New Parts/New Year!

Sorry I've been a little MIA lately. I know one blogger buddy said they were worried. I did make it through Christmas, New Year's and my son's birthday (he was born on New Year's day).

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.

Hi Marj,

I'm glad you made it through the holidays. I hope you keep healing and growing in your journey.

Good for you and your husband for taking preemptive steps to take care of yourself when needed.
Thanks, Brian. And the same to you. Yep, my goal for 2008 is to not have to go to therapy twice a week anymore. ;)
Karma: Thanks. I'm glad to see from your blog that you're taking steps to take care of yourself as well. Yay for us! :)
Glad you are back !!
Thanks, Enola! Happy New Year!
Keep that mojo working, Marj
TherapyDoc: Ya think I got some mojo workin'? Wow! Thanks! :)
sneaky, whisked you away before you could disappear, congrats on a successful begin to the new year and welcome back!!!

peace and blessings

Working with preverbal parts is hard, but very rewarding as well.

Courage is being scared and doing it anyways.
Wise words. Thanks, Patches. I'm going in for a T session to work on this today, so I needed some encouragement. Thanks a lot! :)

Thanks, Keepers. I hope your new year is starting out well also!
Welcome back, Marj!!!!! I have to admit I was starting to worry, too. So glad to see you post.
I'm sorry I worried you guys. Thanks for the caring, concern and "welcome back!" April. You're so sweet! :) xoxoxo
