Comment on Reading Triggers, Mental Illness and (ugh) Amanda Lauren by Raymond Baxter.
What a beautiful piece of writing. And I agree. I’d have never ever written that I was raped if I hadn’t read other awesome and very real articles from that group. And to revisit my turmoil and put it to screen was so very empowering.
I feel, that despite the progress I have made as a writer since joining your group, and the help I’ve been given has been awesome, but the true progress has been one of the mind. I feel I stand taller and more confident now than I have ever done. And that is the true worth of the experience.
Stay awesome my friend 🙂

Healing My Story: Little Girl in the Woods
For me, it’s more-so been effective writing about a direct account of my trauma. Like this is what happened, now I’ll give you it in all its glorious detail.
Life Unplugged Can Mean Life Unhinged
Great thoughts. I think I’ll be doing something similar to this, this summer. If I can afford it.
I want to take Alex out like I used to! Not him on Xbox and me working here. And Nats getting frustrated at both of us!!
Learning to Say No
Exactly right! A hard lesson I had to learn also. Too often were my boundaries non-existent and my life laid bare for others to trample on. Saying “no” to me was absolute. I’ve never liked absolutes. I still don’t, only when discussing friendships or relationships. That’s the only absolutes I have.
Yet saying “no” I have learned through life is only a stop-gap whilst I collect myself to have the power to go on. Like you say.
Lovely post 😀
Journey to Next World
Very first time I’ve ever read your fiction. I must admit. I enjoyed that 🙂
