Some Days Are Golden.

These days, I don’t use an alarm clock. I wake naturally between 8 and 830am and I feel rested. Yes, it is luxurious. I had 2 days off work.

How Important Is A Loving Home To Recovery From Trauma?

Since I moved in with my brother 22 days ago, I have begun to return to the best version of myself. This is happening for one reason and that is because he loves me.

Forcing the Narcissist To Be Healthy.

I have been writing about how I struggled, kicking and screaming, to force my narcissist to get healthy. I knew he could do it. I had complete confidence in him. Never did a woman have so much faith in her man. David was a giant to me, a real hero. I knew he was special Read More

Cheering Myself Up.

A good night’s sleep fixes everything. Today’s goal is to try to cheer myself up by taking an outing. Maybe I will drive to the ocean… Or go to a movie in a cinema… Anything, as long as I don’t spend the entire day feeling sorry for myself. I want my life to be more Read More
