I am almost 42 and still haunted by abuse, rape, no closure to my dad's death, several life threatening addictions and the insatiable void from within. I have been through therapy several times, in the hospital many times, on too many meds to count, involved in a church prayer group,etc.. and I feel more broken and empty than ever. There must be something so wrong with me that I am doomed.

NO you are not doomed!! It's such a long process to heal from all of this. I am trying to heal myself to. I am not way down the road in recovery and have a perfect life or anything trust me. I am realizing alot and feel changes. I to have thought this way. Like Okay I need a full time counselor to live with me.

I was reading a book last night and it hit so many notes. Like we have to quit being the victim. Take back our power. Not let another person or event define who we are.

The core seems to be is low self esteem and low self worth. I am really trying to find ways to heal that.

Forgiveness is also a big one. Forgiving ourselves. Taking responsibilty to.

I just want to be their and feel better. I dont'know if it applys to your situation, but I have read Codependent no more. I am trying to change me.

You are a good person, and remember you are not alone. Many of us here have similar experiences and through talking about it you sometimes find things that trigger, and help.

I wish you the best.

There is a time when you finally realize those of us need to admit "there are no victims only volunteers" It helps me alot when I get down on myself to remember those really bad days. If there weren't any bad days, we wouldnt be able to embrace and appreciate the good ones. teaching ourselves self forgiveness is powerful!

I think we are only stay stuck when we stay in denial. Obviously you are here so you are trying to make sense of everything.

I to have had alot of problems dealing with abuse in my past. I am learning to not be a victim anymore. I am working on my self Esteem. I have found alot of things on this site to be inspirational and a lot of things to by eye openers. Just keep going forward.
