How do you cope with the shattered sense of self?

by JB, Member

I'm sure it's different for each different person, but right now, this is how it's feeling for me: my sense of self may be shattered, but as I begin picking up the pieces to fit them back together again, I find I'm holding in my hands new pieces that I never had before, and the new pieces seem to fit right where all the gaps in my old sense of self used to be. I feel that when I'm done, I might well feel whole for the first time in my life.
