New Parts/New Year!
I've discovered two new parts just recently. I had kinda an emergency/last-minute appointment with my T and then my husband whisked me away for a few days. I've run away in dissociative fugues around New Year's in the past, and I think he was afraid I might do it again.
Now that we're back in town, I'm attempting to work with a very young part who is not very verbal. We're going to see how it works to have another, older part "translate" for her. I have a feeling I'm heading into a whole other territory of new, early-childhood abuse memories. I'm more than a little scared.
But, my son's back in school after a 16-day holiday hiatus and I'm trying to get caught up on some things.
First things first: The deadline for the January--first of the New Year 2008--Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse is Wednesday, 1/9 (that's tomorrow folks--hurry!) for the Friday 1/11 post. An excellent, returning host, Annaleigh at As Waters Passing By/Blessed Fearscapes, is doing us the honors again for this month's edition. Please get your submissions in! You can use this submission form here.
I'm glad you made it through the holidays. I hope you keep healing and growing in your journey.
peace and blessings
Courage is being scared and doing it anyways.
Thanks, Keepers. I hope your new year is starting out well also!

Kahless: So glad to "see" you again. I hope you're feeling better.
JIP: I'm so sorry your submission missed the deadline, but I'll do all I can to make sure it gets in next month. Be on the lookout everybody: JIP's T is going to join us for the carnival. COOL!
Cassie: Howdy, Stranger! It's great to "see" you again, too! Thinking of you as we start 2008!
