  1. i do think about it everyday, but it's more little flickers of it/him, rather than 24/7 like it was a couple years ago. what happened doesn't have control over me like it used to. the, for lack of better word, obsession is gone. i think it will be a while before i only think about it every once in a while, though.
  2. What Did You Do For You Today?

    A group of friends I have from work and I are sponsoring two families during the holidays, so this morning I went out and bought some more stuff for the families, and then went over to the house of one of the people helping out and we wrapped the presents, organized the food and presents, and baked cookies for the families. It wasn't technically for me, but it sure made me happy.

    I ate something. I took a long, relaxing bath. I smiled.
  4. Invalidation. Words Can Hurt!

    Comments made by my parents: "Why do you let this bother you so much? You need to get over it and move on." gee, thanks for that support you offered me When my mom first found out about it, she looked at me kinda wierd and said "So you didn't try and fight him, try and scream for help? I thought we taught you better. You should have done something." um, hello. knock knock, anyone in there? first of all, yes, I did try to get away from him at first. Second, I was 11 freaking years old and he was HUGE compared to me. Do you seriously think an 11-year-old that's scared shitless can fight off a grow man? Oh, im sorry. Ive only played it over a million times in my head, trying to figure out what I could have done differently. Youre really helping how I feel about this a lot, arent you. "Youre school work is number one right now. It is more important than anything else." Oh, right, im so sorry. I didnt realize that Im better off getting into a good college when my sanity isnt even in tact. And sorry that something might be just a little more important to me than my school work for once, ie whether or not Im alive tomorrow (i was suicidal when they said this). I could say more, but I think this is enough for now.
  5. What Did You Do For You Today?

    I decided to avoid a potentially really bad situation.
  6. Never Shy

  7. "after Silence"

    Wow...that was so beautifully put
  8. "after Silence"

    To me, after silence means having a family of people that you can love and trust and relate to you, who you know will never judge you and accept you just the way you are. It also means the beginning of healing and the breaking down of the sound barrier that survivors have between them and the rest of the world. It means healing. It means hope. Thank you all so much for you being who you are and being the amazing people you are!!! We can get through this!!!
