It can be terrifying to go to counselling because it means dredging up all the feelings and emotions of the past. But I found that in order to get beyond what happened to me, I couldn't circumvent the feelings and emotions; I had to go through them. Therapy helped me do that in a safe environment. Just always remember that what happened is in the past, and that what you're dealing with now are the repercussions. Make that call; it's the best things you can do for yourself. It can change your life for the better. It certainly did for me, even though it took some time for that to happen, even though there were times when I was struggling to cope with all the memories. It was worth it because I finally let go of all the anger and hatred and emotional baggage that I'd been carrying around for years (it's what my book is all about). That can happen for you too. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

You're not alone Stormi

Stormie; Definatley talk to someone, a counselor to help you get thru the memories. There's a book called "Feelings Buried Alive Never Die". Ck. it out sometime. Until we can express our feelings, the things that happen to us,we stay stuck....even though time has passed. Our bodies store those memories & feelings,& we need to release them from our system, so that we can move into the light of hope, freedom, & love. Posting on here, & reading others stories is a good step in recovery. Proud of you, and glad you opened up to us. I counsel, do support work in these areas, but no one around me ,knew I still carried deep scars & shame inside of me.A friend from chruch, Baptist, no less, told me she heard about a local group, "Porcelain Dolls". It's a ministry of women who make goodie bags- bags with makeup,cologne, & a card that says you are preciouse & loved. They go into bars, & share His love with strippers.Anyway, I got defensive, & out of my mouth rolled a hidden secret. I asked how she knew that I had been a dancer? Oop's!She had no clue. Point is that it was time for me to face that painful part of my life, recieve forgivenss & get healing from that hidden pain of my past. I have worked tru the incest issues, but hadn't let the healing light shine on that part of me, that needed to be heard, healed & loved. It took a group of saved strippers to reach out & show God's love to the frightened hurt young girl who had also gone from incest survivor to a lost & hurting dancer.
