For First Time Visitors

If you are a first time visitor to this blog, I invite you to start from the beginning, especially if you are unfamiliar with the potential emotional impact of long-term child abuse.

Trigger caution to unhealed survivors!

Understanding the Incomprehensible

Children of incest or long-term sexual abuse grow up to be wounded adults with complicated emotional issues. Unfortunately, some symptoms are misinterpreted or often dismissed as "crazy", only serving to maintain a tormented victim status. We, as a society, have the power to change this dynamic. Each of us can make a difference.

A new voice (so to speak)

When I began this blog, its purpose was to provide an easy to follow series of posts to grasp an understanding of DID without being overwhelmed. As I've continued, I've gone past that goal and entered the world of healing from DID. I realize I've shifted the focus from speaking to those who do not know to those who are healing from DID. While therapists and support people are likely to be reading at this level of detail, I'm consciously choosing to shift the voice of the blog to the survivors.

Using my personal knowledge of healing, client work with healing, and shared colleague knowledge, my goal is to provide the basics of various healing techniques. What worked for me won't work for all, but it's a place to start. If anyone follows this blog (by clicking on Subscribe (I am not making my followers public for safety), and you have a question, you can ask me in a comment and provide me with your email to respond. Since I approve comments, I can see your question, get your email and not post it. That's the only safe way I have to be more involved. I can't be a therapist through the blog, but I can clarify something you don't understand. If you have a question that all survivors might benefit from, by all means post for the blog and I will answer there.

If anyone would like to see a particular topic covered, please let me know through the comments, which you can do anonymously. I'm approaching topics as they seem to be important. But, as we all know, it's possible for anything to come up at any time.

The past few posts have had some intensity. Thought you could use a break today.

Thank you for this blog. I've been upset all night, quit my T, just want to make it all go away. Then I come here and you sound so normal and ok. Wish I felt that way. I'm so tired.

You're welcome. Healing is such a roller coaster ride. Being soooo tired is a tough way to feel for a long time. I hope this is a safe place to come to feel supported for you and many others.

Thank you for sharing your healing and wisdom. I feel hope for the first time since I began my own healing journey. It is validating to know I am not alone.
