How to handle trigger-containing material in personal narratives request for guidance on the community's best practices

I believe today I'm out of crisis, I'm just hurting and recuperating and probably ready to talk. I was feeling so overwhelmed by bad stuff for some days that I hesitated to say anything at all. I started to put it in my live journal, filtered for safe friends, but then became so uncomfortable saying anything I shut up about it. Now I feel like I'm in a space where I can look back and figure out what was that all about?
So before I begin posting here, I'd like to ask for 101 on how does the community talk such things over.
OK, I guess I still have some active sore spots... probably ought to wait before saying anything?

Welcome to Pandys :)/>
You may find it helpful to spend some time looking through the different forums and to get some sort of idea about how various issues are discussed. There isn't a really right or a wrong way, because we're all individuals and we all (eventually!) work out for ourselves what works best. I think the trick is to take it slow and to go at your own pace. Don't push yourself too hard :hug:/>
