“This month has been hard because all the things I’m learning have really been hitting me. Like in the education group about dysfunctional families, I realized that some of our actions and habits didn’t create a good environment for my kids. It is hard to think that I wasn’t doing the best I could for my children, but thankfully I can now. I’ve been talking with my therapist about what I’m learning and it’s helping me to feel better about how to move forward.

I hope that I’m able to start feeling better again. It’s really hard to deal with so many years of stress and trauma. I didn’t even know what to call it before, and now it has a name…and I’m working to do something about it.”
