Guest Post – DID Myths and Misconceptions
Hello folks! This week I am honored and privileged to have permission to share a post from Beauty After Bruises‘ blog. I have had the pleasure of corresponding with the good people from BAB, and am very happy to be getting acquainted with them. Here’s a bit more about who they are and what they do. ...

Why Other People Can’t Fix Attachment Wounds

Why Other People Can’t Fix Attachment Wounds
Top of the morning to you. (Afternoon, evening…whatever it is…wherever you are.) I’ve been thinking a lot about the issue of why others can’t fix those of us who have deep unmet attachment needs left over from childhood.

I don’t remember too many specifics, but it cast a very revealing light on a lot of my struggles. I have combined some ...

Book Review in progress: Healing Developmental Trauma

Hey everybody. This is a pretty cerebral post (which ironically is a confirmation of my survival style, if you keep reading…haha), so I think we’re safe as far as TW’s go… So I started reading a new book last week called Healing Developmental Trauma, by Laurence Heller.  I’m only about halfway through it (or less), ...
