I sometimes envy people who are uneducated. I am referring to people who I have met who do not know what they don't know, so they simply don't worry about hardly anything at all. There is an almost…Continue

"MikeLong, your post appears to say your life is insignificant, puny. If so, I recommend a bit of narcissism. Enough to raise your self esteem; not enough to make you clinically interesting. "

"What I meant by isolated isn't that they were isolated from the world in terms of communication but rather in their style of leadership and the freedoms they had. Globalisation can be very successful without spreading human rights or democracy. "

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 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
