A key word that you will see:

Fragmentation: a mental process where a person becomes intensely emotionally focused on one aspect of themselves, such as “I am angry” or “no one loves me,” to the point where all thoughts, feelings and behavior demonstrate this emotional state, in which, the person does not or is unable to take into account the reality of their environment, others or themselves and their resources. This is a term that my therapist and I use and is on the continuum of dissociation.

Courageous Steps ~ New Blog

A few weeks ago, I started a new blog entitled Courageous Steps. This week I added a link from Clinically Clueless to Courageous Steps and vice versa. Since I don't use Wordpress, which allows for pages, I had to figure out a way to make a page for some things that I wanted up, but couldn't put on Clinically Clueless.

So far the plan for , Courageous Steps is to have my Wordles, slideshows and fingerpainting that I've had or still have on Clinically Clueless. I will also be adding additional fingerpainting, Wordles, slideshows or what ever artistic media I happen to find. I will also be adding the topical and informational posts from here to Courageous Steps and posts that I don't want to have here like the September 11th posts.

There is a link on each site on the top right hand corner to take you to Clinically Clueless or Courageous Steps. Courageous Steps also has a link in its description below the title. So, come and check it out. Remember, it is in the beginning stages and a work in progress.

I think courageous steps is much more you, you rae taking them every day wading thru mud at times it seems, but you are taking the steps wwhich I admire you greatly for.
I wondered if i could hijack your blog to see if anyone has any wise words for how to get round to talking about the really difficult stuff in therapy, in my head I can do it but the words don't emerge, sorry for the interuption!
Gentle hugs, mini (the part time stalker!)

I've been lurking here for awhile, and just wanted to stop in and say hello. Both of your blogs are filled with courage and strength.

Take care:)

Strong and determined said...

Going to check it out. Thanks for taking courageous steps, and for sharing them with all of us!

Clueless said...

@tamara. Thank you. Not as busy as it looks. :-)

@stephany. Thank you!!

@stalker. Talking about the really tough stuff took me 17 years, but some of the first steps were fingerpainting, Wordles, my journal and reading it...it has been tough. Still, with the really tough stuff that he hasn't heard yet, I have to write it in a journal first. Forget it if I have to talk. :-)

Thank you for your support and encouragement. (((mini uk)))

@angel. Thank you for lurking and leaving a comment. I know I have lurkers who ocassionally peak out.

I'm so glad you have this site--I am sure it helps so many people.

You are very courageous to share your personal stories with people--and what a positive impact you must have for so many people who have suffered as you have.
