I’m just looking for a place to vent my thoughts with folks that have experienced verbal, mental, emotional and physical abuse as a child at the hands of family members. I recently reconnected with my sister and she brought a lot of suppressed memories to the surface and it’s causing severe insomnia. I’m having my own issues dealing with my parents and now this! I’m overwhelmed and angry. My depression, anxiety and bi-polar illness is taking a beating. I’m exhausted but can’t sleep. I can’t talk to my folks because they are the perpetrators and will never accept responsibility and will mock me and give an attitude. My sister apologized for her part in the physical and mental abuse but I feel like I have whiplash since we just reconnected and she’s dumping all her guilt and asking for forgiveness before I can even process everything. I feel like I need to self medicate in order to escape and sleep peacefully. But I have a job that needs my full attention and a mortgage to pay!! I can’t afford to start taking meds to help me sleep. It’s 2:58AM and I’m wide awake.

Well, I guess it is better to distance a bit from your sister again. She should understand that these things just come and go.
