  1. Emily Doe...the survivor of Brock Turner, has named herself. Be warned of a flurry of news coverage. I am being tagged in it everywhere, and I can't deal. She named herself for the EXACT same reasons I did. I made the media publish my name because my name is NOT victim, complainant, accuser, or alleged anything. Me asserting, "My name is Amy Stanley!" actually became the title of one piece. Crying in my office at work now after being tagged and reading. I can't take away her pain...and I can't take away mine. Feeling helpless and broken.

  3. Saturday's message:  It's OKAY!

    - to make mistakes
    - to have bad days
    - to be less than perfect
    - to do what's best for you
    - to be yourself

    Hoping everyone's having a good weekend.

    Love to you all!  :throb:

  10. I’ve lost all my friends. They are all gone. I have no one to vent and talk to when these thoughts are racing. I’ve been awake 3 days straight. I’m desperate for a conversation with someone but my parents are off limits and my boyfriend is already showing weird signs concerns but not saying so I can’t talk to him. I feel truly alone

      Thinking of you, @Brooklyn24 - you have us.  100%.  Please let us know how you're doing.  We're all thinking of you. By the way, I'm having some awful trouble with sleep lately, so if you're up late, give me a shout.  Sending safe, healing hugs your way.

  13.             Warped and Twisted

     

    Harsh words and violent blows,

    Hidden secrets no one knows,

    Eyes are open hands are fisted,

    Deep inside I'm warped and twisted.

    On my knees alive but dead,

    I look at all the blood I've bled,

    I'm not gone, my mind has drifted,

    Look at me I'm warped and twisted.

    Burnt out, wasted, empty, and hollow

    Today was yesterday's old tomorrow,

    The sun dies out the ashes shifted,

    I'm still here still warped and twisted.

      @4everme - it absolutely is a comfort to know we are not alone.  I'm sorry that not-so-pleasant circumstances have led you here, but do hope that being here will lead to peace, comfort and eventual healing.  You deserve it.  Thanks again for sharing your poem...it's very well written. :)  We are all here when you're ready to start talking about things - take all the time you need.

      I hope you laughed at their ignorance and stupidity.  That's what comments like that are chalked up to.  Please don't take them seriously.  Instead, you keep your head held up high, hang in there, and talk about whatever it is you need to talk about. You deserve to heal, and sometimes, the only way we can is to discuss it and give it the attention it warrants. :throb:  Sending hugs.

      Thank you, everyone.  I'm blessed to have you all in my pocket!

      @Hidden1 - honored to be your first pocket-ride!  You don't have to keep an eye on this page - to pocket-ride basically means keep a good thought for me.  I WILL be back here tomorrow night though to let everyone know how the day went.
