  1. I've been feeling like a wild animal lately, a stray cat with a compass. Thank you for your kind words. In my 20s my favorite word was autonomy. Now in my 30s my favorite word is agency. 

  2. I haven't been able to read or respond to your posts lately but I just wanted to let you know I love you and care about you. We don't talk much but I do think about you from time to time. I hope you have good people in your life with good food and good shelter. 💚💜💙

      Thanks for your message@wolfennights , that's really sweet. I do have those things, I'm very fortunate really. Hope you are doing okay :)


  3. ❤️ (short on words but thank you for the times you responded to my posts)

  4. Hi, i saw that you were a mother. Would i be able to ask you for some advice?

    1. TatteredSunflower


      Sure! Though I will be honest - I'm a lil bit tipsy at the moment. So if you'd rather I wait til tomorrow to respond, please just tell me that. No offense taken. 

  5. Okay Home Alone is a hella more frightening as an adult woman.

      I haven't watched it since I was a kid, so I don't even remember it much. I'll take your word for it though! :lol: 

  6. Hi, how are you doing today? Did you have a good Thanksgiving?

    I'm proud of you for showering and reaching out for help here. There will be good days and bad days. Just know that whatever you need to feel is acceptable here. And you don't need to go into the details all at once. I'd love to be a part of your support system too, but i cant promise i'll always know what to say.
  8. The more I see you post the more I'm reminded of Chanel Miller and want you to meet her. :) Her memoir has been a major source of healing for me, as has been this community. The publicity and news articles make it feel so emotionless and impersonal. I couldn't pay attention to the news articles, especially since her assailant is from my hometown (technically, I've lived here ten years which is the longest I've lived in one state).

      @wolfennights That is quite a compliment. Thank you so much. I want to read her memoir when I can. 

  9. I used to wonder that. Then I let myself think about it. I talked to friends. I asked what lies I learned from it. I changed the ending, reassured myself I deserved to be saved. I imagined kid me being saved by my modern day heros, them wiping my face clean and hugging me and taking me to their parents' house for food. I painted and let myself think of the painting. It's still there. I still cry or get angry. IDK if I've ever gone a day without thinking about it. But it's different now. And I think that's enough for now.
  10. What kinda name for a tv show is "naked and afraid"???

      I know. I don't like it. I will never watch it.

      Such a poor choice of words for a show title, but I guess that type of stuff sells. 🤷‍♀️

  11. I just wanted to leave a nice note here. I think of you every now and then when i think of this site. How its helped me. You may not feel it right now but you are stronger than anyone who has ever hurt you. And if you are a little tadpole darting around frantically, a goldfish in a plastic bag of water getting used to the temperature of the pond water, or a caterpillar putting on its dozens of shoes, those are all okay. 💜🌺🍀

  12. So long, bed bugs! Hope you enjoyed being burnt to a crisp in my hot car in the sun!

    1. Finchy


      Haha! Good riddance!

      Hate those creepy crawlies! My dad's house was infected years back and I would get the bites. Oh, I hated them!  I was very lucky tho, not to transfer to my home.

      Glad you were able to kill them with the sun. ☀️

  13. Thank you for your responses to my posts. I don't usually have the energy to respond to everyone unfortunately. I just recognized your name once or twice.

      No worries Wolfennights… I hope I can be helpful sometimes. I think you’re doing well with complicated, difficult stuff. You have such a good heart and so much strength 🌟💙
