Trauma Triggers

It’s supposed to be therapeutic to write about your traumas, right? My therapist has been urging me for years to get my memoir written. Even more, I have been urging myself. I really, truly want to write my survival story and get it published.

But this is HARD. Which is why I haven’t been blogging… or doing much of anything… for the past month.

Yes, I do feel like I’m being mugged — by my own written words.
