    This website and reading books has helped me a great deal emotionally. With that being said, I am trying to find a therapist truly experienced in the area. There is no one lusted on the resources for my state through this site. After a pretty negative experience with my state’s crime victim’s rights department after a month I have gotten two names one of which doesn’t take my insurance and after reading about the other does not appear to specialize at all in abuse trauma and grief. When I try to sort using my insurance website for areas they treat it just seems like they are checking off most categories. Does anyone have any guidance on how I can find someone? Thanks for your help forum friends!

    Thank you lovefraud friends:) There are so many barriers to trying to pull yourself together after this abuse. Avoiding victim blaming, trying to get police and da to prosecute, victims assistance got a new coordinator who says they only provide counseling to sexual and physical assault victims, finding a therapist that takes your insurance that you know is experienced jn the area, not telling family or friends for fear if blaming the victim and personal embarassment, the bank quickly sending me back out the door with my check that was too old from the sp, fearing for personal safety, and on and on. My god I had no idea what people went through. It has been really hard. This will have been the hardest thing I will ever go through in my life. I realize though that after going through all the texts and other evidence i am getting ready for the police to try to make my case that i am a really good person. Seriously. And, my strength is that i have always been able to pull myself together and get things done that need to be done. Even though i may be sick to my stomach from stress and trembling half the time. God bless us all. I guess thats why they say we are resilient!
