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.

What is Pinterest?

According to their website:

Pinterest is a virtual pinboard. Pinterest allows you to organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. You can browse pinboards created by other people to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests.  
People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and share their favorite recipes.

I say that it is like a virtual scrapbook where you take images and products off the Internet or from those whose pictures are already posted and pin it to your boards.  Boards are pins that are named by catagories that Pinterest has or you can create your own.  Some of mine are Child of God, Coffee, Back in My Time, Places I Love, Facinating Jewelry, Mother Nature, and Straight/Christian for Gay Rights.  You can follow what specific people put on all of their board or select board that interest you.

Each pin has a link back to the original site that the picture is taken from, so if it is an item that you would like to purchase, read more about, or obtain a recipe clicking on the link will take you right there.  You can also embed the image, add it to Facebook or Twitter. (Right now, there are some bugs in Pinerest that they are working on, so don't get to frustrated.)

It may sound complicated, but it really isn't.  Once you get started, you will have lots of fun.  I know that I did.  I'm a bit addicted right now.  Currently, you have to be invited, so follow the instructions on the website.  I'd be happy to invite you.  I hope that you check out this site.  This is a link to my boards, http://pinterest.com/coleen_uyehara/

It is also addicting. I just started this past week and have over 900 pins and it would have been more if they weren't having problems. It is relaxing fun...like window shopping.
