I found my soul mate. I opened up to him. He knows everything about me that I know myself. He loves me dearly. And my major accomplishment is that everyday I'm more comfortable thinking that I deserve his love.

That is mine as well.
You summed it up so beautifully.
I am so grateful for him, because without him, I don't know where I'd be.

Knowing there are probably always going to be triggers but knowing that I can handle anything becuase I love myself and I am so strong!

That sounds like me. :D I've also learned to relax around guys that I've known for a long time. (I'm still kinda :suspect: of ones that I barely know.)

I've started my own business - as an artist
overcome my fear of the dark
gone to the police and he's behind bars now.
found my soul mate - still don't know why he puts up with me though
started writing
joined here and chatted to people after finally realizing I was living made up life.
started wearing my hair how I want to - not how my mother did.

asked for help when I needed it.


I hope to soon say I can sleep through the night.

thanks to every-one.
Flame

Face the truth. I'm still working on the self-blame, but it's only been 3 months for me.

Opening up to my friends and a few family members about what happened. Allowing them to support me and validate what happened to me.

I hope there will be more accomplishments for me in the future...

I've moved out of my abusive grandmother's house and I now live 1000 miles away.

I'm working a full time job and providing for myself and my room mates.

I'm going to a therapist for counseling to work through my depression and PTSD.

I started taking a mild anti-depressant for my emotional unbalance, and it's helping me wonderfully.

I can look people in the eye again.

I'm drawing and writing and being creative again.

I'm less socially crippled and I don't flee the room at the slightest awkward moment anymore.

I went out on a limb and got half of my hair buzzed short in a punk style, despite the lingering thoughts that my grandmother would beat me for doing such a thing.

I've stopped wearing huge, frumpy clothes and I'm showing my curves again.

I've lost 30 pounds since this past November, just by eating healthier and drinking water.

I can cuddle with close friends and not flinch or shy away.

My nightmares have lessened drastically and my sleep has improved.

I don't feel hopeless and useless anymore.

I care about my appearance again. I like dressing up and putting on makeup and looking attractive, like I used to.

I can spend a day in public by myself and not hyperventilate.

SPOILER, highlight to show content
[color=#A9CAA8;background:#A9CAA8]I can touch myself and feel pleasure from it, instead of feeling numb or disgusting. [/color]



I've improved this much in the course of 5 and a half months. :P

Mine has been time, recently opening up to a counselor and close friends (the past few years), and time. I still have a ways to go because I have never been with a man (since this happened to me when I was 9). At 23, I still have yet to have a relationship with a man. I think the worst part is actually admitting that I have a problem, so many years later, with trying to date, talk, and be intimate with men. But I have come a lot further than I was when I would have a panic attack before a date!
