It hurts.

It Hurts.

Shoe laces taken

All you know, shaken

Not  a  razor  or  knife in sight

Still the pain sears through the night.

Corridors full of  eternal walkers

Going  nowhere, watched  by  stalkers.

Screams  erupt  so do  tussles

Held down by  ‘staff ‘ with muscles.

Nothing  stops  the pain  NOTHING

Smile at family don’t let them see the bluffing.

It hurts, it  hurts  you  needs  to  bleed

A sacrifice to the demon’s seed.

Doors  slam, locks  turn

Fears  grow behind  doors  souls burn

Help me  please help me

Blind eyes don’t see…………

Shoe laces taken

All you know,  shaken

Not  a  razor  or  knife in sight

Still  the pain sears  through  the night.

This is for mental health day

#Politics: Trump’s Dystopia

Over 200,00 Americans have paid with their lives for the sins
of trump’s corrupt enablers.

I will never understand why the people who betray us
expect us to love them for it.

#MentalHealth: Ten Tips for Blogging With DID

I’ve learned a few things about blogging with Dissociative Identity Disorder in the years since I first posted this.

I’ve learned that most people can’t and won’t understand DID; the people I want in my life are the people who try.

I’ve learned that I do not owe anyone an apology for the DID, nor do I need other people to validate my diagnosis.

I’ve learned that when I’m confused and don’t know what to say, I say nothing.

I’ve learned to understand and accept the limits of what I can accomplish with DID; this is not giving up, it’s acceptance, and with acceptance, comes peace of mind.

I’ve learned that DID makes me vulnerable to online Narcissists. One of my personal rules is to avoid relationships in games like Second Life.

Here are my top 10 tips for blogging with DID.

  1. Never apologize for speaking your truth.
  2. Learn as much as you can about your illness
    and triggers and keep learning.
  3. There are jerks on every platform: ignore them.
  4. Take responsibility when you are wrong.
  5. Avoid making commitments you can’t keep.
  6. Never leave a negative comment on someone’s blog.
  7. Thank people when they visit your blog.
  8. Be grateful for your followers.
  9. Always treat other bloggers with respect.
  10. Be yourself, especially when you seem improbable.

#Politics: The 10 (or more) Top Reasons I Stand with Joe Biden

Trump and his Flying Monkeys are branding average Americans as radical
left-wing extremists. Therefore, I must state what I stand for:

I stand for the principle that all people are equal before the law.

I stand for our right as Americans to have a President who treats us with dignity and respect.

I stand for our centuries-long commitment to building a more perfect Union.

I stand for our military and its right to a Commander in Chief who is worthy of respect.

I stand for healthy children who have plenty to eat and safe schools.

I stand for investing in our future with a fully funded system of public education.

I stand for science over superstition, fact over opinion, and reason over violence.

I stand for a government based on compassion, one that works for all of us.

I stand for American Democracy, our NATO Allies, the Paris Accords and
the Rule of Law.

Therefore I stand with Joe Biden, not because I am a Democrat or a Progressive; I stand with Joe Biden because, as a citizen of a great democracy, I want a President who knows I am somebody,  that my life matters, that my voice counts.
