Paterno Corruption


Yeah, reading it. He's all for LIFE IN JAIL FOR PEDOPHILES. I dig it. I did read Penn State itself let Sandusky get away with it because Sandusky was pimping the boys out to alumni when they donating large sums of money. That's not be proven but somehow it made total sense to me.

What this guy is writing sounds exactly like the Catholic Church.

He's very fortunate to have gotten help young. Lucky SOB.

He wrote:
"The general steps survivors use to integrate their past traumas, to shift from victims to survivors to thrivers, include:

1. Revealing secrets and fragments of one's person with licensed, trained and highly regarded / trusted professionals

(Where the fuck do you find those? 13 Ts and I couldn't find one!!!).

Trust is a huge, if not the biggest, issue with survivors. Trust happens when one person knows he or she is safe with someone, or a group. They won't hurt the person when he or she is vulnerable. Predators exploit this trust and use feigned interest and phony gestures to confuse their victims. The goal in recovery is to combine all of one's parts to live as one whole, functional, person with the process to this outcome being assisted by trustworthy and competent counseling professionals.


2. Identify cognitive distortions - fears and criticisms cultivated by the perpetrator and the experience can undermine one's ability to live an autonomous and empowered life. Victims often inaccurately believe they are subservient and dependent on someone more powerful. Healthy survivors separate facts from opinions and live in the current moment, feeling empowered and in control of their destinies.

3. Identify deleterious behavior patterns (submissive or aggressive) fostered by these distortions and choose more positive actions and outcomes with better plans in the present moment. It is important for survivors to recognize the source of their actions, so they can consciously choose better actions. The better outcomes foster better actions and the constructive behavior cycle grows stronger.

4. Integrate one's healthy sense of self with other healthier people to maintain an integrated, whole, functional, mature perspective.

When needed, a combination of talk therapy and pre>

Some of the PTSD symptoms victims may experience include intrusive thoughts, difficulty in distinguishing truth from fiction, hyper vigilance, increased levels of anxiety, fear, and panic, short and long term memory deficits, sleep disruption, and dissociative symptoms. These symptoms keep victims from moving on and living a fulfilling life. Tragically, without constructive intervention, many victims end their lives early.


Wow.... the only ones on that list (From the article Rob posted) is "difficulty in distinguishing truth from fiction".

Still working though!

Thanks for the article Rob, I fully intend to pass it on!

Nowhere else have I read or heard that PTSD sufferers have "difficulty in distinguishing truth from fiction." Where did THAT come from?

John,

I thought some of his stuff was crap. I think we know more about truth and fiction than anyone.
