Banana Peak 7.5 months later

SnowDude went with me to dayclimb Banana Peak. On Memorial Day 2009, I was attacked by a trusted friend at the end of this hike. I'm living with PTSD and trying to get my life back. The man who attacked me is not the man I knew, and since I was able to talk to him after I woke up (I thought I was dead), I am able to forgive him. My therapist in Australia had me make a list of things at home that would cause anxiety. I checked off a few this weekend looking for closure.

Recovery from what you experienced is I'm sure going to be a long, and difficult row to hoe. Good to see you are facing your fears, moving forward and staying strong.

Keep smiling. :D

Oh, and more Sierra trip reports, plz. I've been going through withdrawal since you started your extended stays Down Under! [-o<

I missed the initial news, but got filled in last summer. I have no idea what you are going thru, I would offer more support, but I don't want to crowd you. Good and happy thoughts your way Cori. I hope you can work this all out, such a pretty, young lady, someone who is a great person with a great personality. I describe you to people as someone who always has a smile on their face.:) Take care.
Piece of cake.
