  1. Wow! I’m with yer! But one would have to live on the moon to be that free no? The biggest problem is usually the people around you wanting to envelope you in their own insecurities I find.

    1. Say, family? lol. When it comes to what I see as growth and positive changes I’ve made in my life, it’s been family members who’ve had the hardest time accepting it. Then I realized…they don’t have to. Now trying to get someone to publish something I write about this growth and awareness, that’s another story!

        1. Well, my therapist says a book, but I’d be happy with getting an essay published. Just one. Doesn’t even have to pay. It’s on my bucket list. A part of me is drawn to (dreaming of) the idea of being a columnist in a magazine (physical or online) someday.

  2. For years I’ve told friends that if I ever get married it’ll be a nudist wedding. None have as of yet said they will attend. Hahaha

    1. You’re welcome. It does wonders to be appreciated, doesn’t it? Yes, when I saw the chick with the “tat,” I had to use it. I’m feeling it more now…peace.

    1. LOL. Don’t be so hard on yourself. And what public decency? πŸ˜‰ People can’t be bothered to return a smile or hold open a door for another anymore. I meant naked metaphorically-speaking–for the most part. Here in the US, we’re so afraid of the wrong things, IMHO. Sex, sexuality, and nudity so taboo here, though we’re avid voyeurs, aren’t we? As long as we don’t get caught.

      1. Well, I’m not claiming to be high and mighty or anything but I still hold doors for some people when my family go out shopping but on the other hand you are right for the most part so ill call a spade a spade there. But other than that this is a really interesting place you’ve got here. And If I have my mind in the right place for the rest of this summer then I just might check out this blog a bit more over the month. ( Don’t hold me to that though.) But anyways see you around and have a lovely summer! P.S. I hate smiling.

    1. I do? Wow, thank you. Here I am dying of boredom in suburbia counting the days till my move in the hopes of getting a life! You’re the actor/artist…that’s another dream, to act again. Let me get moved in to my new place first…;)

  3. Just read your post in Kurt Brindley’s Blog. Your description of your Journey towards Recovery so closely mirrors mine. I am not a writer, The experiences that I could no longer cover, ‘unremember’ exploded out and bury themselves again.. back ‘n forth. I’m nuts ‘n I’m not. LOL. Your story described what I have not been able to put into words. After misdiagnosis I now know I am Journeying through Complex PTSD. Pills and “Peggy” as well. I did have ECT at least 10yrs ago & It really did help when I thought I’d never get out of bed or be able to ‘stop myself’. Thank you for those words.. I hope you share them elsewhere so others know they are not alone.. and have hope. Do you have a blog specific to that Journey. One Day I will post on mine… Thank you!!

    1. Please give me a little time to respond to your comment. And thank you so much for sharing your battles with wretched PTSD with me. Sending peace, peace, and more peace your way.

  4. πŸ™‚ Lots of time.. In a good spell at the moment – Would almost think I am the Wonderful Successful High Achiever I Used to be. Don’t want/need that anymore. In this moment there is peace πŸ™‚

    1. I’ve never been able to achieve it πŸ˜‰ I’m so glad to hear you’re in a good spell and at peace at the moment. That’s where we should always live–in the moment. I know it’s easier said than done. And I’m here if you need to talk. My mental illness posts are jumbled in with everything else here at the 43YOV. Look under “Chronic” if you’d like to read more. Or “Rants.” πŸ˜‰

Lack of communication is unhealthy.
