    on Sep 9, 2013 in Dissociation Hospital

    on Jun 30, 2013 in Dissociation Healing

  • Amulets
    on May 21, 2013 in Healing

  • Halloween, Part II
    on Nov 5, 2012 in Hospital Public Journal Safety
    On the day of Halloween, I was very much on edge. While I had planned for weeks and dealt with a steady stream of internal messages, I was still not prepared for what was to come. A conflict had been building for days about staying safe. That is n...
  • Halloween, Part I
    on Nov 4, 2012 in Dissociation Healing Self-Harm
    Halloween is a notoriously difficult time for me every year. Two years ago I wrote about how this time of year accompanies extreme activation of parts of me that deal with conflicts like life vs. death and good vs. evil. And every year my internal...
