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 moment is everything

I just recently made this connection. We are so surprised when we "wake up" and realize a few memories from the past have comprised our entire history. How did this happen? I figured this out in watching previously seen movies and tv shows with my BB. i wouldn't watch a movie a second time citing "I've already seen it". but sometimes BB wanted to watch and I was fine because I was lost in Polyvore. But then, even though I had seen the show before, I wasn't remembering any of the details. I recalled a blip of a scene and that meant it was enough for an entire memory. That's when i translated that to my life. A flash of a second of something accounted for an entire vacation but really had no other conscious details. Pretty bizarre.

The good news is I can rewatch stuff and see something different each time now. Will enter hopefully helpful posts until I can getter into the deeper things I uncovered during fusion. Thanks to all who have been waiting!
