I just wanted to let you all know I am still here. I am going through a period of internal processing that isn't easy to put into words and separate into individual thoughts. Posting may be pretty sporadic for a while. I will post again - just not sure when and how often in the immediate. Thank you all for your kind words of support, they have helped - continue to help. Hmm... funny how I'm suddenly shy about anting to tell you all what's going on. Ah, well. Basically, now that I am out of the familial environment, the internal issues from the sexual abuse are coming back to the forefront and the little girl wants to come out of the cellar (see posts on survival, awareness & breaking free in April, 2008). And that is going to take a lot of energy, I think. When I am up to it, I will post what's going on, but if there is a gap of time between posts, know that I am not gone - just working... thank you all, again, for your support. You are amazing.
