Catnip has put up probably the best post EVER called Nitpicking a Nightmare, on the subject of trauma and expressing yourself and what we need to recover. The best quote of all,
"People who willfully ignore the trauma of others because it makes them uncomfortable to read the words, to look at the pictures, to think about the horrors, live in a world of dangerous illusions. What will they do when those horrors arrive on their doorsteps? Maybe then they'll understand why punctuation is the last thing that will be on their minds."
This is what Dear Abby needs to know, this is what the media and other bloggers need to know, and this is what we all need to deal with, whether we blog, write a diary, find a support group, or we talk with our friends.
This blog is my AA group, or in my case, DBA (dead babies anonymous) (AA - adoptees anonymous, IA - infertility anonymous, etc. etc.) I know it makes some people feel uncomfortable, but I can't help that, I need to express myself. One day at a time I'm trying to crawl out of a hole, a deep one. I'm using lots of tools and this is one of them...deal with it.
Catnip, you KICK ASS. *Smooches, dahling*
