Check out this article about the Fifty Shades of Grey phenomena, including a list of organizations which strongly oppose this sick trend, and have implemented various means of helping women who have been sexually victimized.


Were you raised by a narcissist? Chances are you were if you suffered any form of childhood abuse. The Little Red Survivor website is filled with excellent articles examining the many faces of narcissism.

Kate Is Rising has an excellent Survivors Resources page which directs you to numerous websites dealing with issues of abuse, healing and recovery. Please bear in mind that the information on these pages may be triggering.



There's lots of good stuff at the Dissociation Blog Showcase, including a list of 180 blogs dealing with some aspect of this disorder. 



On the Overcoming Sexual Abuse site there's an article entitled, "It's Not About You Mom" which I could have written myself. I bet many of my readers could say the same!

Hi Dreamer,

Your journal is well put together, and an interesting read. Thanks for visiting my journal on Blogger.

I really love coming to here to just read over and over the different blogs. The words are comforting in that just knowing that I am not alone and (sadly) there are others who understand the often confusing aspects of being DID. Thank you for getting this out there.

You have touched the hearts of many with this wonderful website you have created. Their are many talented people among us, and the ones I most admire are talented writers like yourself who chose to cover the subjects about issues that really matter. I tried to put you on my follow list so I would be updated with all new entries. But I think your journal is set up different, so I was not able to do that.

Thank you so much for sharing your life and experience with DID. We love blogging and had been wanting to do it again after leaving it behind for awhile. You helped spur us on to start our own blog about living with DID.. People need to know that those of us with DID aren't crazy, we're survivors in the hugest sense of the word. Enjoy your autumn!

I didn't know you have a guestbook. How cool.
For those who don't yet know it, this blog is a precursor to a dream fulfilled. Wait and watch . This is about to go from good to great.

Hi CC,

It's good to know someone uses the links I put up. You just never know what might prove useful to someone!

Thank you for posting the link for the Bill of Right for people who self harm. It was very helpful!!

Wow, Natasha--are you just buttering me up so I'll tell you the secret of good bread making?!

Well, I had to laugh when you said I probably already know what a great writer I am. Ha, you obviously haven't the same sense of writer's insecurity as I do, or you wouldn't say that.

I like your writing style, so please don't give up. If it's in your blood you won't anyway.

I'll be very glad to have you hanging out here just as often as you like. When I'm not so tired (it's after midnight here) I'll see if I can give you some bread making tips.

Thanks again for stopping by and for all your kind comments,

Hi there,

I just stumbled across your blog, read a few of your posts, and had to tell you that you are an amazing author (of which I am sure you're already aware.) However, let me tell you: You know that 'near-holy' experience that you mention, that comes with reading something so beautifully and lyrically written, so diffused with truth that it makes your heart ache? Well that quality is all over your blog here. Reading your entries makes me brim with all sorts of emotions, the greatest of which is probably awe... I always hoped to be a great writer one day - or a clever writer at least, but the talent never found me. I write anyway, and suspect I always will. That, for now, is enough for me anyway.

I'll probably stick around here, if that's okay with you... You seem like a great influence, and someone I could do well to keep up with.

Kind Regards,
