how do I begin to heal? I have lived in trauma for most of my life. I have had numerous abortions, ones that i have initiated myself and ones that I was coerced into. Now I have one child at age seven and she and I suffer in our relationship. Im a single parent and I feel as though I have been blessed and guided because I am in awe at the fact that I am still alive and live to tell my tales both of horror and hope. I want to heal. I dont know how. I have never reached out to anyone but I want to start. Please give me some guidance. I want to become stronger and I want to help others.
