In our Facebook Peer Support Group, I see a lot of us asking “Should I…?” questions of each other. This is actually one of the reasons why being in a peer group is so great. We are talking with people who ‘get’ what we are going through and collectively have tried a lot of different things.
Have you ever been to a Therapist who has minimised, made small of, your childhood trauma. OR had a Therapist say “you come from a very trashy background” or even this “you’re drinking caused the abuse.” All of these responses, and more, were said to members of our global family by therapists, and I was devastated for them.
