And her morning alarm was a song by Elvis Costello.She has written a very important book and I am so honoured to share my space here with her hard-won wisdom today. Making snap judgments about someone’s healing journey and how long it “should” take only makes them want to quit. Sociopaths and psychopaths don’t process regret or shame like others.
was the total truth about my childhood and the total truth about why I have post-traumatic stress disorder.
I’ve never found that someone loves me more after finding out about childhood sexual abuse.
It felt so warm and comfortable for Gwen to be in Paul's arms.
He stroked her back and they began to kiss-- affectionately at first and then with increasing passion.
And I don’t mean that in the lame say-it-but-don’t-mean-it way.
She was my roommate when we were in Haiti together in 2012, and she is genuine, whole, brave, loving, funny, and smart.
As her bf of 1.5 years, i know she's just protecting herself by lying, and i never raise any question or showed that i doubted her words. i know it happened before, and she has EXACTLY the same symptoms that were mentioned in the emails on this forum.. In our first 6 months of just casually hanging out and dating, she would faint and have bloated stomachaches, vomitting/nausea, and terrible headaches or abdomen pain.
Only the fainting stopped as i tried to reassure her all the time in order to build a level of trust to make things better, but the other problems are still prevalent even after so long.
As the intensity of their intimacy grew, a part of Gwen began to withdraw.
