Hello. I just joined this group. My trauma was repeated physical and emotional abuse by my husband. I’ve moved to a different state and feel much safer here but I’m having trouble getting away from my memories of the trauma. Also, I’m still afraid of him which makes no sense because he’s far away. And I have not filed for divorce yet. I was trying to find a local support group but no luck there so I joined this group. I’m looking for advice on where to start on recovery. Thanks!

I’ve got my first appointment with a therapist on Wednesday. Hoping that she can help me.
I went to a few divorcecare meetings last year. At that time I had not yet realized that I’m afraid of divorce and I quit going and blamed my quitting on procrastination. It’s taken me so long to figure out that I need help.
Thanks so much for support. I really appreciate it.

Update: I saw my new therapist on Wednesday. I’m feeling quite hopeful about working with her and recovering.
I’ve also started reading and doing the exercises in the workbook. It’s really good and I’m learning so much about how the trauma affected me.
Thanks again to everyone who has posted here. You are truly inspirational.
