Light conversations between members on topics not related to abuse. Recipes, knitting patterns, funny joke you heard, picture of your new pair of shoes - share it with us! Posts made here do not add to your post count, but are a great way to socialize!
Let's come together to figure out how to work through these painful emotions that we all struggle with once in a while. Post your questions, interesting articles you found, helpful tricks you discovered, or simply your struggles with these feelings.
Practical steps we take to take charge and feel good again. What works, what doesn't, how do we overcome obstacles in mastering activities of daily living, helpful meditation techniques, new years resolutions, 100 things to do before I die, - anything that helps you put your life back on track.
Past abuse can certainly impact our current relationships. We might struggle with trust, boundaries, communication, or any other aspect that makes a relationship healthy and pleasurable. Post your struggles, questions, discoveries, interesting articles you found, or anything else relevant to relationships in the folders below.
Place to discuss your struggles, insights, thoughts, and feelings regarding religion. Please note though - ALL religions and beliefs are welcome here. Fort is a multicultural community, please respect all of our members.
Doing harmful things to one's body is not uncommon among abuse survivors. We hear your pain. Post your struggles, victories, insights, and questions here - but please refrain from extra graphic descriptions...
Discussions & articles on various psychiatric conditions. Please remain non-judgemental, even when discussing sociopaths, and please keep the discussions constructive. Post in Rants if you need to rant :)
