have had a bad weekend...sickness and all the stuff going on here...turmoil within extended family...trying to decide whether to move or not...but then, a ray of light...

my husband has started reading victims no longer. he was only supposed to read one chapter, but he's read about three, i believe. we talked a little about it, but mostly he just wanted to think about it for awhile. BIG step for him.

he was pretty struck by the dissociation. he didn't know what it was called. do non-survivors normally dissociate?

i know everyone is feeling disallusioned here right now, so i wanted to share something very positive that has come from my support from this community.


I was silent as a child, and silenced as a young woman; I am taking my lumps and bumps for being a big mouth, now, but usually from those whose opinion I don't respect. - Sandra Cisneros
