In this pic I’m the one on the right in front of our older brother Sammy, and behind John’s shoulder.

Memories, some of which I’ve been putting on the backburner, have been coming back really strong. I’ve been doing a lot of shadow work and the unpacking of and processing of trauma, and in so doing writing has been a big help.

In some of these writings I will be describing scenes of physical abuse, or may describe times in my life when I was having suicidal thoughts and ideations. At the top of each chapter or section that has that stuff coming up I will make sure to put a trigger warning.

Please don’t read if these will be troubling for you!
