  1. Thanks, girls!
  2. Hello after silence-ers! Yes, yes, I know I've been gone for a looooong time (maybe some of you never noticed anyway...) and I'm back. I may not be on here regularly since I am in Mississippi doing needs assesment and helping out with Katrina victims and gutting houses in 100 degree weather. It's a lot of fun and a lot of hard work. But I'm an hour from New Orleans and I plan on having my cake and eating it, too. (wink) Everything's been going really well. In AmeriCorps, I've found confidence in a few close friends and it tuens out we have at least one thing in common: being a survivor. It's nice to chat with people who are going though exactly what you are and feel what you feel and are THERE for you, in the flesh. I'm feeling good and I'm happy. If any of you live in the South, you're familiar with the mutant mosquitos. I've gotten a zillion bites and I'm ouching and itching all over. And...oh yes, I found out what poison Ivy looks like. So I'm amused and I'm still having a good time. I couldn't be happier. I think I finally found the combination to get all my puzzle pieces in the right order. I'm finally truly, really, HONESTLY okay. So.. now that I've told you about me... HOW ARE YOU??

  8. I am at school, and there's been a lot of sh*t going on in my life recently. I've had three people die in less than a week, and I've just not been doing well in general. :/ I am giving up on all the forums I'm in, and I'm going to leave this one, too. But if any of you wonderful girls want to chat, feel free to drop me a line. AIM: lou in the sky MSN: YAH: theinseylindsay Take care, girls. xo Linds
  9. I'm from Chicago, and it's where my heart is, no matter where I am. But I am in Indiana for school, in the middle of cornfields. LOL.
  10. Thank you everybody for your warm welcome. I really appreciate it.
  11. I was browsing the internet for a research paper I am doing on the topic of the psychological effects of rape on an individual. My searches led me here. I am a survivor of sexual abuse myself, and it has recently come back to haunt me again. I hope I can help those who need it, and I hope that I can find the support I need here. Lindsay
