It was difficult for them to “go back there” and share their experiences with me the first time I went to the group. They did it, retold their stories to me, just so I could see there was hope and see that they were surviving and that I could too. I cannot thank these women enough for getting me through that time and carrying me and giving me more strings to hang onto so that I would float instead of sink. (One of the women in my group actually taught me how to really float in the water, in my 40’s no less; it’s not easy to learn things later in life and I have since gone on to take swimming lessons).
A therapist’s reaction and my response next week.
