    Dear Denise,
    My woman’s pastor told me about your blog a while ago but honestly I have been too afraid to check it out until today. Wow, all the stories. All the lives that have been enriched by you opening up and being real! I admire you very much for your courage! I have not admitted my past to many people as I am very ashamed of what I have been through. As a small child about 6 or so I was sexually molested by a male cousin and a baby-sitters son. Then as an adult, I was sexually, physically, emotionally, and spiritually assaulted by a boyfriend that lasted for 3 years. He would bring home “friends” and they would take turns torching me and laughing and having a great time watching each other hurt me. I have always had very low self-esteem but never really looked at why until this past few months. I am finally at a place that it hurts badly enough that I have to get help and change my life and stink’n think’n. I have finally stepped into a faith based 12 step recovery group and am doing the work to change my life. My depression has been severer at times. I have bipolar and am finally medicated to a point I don’t want to cut anymore nor do I want to attempt suicide ever again. Several years ago, I did have a life changing, body mutilating wreck that completely changed my life! I know (finally) that with God, recovery groups, and my sisters in Christ… ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE! You have inspired me to stop just surviving this life and counting down the days until it’s over and start being grateful for the here and now and start really enjoying today! Thank you so much for your willingness to be honest and providing a safe place to be real! May God bless your every step!!!

      Bugsie, Your comment today brought tears to my eyes. I am so thankful you have found help and a group of women to support you in your journey. It makes all the difference. Thank you for letting me know sharing my story has helped you, too -that is music to my ears!
      God has a miracle in store for you. He’s eager to show His uncompromising, radical, incredible love for you!
      Please come back again and let me know how you’re doing. I care.

    I ran across your blog randomly because of your nanowrimo mention and was surprised to find other things we have in common (ie: surviving a painful childhood). I look forward to reading your blog and I applaud your courage to talk publicly on a forum like this about your experiences. I am very open with my friends/family about my healing process but not with the public so I am impressed by your courage! And I really relate to your post “estrangement”. When I was estranged from my parents (which I amazingly am not anymore after they asked me to go to therapy with them – which never seems to happen and I know how incredibly lucky I am) – anyway, I used to have a joke about the question from other relatives “Why won’t you talk to your parents????” and I’d say “They didn’t buy me a pony.” Because really – do people think it is that easy for a child to rip their own heart out and walk away from their parents??? Anyway, nice to meet you and yay you!

      Hi Julia!
      Thank you for your note! LOVE LOVE LOVE your hilarious comeback about why you didn’t talk to your parents! Yes, you are so lucky they invited you to therapy with them…what an amazing thing! I had a miracle of my own this summer with my mom. I blogged about it in July/August. It is so wonderful to meet you and I look forward to hopping over to your site now! Hugs!!

    Thanks for your comments on the post I wrote. I really didn’t make the context clear, so having pondered how I might change it, I decided to trash it. I’m really glad you commented because otherwise I might not have discovered your blog, the contents of which are important and valuable. I’m sure many will be moved and helped by your honesty, courage and depth. God bless you!

      Hi Michael, Thanks for your comments and encouragement. I enjoyed your blog and am sorry you have decided to trash the one post. Taking trauma into account does create an entirely different dimension and because of my past, that’s where my mind usually lands. You have some great posts, including the one on Christians struggling with depression. I look forward to reading more on your blog.
