    You are so wise! Whatever brought you to this precipice, I’m sorry that you went through it but happy you didn’t merely repress your pain, as those diversionary tactics tend to do. I hope you’ve found yourself on the other side by now, because you’re far too beautiful a human being to suffer any sort of pain.

    One thing I would like to add to what you’ve said: if 11 of the 12 suggestions are of little or no relief, seeking help (therapy) is imperative, in my opinion — the sooner, the better. I recently found that music no longer lifted my mood, and music has always been my primary mood-altering remedy. I also found I couldn’t cry, so I watched a tear-jerker movie, hoping for a cathartic, cleansing cry. I was able to cry, but only for the movie.

    I immediately found a therapist. I have a long road ahead, but at least now I’m on the right road.

    Thank you, Lisa, for graciously and generously sharing your story and your wisdom.

      Why do you not have a blog of your own Pam?

      I started one several months ago. It’s still so hard to put my thoughts together without letting emotion get in my way. (I’ve been diagnosed with PTSD and Stockholm syndrome.) http://resonantdawn.com/

        Ok. I get that. One of the things that helped me most was writing. It doesn’t always have to be for public consumption. Try journaling without any judgment. Writing just for you … like in a private written book. I’ve blasted thru 2 of those in the last year.
