Poetry In Motion: Alone in the Darkness

Alone Darkess Feeling alone being alone Empty

Thoughts of him.
Heart beating.
Beats fast.

Stop Childhood Sexual Abuse NOW!

Every time you turn around, it seems there is more scandal in the headlines about sexual abuse and children. What is causing this trend? And why is it STILL in the headlines?

We know from listening to the television that many adults are coming out with their stories. As children they were abused. But no one ever talks about the person who did the abuse. We just all assume that person is bad and dirty. But, has one ever stopped to think that maybe there is something within this person that caused him or her to do that. What if they did not do it simply because they wanted to, or it made them feel good, but because they did it because they felt they had to?

Adult Survivor of Childhood Sexual Abuse

Memoirs: Loss of Innocence

From the time I was a small child, until I was 12 years old I was molested by my father. I did not tell my mother until I was 16. As bad as this may sound, to this day I wish I never told her. Maybe they would still be married, maybe they would have been able to work things out. I told my mother out of anger. I was pissed off at my father for following me and my boyfriend to a party where we were drinking. I shouldn't have told her like that.

The Ending Chapter

Most of you know I am a survivor of childhood sexual abuse. I began writing my story in 1997 on an old IBM shoved in my tiny little closet. I still have that original document which is also saved to the original floppy. In 2005 I went live with my story and shared it for the first time online.

I've never really explained to anyone the details of the events. I didn't ever feel that was necessary.

I've talked to counselors, therapists and even psychiatrists. I've been on various anti-depressants and anxiety medications. I've done everything I was supposed to do and here I sit, 39 years-old and I am no better.

The VB6 Cookbook by Mark Bittman

I just have to say, I love this cookbook. The VB6 Cookbook is an extension of the original healthy living book. You don't need to own that book to figure out the 'vegan before 6' formula.

If you are new here, may I suggest you pop over to my foodie website, YUMeating because I have a feeling some of these recipes are going to start showing up there.
