I Haven’t Forgotten You

Life has a funny way of biting us the butt sometimes. I mean, I had a nasty bout of seasonal affectiveness disorder that held me down for over a month. SAD affects millions of people living in the northern climate regions like I do. It brings on depression (duh), anxiety, and a sense of dread [...]

I Don’t Want to Feel Alone, but I Do

This post is going to be different. I'm not going to be brutally honest about how I have been feeling and it isn't pretty. I want to be honest with you so that you can see I do understand. I understand the struggles of living with dissociative identity disorder as much as anyone. Even more [...]

Dissociative Identity Disorder: A Sensational Diagnosis?

This morning I took a tour of the videos available on YouTube put out there by people about DID. What I found disturbed me. While some were honest videos from people in varying states of recovery, many were obviously created by people caught up in what they believe to be a sensational diagnosis.   Living [...]

The New Edition of The Orchestra Analogy

I have posted the orchestra analogy before, but since I have new people who have begun to follow me, I thought I'd post it again. This version isn't the same as the one posted before. I have been thinking about it and have added more and simplified it. I think it now gives a clear [...]

What We Want vs. What We Need to Make Us Grow and Be Happy

One of the things I know in my life I have been confused about is the difference between what is a want and a need. I have caught myself saying I “need” this or that when I did not. They were wants, not needs. To be honest with all of you I started to write [...]

PDF of One of My Books

Before I get started I wanted to say something. I'm fully aware that offering this book here free is going to kill any chance I have of sales on Amazon. I don't make much there anyway on it, so I guess that is fine right? I'm more interested in helping as many people as I [...]
