I once told my old therapist that having D.I.D is a very selfish thing to have but she didn’t answer so I wasn’t sure if she was agreeing or just didn’t have an answer. 
I never knew til I saw these words on Instagram today and drew my own picture that what I was really saying is how much you(all) have to self care or you just fall apart. I’ve always felt selfish about what we need to do to cope every day like taking time out(that is not done by choice i near collapse if i dont curl up under a blanket sometimes during the day), buying things for emotional comfort to carry in a bag or have at home to feel safe, avoiding social stuff you know you cant deal with, telling people what you need basically in order to survive the day. It’s all self-care not selfishness. .

Am off to help on the Angaza Beyond library 📚 team today. My journey isn’t always about the trauma because my life has so much more happening... what’s your passion? what do you really love 💖 to do? Even though right now some inside just want to curl up and stay in bed, we’ve got to ‘keep moving and doing’ ... .

I’m no expert but this helped heaps while waiting over the weekend for massage for head, neck, shoulders, back and upper arm pain and tension. Only do this if it’s safe for you and go very slowly and gently. Headaches were insane but eased up after doing this slow back stretch. .

in short: 8 years with last therapist, cut off immediately from our last day, the day she said we had to finish. no weaning, no follow up days to say goodbye. nothing. still grieving. nobody will ever know what we shared. Please don’t let this happen to you or you’re little ones inside. Find out about contact afterwards. Are you allowed to let them know how you are going? Find out about how your therapy will end. Don’t allow anyone to get too close to your little ones inside, make sure the younger ones and all of you  understand this person is temporary and not a parent figure if you are doing any reparenting work. Make sure you all get it (in your system) that they are not a parent!  Off to therapy today with our new psychotherapist to deal with it all. November is a trigger for us. It’s been a very painful month. .

I made weighted poo 💩 bombs to chuck at the demagorgans in therapy. Releasing the anger can be harder than you think especially if the demagorgans are your parents. Its not about hating them but getting angry at what they did. The demagorgans from Stranger Things represents the bad stuff that happened. . .

#triggerwarning ⚠️ taking on the demogorgans in therapy earlier this year! we shoot them with nerf guns or bury them in sand and its been the only way to deal with the pain so far, it took years to get to this point. it’s not easy getting angry at your parents, the people who are supposed to keep you safe. I grew up in the upsidedown was raised by #demagorgans. I made it out into a world that didn’t make sense at first and it was frightening and still is at times but a better world. 15 yrs in therapy and still going, $1000’s in therapy fees. That’s #childabuse The life of a survivor Why go public because parents need to get it that they can’t treat their kids like crap. if you can’t deal with parenting then get help! Your kids are people too, not bar#%<** or ass~?**%€s or any other discusting thing you can think of to call them, I hear these things said in shopping centres to kids as young as preschool or about teenagers. 
You don’t smash em, beat em or traumatise the hell out of them, you don’t take your anger out on them, just because you can. Discipline is one thing but using kids as punching bags for your frustration, anger, hatred, projection of your personal issues or simply because they came out the wrong sex, as in my case, is downright criminal. #GETHELP so your kids wont need to. .

"Mental pain is less dramatic than physical pain, but it is more common and also more hard to bear. The frequent attempt to conceal mental pain increases the burden: it is easier to say "My tooth is aching" than to say "My heart is broken." C.S. Lewis . . . . Trauma Survivor: .
