Dear Dolly daydreaming
I really appreciate your open and honest post and I hope you find the forums to be a safe and caring space for you to share.
Sending you positive energy to get through this difficult time. Hugs.
Dolly, I'm very sorry for all the abuse and neglect you've suffered.
It sounds hopeful that your daughter is connecting with you via Messenger and I Pray this relationship is rekindled in a kind, loving and accepting way.
You can also reach out and call 1800RESPECT and talk with a Counsellor who can put you through to a Trauma Psychologist 24h a day 7 days a week.
If you leave your name they can keep "notes" and updated with further issues or I hope PROGRESS.
They've been awesome with me and my family. They've made enormous positive differences to our journeys.
I hope they will for you too!
You may get the same or similar advice as I got ie to practice "radical self-care"!
I HOPE YOU CAN DO SOME self-care Dolly!
We have a thread of that name you can post on... as a prompter.
You are an extremely strong woman to achieve what you've achieved and survive all this!
I hope you can heal well enough to THRIVE very soon.
Please free to share whatever you want to in your journey.
