    Sufferer Posting is first step maybe?

    Welcome to the site! You don’t deserve all the crap you’ve been subjected to…none of us do. I’ve found that we personalize what was or wasn’t said, or done, and when we leave the home of neglect, somehow the critic takes on OUR voice and continues the mental and/or physical abuse. The rest of...

    Prayer Requests

    I SOOOO get this! It isn’t a wish to pass from this life…just a pass on the exhaustion of hit after hit after hit to our emotions, mental health, and wallets! The first thing I read today in my quiet time was “Do not worry about tomorrow” so I wrote it in bold at the top of the page of my...

    THIS should be on a T-shirt! There have been times where I have been the “abuser” by not taking care of myself, allowing self-talk crap I would never say to any other human being. I’m working on getting a handle on that…still…

    Ask a foreigner

    Speaking of air conditioners…It’s been 96-100 here for a few days and yesterday the AC couldn’t keep up and we keep it at 78° F. It wasn’t going below 83…so this morning I went out and looked at the unit. Holy cow…I don’t know how it was getting any air at all. We have cottonwood trees that...

    Ask a foreigner

    Not everyone, but most who live in areas that get really hot. I live in Kansas and count on air conditioning to be able to cope with the heat and humidity. I can’t imagine how the early settlers traveled across the country in covered wagons😳
