Buffalo, it is cool that you have learned to publicly speak about your experiences. In doing so, I am certain you have helped others. I had a literal dream just a few nights ago that I was before an audience and speaking on the abuse. It was tough in my dream, so I am certain it must be tough in the real world. Good for you… and for those who hear you speak.
…and Puffer- some days it would be nice to temporarily erase the memories..just for a short period of time.
For now we see through a glass, darkly.
