How are we doing?
Fort is somewhere I can come for hours at a time or just a few minutes to pass my time in between chores. Fort is somewhere I can escape to when things are really tough and I cannot face people face to face and would never be able to talk the way I do here.
I obviously was seeking some type of help or clarity with what I have experienced and ended up here. I think that's a good positive step forward in dealing with the struggles that I felt hopeless about for years.
This site has been immensely helpful to me, not to mention validating.
Fort is a place where I can share how I feel, whether that be very good or very bad. I don't have to feel ashamed of anything that is going on in my life.
This site has been so helpful to me. I can't express how thankful I am to have support from everybody on this site. Words don't seem to do this site justice.
Gotta tell ya I thought this place would boot me out if I got a little real with what's in my head but they don't - this is a real place where you can totally be yourself and that to me is sweet!
I came to the Fort with no experience of on-line communities...and more than a little trepidation. I was surprised how quickly I felt at home...felt that I belonged.
I am 2 years away from abuser now. I feel that feeling of anxiety in the pit of my stomach, just revisiting these Issues. But, that tells me I still have work to do. I hope in my process of healing, it will help someone too. Guess thats the whole idea!
Thank You so much for all these resources, you have no idea how much they helped me.
I think this site is wonderful! I'm an information and referral coordinator and I just emailed the link to a caller looking for help along with links to some therapists who treat dissociative disorders. Thanks!
I'm understood. I'm not a freak of nature. I'm not a lunchroom chat topic. I'm a human with feelings and the people here don't push me, they just listen. For the first time. I have friends. They may be on a computer, but they're still my friends.
I found some really interesting information.
