sometimes. I learned that the only thing that never changes is everything changes. Thank you and God bless you MS, as well as all my brothers here.
