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.

Where Do I Begin?

This last month has been a good break for me and I hope you enjoyed my selections for GLBT History Month.  Now, it back to my more personal blogging and a lot has happened in the last month.  For now, let me just say that I've been having a difficult time and my emotional world seems to be in a whirl.

I also joined Facebook!! I can't believe I've been drawn into its snare. I am also using my real name there with a link to this blog...gulp!!  I guess if I'm going to be more open and honest...my coming out of the closet, so to speak, this is one way.  As such, I'm being careful as to who I add as a friend.  I am trying to figure out how to add the add a friend button to this site...hopefully, I'll figure it out.

On this blog are many things that no one really knows about me.  I guess, I am starting to stop hiding behind my anonymity.  Scary thought especially since I have two family members as friends.  My websites are only open to friend. Once, I figure out the button thingy, I'll post it here.

I'm on face book too, but I do not share everything that is in my blog. My blog has been a "safety net" for me. I have told things about myself that I'm not sure I want the world to know. Someday I might write my story, but I am not there yet. My advise is you don't have to give out all your information at one time. Anyway that the way I feel.

Wow. That's very brave of you to link your real name to this blog. You are very courageous.

And you can "Like" my blog on Facebook if you'd like! There's a button on the right hand side of my blog.

Welcome to Facebook!

Wishing you well,

Hi CC, I hope it isn't too scary 'coming out' on facebook.

Welcome to the world of facebook. I think that it's brave of you to add a link to your blog. I know that at this time I couldn't do that on facebook. I was freaked enough when I started my blog where no one even knows me. It is a scary thought. but I think it is awesome to be able to do that.

Thanks Mike. We are now friends and you know my real name.

Wanda, my blog was a safety net which I am chosing to take down, but it has been a HUGE decision. I am only letting my friends on Facebook have the link to his site.

NOS, yes it is scary courageous...I will go "like" you!

Evan, It feels good to "come out," despite of it being scary.

Lost in a maze, I certainly felt the same way as you did...but now it is time for me to be "real."

Thank you everybody for your comments...I appreciate you all.
