You deserve every bit of love and encouragement that has been posted in response to your thread. You are precious and special and very courageous to share your story. There are many more eloquent responses here than I could ever come up with....but I know this...you are a blessing to those around you.
Hugs from someone else who understands parts of your story as I lived them too.
That is your past. I know how scared you are. I'm scared too, every day that I will go back to my own life. It's not a temptation, but I think I used to live like that, how do I live so easily without it now?
You have to grieve..watching your daughter is confronting, and knowing what you went through. I feel sad that mine is going to have a life I never had a chance at. That that got swept away, and she is going to have an amazing life that I can't relate to, ever. How am I going to guide her?
One day at a time. These are new lives we are living.
I know re. guiding them in a life you never knew. it freaks me out, I don't know what the 'normal' transition from childhood->teenagehood->adulthood is supposed to go?! Hugs to you, it's massive xx
Thanks so much, yes one day at a time xoxo Do I still have you on FB?
