Life Survivorship-8

Last October, I began my third or fourth “nervous breakdown.” I’ve talked about my nervous breakdowns before. Several days ago, I was getting myself all riled up because I was worried that I would start falling down into the pit this year as well. Then, a song came onto the radio; it seemed as if […]

Life Survivorship-7

I woke up this morning at 5:30 with the song “No Longer Slaves” running through my mind. First of all, this is a fairly new song and I loved it the first time I heard it. Second of all, I’m playing it this morning in about three hours with the rest of the band at […]

Life Survivorship-3

In my last really long, sad diatribe about my two nervous breakdowns, I failed to mention that in the midst of going to the church for help and going to various counselors all over the county, I’ve also had a great set of friends helping me through these difficult times. Today, Tami—I’ve talked about her […]

Life Survivorship-2

Eighteen years ago, when I had my first “nervous breakdown”—the words I use to describe my falling apart over recovered memories of sexual abuse—I knew that I needed to find help and I needed to find help fast. I couldn’t get out of bed, I couldn’t perform simple tasks like cook dinner or take care […]

Life Survivorship-1

It has been a heck of a few days since writing that last (really hard) letter to my benefactor. I’ve been walking around in a daze, alternating between relief that I could finally put into words what I’ve been feeling all of these years, to slinking around groups of people thinking to myself, “Did I […]
