Tracy...I'm really sorry that "my stuff" acted as a trigger for you. I really hope that it comes as a "blessing in disguise", in that maybe if you can somehow tolerate all the things that are coming up for you now and manage to continue on your recovery path, that, that may become something really empowering for you. I don't like the thought of how uneasy and unsettled all this makes you - it's a horrible feeling, I know, but I do agree with what Joanna says in that triggering situations are always going to be part of our lives, and that a big part of recovery is learning how to deal with them. I am really grateful for all the support you've given to me in recent months Tracy, it's really good to log on here and see your responses, I take a lot of comfort from them - they are much appreciated - but I don't want you to feel like you have to support me, although it's appreciated, I also understand how it is to need to "pull back" a bit sometimes and take care of yourself, and I want to make sure that you know that I understand, and that it's okay, in fact better than okay - if you need to do that sometimes, as it means that you are placing the value that you deserve upon yourself...and that would make me just as happy, as seeing your responses to my comments :-) Thankyou Tracy for being there for me, and thankyou Joanna for being there for both of us! Much love xx
