    Well, this is me

    So, it has been over a week since I signed up - I meant to introduce myself right away but I didn't get a chance before the initail excietment of participating turned to hesitation/fear...

    I tend to overthink things and stay hidden in my head - why are old patterns so hard to break even when you know they aren't really a protection?

    To try and bunk the freakin patterns I'm attaching a poem I wrote a number of years ago - this is where the name "child she" comes from, and this is a glimps of where I came from - and even though I keep working at discovering me I still feel like I haven't yet recovered my true self, I still can't really trust myself to know my true feelings or desires, I still can't claim a name beyond child she...

    Re: well, this is me

    Thanks for all the welcome messages...

    As someone who was raised to orbit around meeting my parents needs and to have no needs of my own, and someone whose partner suffers from PTSD and major depression, and someone who has been able to keep the illussion of functioning up well enough to trick society...well lets just say that being here is about stopping tricking even myself and admitting I have my own crap to deal with instead of using my husbands issues as a way not to deal with my own.

    Looking forward to many good discussions to come - unfortunately right now I have to go deal with my little exploding rear-end issues...

    Oh - Mari - glad you saved my poem

    to PsychLinks, childshe.

    Your poem is touching, and bears the echo of feelings I know I can relate to. I'm sure others here can relate, as well.
