It's taken a while, yet I am posting my first thread on BB's Forum!  One of the important lessons I have learned through seeing a counsellor for 3 years now, is that healing takes time.  And how much time, is dependent on each individual's experience/s.  The counselling has been a life-saver, though now I believe/feel it is the right time to reach out and have contact with others who are travelling a similar road, and establish a network of support.  I am always in awe when reading some of the posts, at how courageous those individuals are - to share their vulnerability and experiences.....and hopefully access support and compassion as a result.
