Our Goal

OUR GOAL

To provide a unique environment where folks who have experienced trauma can openly and safely talk. We strive to respect, validate, and learn from each other.

ACHIEVING OUR GOAL

Achieving our goal requires cooperative collaboration amongst members and staff. Members posts remain appropriate and relevant to topics. Terms of Service are clearly posted to help members maintain the dignity of the board. Members of this group are at a stage in their healing to independently regulate their own behavior, as well as keeping themselves safe while on the forums. Staff regularly monitor posts and replies to ensure the board remains a safe and comfortable environment of learning for everyone.

As a friendly and kind community, we validate each other as equally special and significant.

These forums are active and the community not too large or too small - about 400 post per day. There are many forums on different topics. The topics range in subject matter also. You are welcome to interact as you feel comfortable.

This is a safe place for members. We encourage building coping skills, learning from each other and material shared. We discourage sharing explicit memories of past abuse. We feel that processing memories be done with professionals. There are no practicing therapists on these forums. Therefore, topics that call for therapist type responses are discouraged.

Feel free to look around. Realize that, as a guest, your view of the forums is minimal. These forums are otherwise private to the public view and/or search engines.

We have literally hundreds of articles and provide workshops for everyone. Please feel free to email me anytime with questions. I am also providing a tutorial that should help with navigating our site.

The very best to you,
Felicity Lee

Outside In

Post by Guest on 3/21/2013, 10:40 am

I don't know really how to question this because I am usually outside, the thinking has always been outside. Now, my therapist asked my newest Alter why we have to have different names, and Meia said it was because she was on the outside of me. That her goal is to bring it all inside, well Meia jumped inside so I could feel what it feels like to be the outside.

For the first time in a long time I do not question who I am. I am Joy, the rest are inside of me, but I am who the world sees.

The concern is I have no skills in how to manage the inside. I am cold and numb, yet I react to people's comments because there is no where to hide, and I have made the choice to avoid those who trigger me. This is a boundary Tick set before Meia took him inside.

I see my therapist tomorrow, and Joy gets to tell her what Meia has done. I get to tell her what I am doing.

I am working hard to assimilate.

Hey Joy, my name is Morgan. I have a lot of people living inside of me too. I am usually the one out but lately I've been having a very percocious alter named Bianca who is 18 hanging outside. Anyway, you are right, they aren't on the outside of your body, they are all you. Bianca is me. Sarah Anne and Sarah Sue are me. they are all me caught in a time travel sort of thing. Bianca thinks today is 1978 and tht's why she is the one who goes to college. Me, I get the job of shepherding the flock. You made a great leap forward by admitting to yourself who you are!! congradulations!! Your new friends Morgan and company



I love my Family of Choice, IG
