A Little Business To Attend To
Starting Sunday night, I'm going to spend six days away from my noisy, always-begging-for-some-form-of-attention, house. I'm going to rest, process and write, as well as comfort and pamper myself a little bit.
Don't worry, I'll still be on top of things for next week's October edition of The Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse. This month's host is Lynda at In The Best Interest: Child Advocacy Law. Now, you don't have to know anything about child advocacy law to enter this carnival. We will still have our regular submission categories of: Aftermath, Advocacy & Awareness, Healing & Therapy, In The News, Poetry and Survivor Stories. In addition, Lynda has set a theme of advocacy (perfect fit, right?) for this edition. To be exact, Lynda says, "The theme is: Beginner's Guide to Saving a Child. We are seeking submissions on volunteer opportunities, ways to help work to end child abuse and organizations that focus their efforts on this important work." I've already submitted my post called, Take A Stand, Raise Your Hand. I'm actually getting my own post in before the day of the deadline for a change. Yay!
Speaking of which, the deadline is Wednesday, October 28th for the Friday 10/30 edition. (That's midnight Eastern time in the U.S.). You can submit your own post using this form here. Please make sure to tell your friends and get your own posts in while I'm gone, okay? Thanks, everyone, for your continued support and contributions to this carnival. Together, we can make a difference and raise awareness about child abuse!
I got some really good work done yesterday, I have a break today and then I go again tomorrow. Thanks for thinking of me.
Get those blog carnival submissions in, folks! ;)
Question.... have you ever done EMDR?
If you have I'd love to get your take on it. My counselor is wanting to give that a go with me to see if we can defuse some specific tramas of my own.
And Jade: I've tried EMDR twice. I had a terrible time with it the first time because that therapist didn't bother to ground me first and I got totally re-traumatized. Then, I had great results with it with a therapist who knew about grounding and gave me some great exercises for that. So, that would be my caution--make sure you're grounded first. A good therapist should know what this means and entais. Good luck!
Hope your Wed is going smoothly :-)
Jade: I hope the session went well. My second T session for the week got moved, so I'm off for one soon...at 3PM.
Thank you for checking in and the support. It means alot.
