Sorry for my absence for the past 2 years

I've not written a blog for close to 2 years, due to some comments I had gotten stuck on a loop in my brain during mental health month the other year regarding my one blog publication. The odd thing is, my therapist loved it. He had said he was proud of me for bringing frankness… Continue reading Sorry for my absence for the past 2 years

Needing to be heard

I've been quiet. My goal back in December, when I started to blog was to do it 5-6/7 days a week. I'd like to lend my knowledge of life experiences and circumstances to those going through a similar situation through my written word. This is one of the reasons I was re-trained, while being on… Continue reading Needing to be heard

Resharing about C-PTSD and nightmares

For those of you who have read this in the past two days already, thank you. It was nice to share with you. I am re-sharing this because I published it less than 24 hours before the big Superbowl, and I don't think it got out to too many people.

I’m a Guinea Pig
