Why is “Treatment Resistant” a Thing?
I wanted to write about the term “treatment resistant” since I’ve heard it so much and have had it applied to me for various things and at various times. But when I went to read about it, I was surprised by what I found. Firstly, most of the time when it was used about me, ...

Breaking Contact vs. Breaking Connection
Hey guys. I’m “back” – sort of.  I’m trying to be.  First, some news.  I didn’t go out of my way to broadcast it to everyone in my network (that’s never wise about any kind of news, in my experience), but I’m making it known now that it’s been over for awhile and so that ...

The Complete Written Interview
Now that the radio documentary is out, I thought it might be informative to post the full and complete written interview with Sue Reece.  Since I’m a writer and they had time restraints, I wrote excessively (I’m sure that’s hard to imagine *wink wink*) and they used what they wanted for the documentary.  I have ...

**TW** for some talk about G*d (nothing extensive)   Hey everybody, This is the time of year that’s usually VERY VERY HARD for SRA/RA survivors.  Despite that, because of some amazing recent breakthroughs and etc, I’m doing WELL!  Like really well! Nevertheless, it’s also the busy season at my day job, and I just haven’t ...

Sabbatical, and in Jade’s Defense

EDIT:  I can’t deactivate FB until the petition is over. But we will not be engaging there except for a select 1-2 people. This is Tasha; for anyone who doesn’t know we’re a multiple, yeah. Hi. I’m Jade’s sister. I need to get a few things off my chest, and please hear me, here:  if ...

Survivor Advocacy and Activism

Hey everyone. I’m sorry I haven’t written in awhile. I’ve been doing a few other things and haven’t had much time to post.  In case there’s anyone who isn’t aware of the petition going on right now, I started a petition on Change.org to ask for the requirements for Master’s level psych degrees to change. ...

Upward Shifting

14. April 2015 Uncategorized 0
The only thing I can really count on around here is that things are always changing rapidly.  There’s always a lot going on internally (and externally, no doubt), so all the moving parts of my life make for a wild ride. 😎 You guys, things are looking up. I’ve had some massive integration recently, and ...

Object Constancy, Adult Version

Object constancy in adults is not something that I can find a whole lot of info about, other than a few books that I don’t have time to read at the moment, which I’m not going to link to at this time.  So I’m just going to write about my experience in hopes that it ...

The Trouble with Triggers

I realize that talking about triggers might be…um…triggering, but in that vein, I made up something pretty ridiculous in order to tone it down.  And once again, I am trying to work some things out, mentally, so I’m mostly writing to see if I can come to a better conclusion than I had come to ...

Late Night Thoughts – Therapy

Therapy, or “healing,” as we cryptically call it, is a strange thing. You mutually agree, at least for awhile, to have another person be your projection screen, your scratch pad, your mirror, your sounding board, your safe place, your containment, your own personal headspace specialist, your unbiased/ unfiltered (or at least differently filtered) perspective, your ...

The Price

Today, everything just feels like too much.  I was blindsided by this feeling.  Didn’t really see it coming.  Halloween is over.  Now that I’m out from under my family of origin, the holidays suck much less than they could. I’ve even had some fun times this year already. There is nothing unusually stressful about this ...

Physiological Challenges

So as I wrote about recently, I’ve been making some profound discoveries through Laurence Heller’s book Healing Developmental Trauma. This has brought up several of what would seem to be “side” issues, which nevertheless seem pretty big, so that’s where I’ve been camping out, trying to unpack everything I need to absorb in these places ...

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), ...

My Current Attachment Mess

This post is probably going to be a mess because basically I’m trying to work some things out mentally, and if you haven’t noticed by now, I process by writing. Stay or go, whichever.  I’ve worked to make this post more generic, because although I don’t know most of my readers personally, I do have ...

On holidays and chaotic working models

Since the holidays are here, I’ve had a couple good conversations with people about what they do – or don’t – like about them.  Interestingly and unsurprisingly, their current feelings have everything to do with how things were during the holidays in their childhood.  If they had happy experiences back then, with traditions they enjoyed, ...

Multiplicity and Medical Care

****TW**** This post contains some mild discussion of d*ctors, medical issues/procedures, ritual ab*se, psychosomatic symptoms, etc. And also one mention of a very minor injury (minor, but bl**d is involved in the story)…                                 This is my first time publishing ...
