    its not stupid. It takes some people their whole lifes to finally drop the burden. you are not alone in this, dont forget that.

    Have you been getting support in dealing with the feelings and how you still havent got past it?

    I am assuming that you have PTSD because of your statement. You NEVER get over PTSD. There is no cure for it, but with therapy, medication and dealing with your trauma you can maintain yourself pretty well.

    In order to really get better you have to talk about the trauma in full detail. How you felt at the time, how you felt right after. Really get back and remember the emotions. Write it all down, over and over and then re-read everything over and over. It's basically desensitizing yourself to the trauma, and the emotions.

    Stuffing things or pushing it away doesn't work. I know. I have PTSD. Sucks but it's what i am left with......

    It's not stupid at all. Some people take there entire lives to over come past experiences, some people don't overcome them and for others it takes a shorter amount of time. As long as you keep on fighting and wanting to overcome this then no matter what happens, at least you gave it your best shot.

    U don't get over abuse, you learn to I guess deal with it and accept the past so that you can live your future not in the shadows on the past.

    are you receiving counselling of any form..if not, you might find it helps to talk to someone, someone who can help you deal with the past, the present and look to the future..therapy should be 1/3 past, 1/3 present and 1/3 future this will then hopefully give you the tools to be happy and content in life, and at peace with urself x

    if you ever need to talk, please feel free to contact me x
