I did and then had my nervous breakdown. I am learning how much the sexual abuse played in my nervous breakdown. It was difficult to trust anyone, thinking they were out to get me. I am over that but still facing other challenges the abuse left me

Beautiful work. There is a way in which you allow us with the gentle music and some positive pictures to move beyond the violence in others. I needed a little warmth for myself this morning beyond my body pains, and your video gave me some. Thanks.

Hi iaccus. Have you met with a psychiatrist? You may be bipolar and that is treatable. But take whatever I say with a grain of salt as I am not a doctor. I hope you enjoy your time with your son this weekend. Mike

Thanks Victor. There is so much about what happened that I'm just starting to grasp. Have been reading about chloroform too. The margin between being fully anesthetised and being dead is quite narrow. It's not the instant knock out drug as portrayed

Thanks, makes sense. I found two meditations and both hit home. These two days are just that, two days. I need to stick to the plan agreed to on Monday. Even when things happen stress wise, right after another each one in it's self is just that.

HD, you have needs. Set aside the CSA for a moment, set aside the love for a moment, and ask yourself what your response would be if anyone else was not fulfilling your needs. If it was anyone else, how long would you continue to allow a situation wi
