Don't rush yourself into "getting over it". If you are still feeling pain because of the past, it means that you haven't processed it / understood it yet. If it's any consolation, most people don't process things well: if they appear to have gotten over them it's because they distract themselves with other stuff. I respect that you're looking at this and talking about your feelings

I'm glad I finally wrote about it here though. I think it would be more helpful to talk about it with a friend in person. I'm afraid my sister would be mad at me now since I didn't tell her when it happened
. I'm also afraid of burdening other people with things that they can't really help with.
"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
