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!

Grace this is a wonderful insight. It never ceases to amaze me how much memory had to be lost in order to survive.
I really appreciate the Falling Awake From Amnesia video.
Take care, hope PT is going well.
I am learning so much from the archives, Thanks again.

Last Monday it was the 40th anniversary of Apollo 11 landing on the Moon, and then the first Moon Walk.
As my husband and I watched a couple of history shows, I turned to him and we talked about how those men or their families would act or what they would say if confronted by those who don't believe it happened.

It really clicked for me, the ludicrousness, of not believing that repressed memories break through.

You are a consummate leader. You are a pillar.
It is my privilege to have found you and to have association with you.
Thank you for all that you do.

How I relate to this. My kids are always amazed when I watch something I've seen many times before and still react as if I had never seen it: gasping at all the scary places; laughing like crazy at the funny things. I always say, "well there are new people on board who haven't seen it". My DID is no secret in my family.
