just thinking...

I remember when all of this came to light, and it was stressed that I should go see a psychiatrist. I never wanted to I thought to myself I don't need some one dissecting my actions and telling me why I did the things I did, so I never went and saw one. I look back now and I see that for me it was the best choice I could have made it allowed me to see who I was through my own eyes it made me deal with my own problems and caused me to reach out and meet other people that pulled me along through all of this. My thoughts always were a psychologist or psychiatrist can only take you so far the rest of the way you  need to find yourself, so I found that whole way not on my own but with the help of the people that I personally chose. In no way am I saying people shouldn't get help from a psychiatrist for there problems I am just sharing how i personally dealt with my situation and my ptsd, everyone is different but still in some way everyone needs to make the choice to continue their journey at some point on their own.

You are an amazingly strong person. I watched you process a lot of this on your own and saw you come out the other side with confidence and healthy understanding of who you are. Not many people would have the maturity, intelligence or insight at your age to be able to do what you did. That's why psychiatrists and psychologists are needed.

You remind me a lot of a younger version of myself for many reasons, but one thing you have going for you that I was lacking is the confidence in myself to be able to figure things out on my own. I did go to counselors etc. and I can tell you one thing: it was a waste of money and time. I think it would have been helpful for someone less insightful but they told me what I had already figured out and I felt like I knew as much as they did. I hope that doesn't sound arrogant, but its true.

I am so glad our paths crossed. I LOVE checking out your FB and seeing how happy you are these days with that cute BF of yours.

I have a feeling that no matter what challenges you encounter in life...you will always be made stronger by them and use them for good in the long run.
