According to my little login box, I haven't been here for 3 years...yet here I am again. A lot has happened...I've grown in so many ways...yet I haven't. How's this for a kick in the head - I am LIVING with my former counselor, who needed my help to support her through a divorce... She asked for my help during a session, and she had helped me so much I felt like it was a way to give back... So first I supported emotionally, and then when she suggested we combine living expenses, it sounded logical... I was so strong then, so sure of myself. I was back in school for my MA degree, living on my own, supporting myself and my child... I was managing the PTSD of a lifetime of abuse... Now, it seems like our roles have reversed...I am supporting her and her daughter as she "recovers", emotionally, financially - everything. I can't talk about how I feel or have my own opinions. Anything I say is attacked. Any way I feel is wrong. She's the one with the training and the experience...and yet she see's me as never wanting to get better... I thought I was better, once upon a time. I am so confused, and don't know where else to go for help. Maybe someone here will understand. Or maybe not - I don't have too much energy left to hope anymore.
