It's been a while since a one of these memes hit me this hard. I've been saying this exact thing since I got out. The only way to describe it is that the person I once was DIED and a new one formed in her place. I share memories with that earlier "me" but not much of the emotional content of them. Except for the trauma memories, THOSE I got in full, emotions and all. I'm not sure I'd call it "healing" into someone else, took a long time but once I realized that it was truly a matter of survival I was able to get help to accept it. It's wasn't easy and sometimes it's still fucking hard but if I can get through it, so can YOU. We're here to help you on that journey.
