I told on myself in therapy today. I said I had been getting into some social media and responding to deniers. I'll step away from that, because in talking about it, the Fawn Response took on more merit. I've decided that there is a lot of merit in t

some of the statements that have been made have made their point with me. In almost every situation I get involved in...the first thing I do is ask "what was my part in causing this". The second question is obviously: "what do I need

@Echoes you are minimizing the impact she had on you. Although she did not go to the extent that other perps went, she was in a position of authority and trust and she used her power over you. A person in a position of power such as a therapist can i

Fear that the wrong people will find out. Fear of what friends I will have left after everyone knows. Fear of being loved, and being too emotionally close to anyone. Fear that my kids would probably reject me if they ever found out. Fear of being alo

It's like Chester is just settling, a brother survivor, and now Dolores, again, whom I only learned after, is one of us. It gets to me, it really gets to me, that I've listened for decades, and not known. What that means for me, is hearing songs' tru

It's been a few days, and there's so much going on, I wanted to say how much I cared. I will miss Delores O'riordan, one of us, a survivor. I'll miss the Cranberries. She became a deep part of what I listen too. This one always caught me, and I didn'

I have just this week realized that I fear people not believing me. And not just about abuse but anything. I am scared that regardless of what is the reality or truth of the matter, they won't believe me.
