Hello everyone, and new subscribers! As an adjunct to my mental health-related writing projects, I’m building extensive resources on Pinterest. Yes, it’s been awhile since I posted these boards here, but I want to get back into a routine of offering resources as they are completed.


Today I’ve released the new “ACEs” [Adverse Childhood Experiences] board for your perusal. Research is increasing...

“Being in a state of denial is a
universally human response to
situations which threaten to
overwhelm. People who were abused
as children sometimes carry their
denial like precious cargo without a
port of destination. It enabled us to
survive our childhood experiences, and often we still live in survival mode decades beyond the actual abuse. We protect ourselves to excess because we learned abruptly and painfully that no one else would.”
Sarah E. Olson, Becoming One: A Story of Triumph Over Dissociative Identity Disorder

“I spent most of my life believing l
was crazy because all the crazy things I experienced in childhood were treated as nonexistent or normal. This belief colored every decision made, from something so basic as what to wear today, to the more esoteric boundaries of whether I should kill myself. I understood very well that killing myself under the wrong circumstances would establish my insanity forever. So I analyzed every word, every gesture, before committing myself. (Which probably accounts for why I am alive today.)”
Sarah E. Olson, Becoming One: A Story of Triumph Over Dissociative Identity Disorder

“The reality is, no matter what you were told, whatever happened to you as a child was not legally or morally your fault. Abused children are instilled with guilt regarding their "participation." It's an especially complex issue if the abuser is a family member. The child is told and believes that by his word his family will disintegrate, or harm may descend upon other loved ones. He fears he will lose more by telling than not.”
