Entries in Throwback Thursday (1)


Throwback Thursday

I've written so many blog posts over the past 9 years that I can't possibly remember them all. I don't, in fact, remember writing many of them. Even the subject or title of the post looks foreign to me when I come across it while lollygagging on my blog. This is to be expected when you have separate parts writing your truths.

Sometimes I read an old entry, and  it takes me back to what was happening in my life during the time it was written. I might recall the series of steps or slowly awakening realizations that led me to embrace a long buried truth, or realize something about my childhood that I'd never before considered from a particular angle.

In honor of this crazy journey I've been on for decades as I've attempted to unravel the mystery, not only of my past, but of myself as well, I'll be republishing some of my older posts.

I'd like to initiate Throwback Thursday (hopefully I can remember it each week), and I'll start today's with this post from my original DID blog.
