Thank you Starlight, i am trying to rebuild relationship with my children but not doing a very good job, i am really struggling, i do not talk to them about how i feel i just put a smile on and pretend everything is ok however when i get home i cry because it is not the same. I have met new friends but then feel they all want something from me in some way and it is not real friendship. I have CPTSD which leads to me being very distrustful of people, which is catch 22. I am a very considerate person in fact to considerate according to my therapist, which results in me only ever seeming to end up with needy people as friends. It would be so nice to meet people who dont just take but give something back, i.e a two way friendship, this is something that has happened all my life however i wasnt aware of it until all this happened. So i am reluctant to meet new friends but then i miss having friends 🙁 Sometime ignorance is bliss 🙂
