Aftermath

I'm in the midst of a deep depression, and I have been trying to figure out why. I know why. Every little mile stone time wise is a reminder of the 2nd child I would have had... And perhaps the only other child I would have had...I have had a very hard time with this because I know the people on TA would say (did say) it was for the best. I already have one abusive baby's daddy to contend with for the rest of my life, I didn't need a bipolar homicidal rapist in addition to that. It's hard…See More

What do you do when you hurt?

I am hurting. A lot. There's no sugar coating it. I need to laugh....or something.So here's my question: What do you do when you hurt? When you feel like the ball in your throat won't go away, your eyes will not stop crying, and your heart feels like it's been ripped out of you?How do you cope? I'm looking for actions you take. Hopefully some humorous answers too. Something to make me smile, or to make others smile who are feeling the same way.See More

Nirvana at last...or something like it

Posted on September 8, 2014 at 1:25am 0 Comments

"In the Buddhist context nirvana refers to the stillness of mind after the fires of desire, aversion, and delusion have been finally extinguished" A still mind does not necessarily need to be without conflict, worry, doubt, or even feeling. It doesn't mean that you've reached some kind of metaphorical floating on clouds, or earthly heaven. It doesn't mean you are necessarily even happy. 



When you suddenly realize the simplicity of life...And the simplicity of yourself. When you… Continue

Self-Awarenss: The only way to recover

Posted on August 20, 2014 at 2:54am 1 Comment

I have come to realize that not everything about me can be changed. I had hopes that I would one day be "healed"......I will never be healed. But I will be self-aware.



I have given up the notion that my brain will heal and go back to a pre-trauma state. I suppose it could happen if I continue down my road to recovery, but I can no longer "wait" to be "healed" before I start living life again. I have lost precious years of my life. I have blocks of my life that I do not remember, but… Continue

Reflections of an Atheist Mother

Posted on August 4, 2014 at 3:30am 3 Comments

My son's birthday is today. It makes me smile and cry at the same time. Watching him grow and change has been the biggest gift and privilege of my life. I remember exactly 3 years ago I sat at the very table that I am sitting at now, vigorously researching the best schools that I could possibly send him to when he started kindergarten. I was deeply torn between sending him to a Christian school, and sending him to a bilingual school...I reasoned that I could teach him about God at…
