My Travels with Depression

This week’s writing class assignment is to randomly select a writing prompt from a book, Imageor something.  Then write for at least 5 minutes your response to the chosen words. 

At the beginning of our writing group, each member received a “Recovery College” writing pad.  On the top of each page, there is a quote.  The page I am onto now has this quote at the top. 

“May the Bridges I burn light the Way”

That quote will be my writing prompt.  .  This is my five minutes of rambling and hopefully I might learn how to burn some bridges.

ImageBurning bridges/letting go is evidently not my strong point.  I hang onto day-to-day disputes/mishaps and then obsessively ruminate over them for days, sometimes weeks.  I exhaust myself with the mental torture and I neglect my life by being caught up in so much internal drama.  

Is that part of…

The Traumatised Child Within

My Travels with Depression

ImageThroughout life, rather than live with childhood trauma, many of us are inclined to run from the memories that transport us back to a place we try so hard to escape.

I imagine that every survivor of abuse has awareness for the need to forgive and move on – not for the abusers benefit, but for our own peace of mind.  There is desperation to find healing of the hurt, shame and humiliation.  At the same point, there is less of a willingness to forgive the perpetrator(s).

How can we find forgiveness in our hearts for people whose self-righteous arrogance Imagecannot admit they were wrong?  How can we overcome the anger for our abusers and the impact their actions have on our entire lives?  I seem to harbour some kind of mental block against achieving that idealistic state of forgiveness. 

At the weekend, something weird happened.  I became aware of…

–»& *although these “social research experts” ADMIT:

quote from Sci.Am.:

Dr. Finkelhor notes, “child victimization declines of the 1990s were something new, and *not simply the extension of trend lines* from the past. E.g., *available data on child abuse show strong increases in all forms of maltreatment from the mid-1970s into the 1990s.*
After a short plateau, the *sexual abuse decline seemed to start in 1992*; physical abuse *decline gained momentum after 1996*…. Many(?) analysts did not interpret the earlier rise as “necessarily indicative of a real increase” in child maltreatment -but rather- as result of a new public & professional mobilization to identify & report cases. But *data suggested real increases in the 1980s.”*

Overall, Dr. Finkelhor told LiveScience.com, “There is very little evidence that child sexual abuse is on the rise in U.S., + considerable evidence that it is declining, including data from law enforcement, child protection & ‘surveys’ of victims themselves.”…

we-e-ell…it’s €ertain: : : n0t All “necessarily” (or) even “remotely Agree, here…
-moving along their ‘theory’:

    Causes of [late ’90’s significant] drop in child sexual abuse are complex; not completely understood.

{..uh.. (OR) perhaps, they’re just Now..becoming 0LD enough 2 *realize, or *report it ? ? …}

    Some experts point out, “overall crime rate” dropped significantly during same time.. child *Abuse rates* fell -along with murder/assault… Other analyses credit “economic prosperity” of 1980s & 1990s..

[WOW!-how’s that make U ~feel abt TODAY???]

[[& a thoughtful Comment TO those inevitable Yahoos , slobbery with “anticipation” —let’s Blame this On the Gays! ‡8^P ]]:

Child abuse has *nothing to do with sexual orientation*. *pedophiles are aroused by sexual dominance* & *control, which makes children of either sex their potential victims.
However, *opportunities for men to prey on boys * are vastly more abundant [nowadays] than with girls.
Rarely are men [NOW] allowed unsupervised control & access to young girls,

{ & there IS a sad, sad Reason for ~that, too 😦 – }

but that circumstance is quite common for young boys. That’s *why pedophiles seek out Positions * in religious clergy, sports teams, scouts, etc. Most molesters are married men with children of own (Catholic priests aside.)
Clinical studies have shown that *openly gay men are the demographic least likely to be involved in child molestation*. If anyone thinks otherwise, then I submit that they have been mislead by untrustworthy sources of info.

[quote excerpt]
“Last week, IOWA became 1st state (in Am.) to make it a Crime to *lie to get onto a farm TO record images* of animal Abuse. UTAH…Gov. is poised to sign legislation…to Go even further *shielding Animal Treatment* from Public view. UT’s statute would BAN photography of livestock (w/o owner permission) –a misdemeanor *punishable by Fine ± 1 yr prison.
*This new iteration of laws, a.k.a. “agricultural interference” statutes, -base upon legal concept— private enterprise has ~right to conduct~ business mostly in private–» based upon political premiselivestock industry warrants special protections (that ordinary criminal law does not afford it)”;
like general trespass/nuisance/fraud laws of IO & UT…
•“1st Amendment Interest–»likely won’t be long b4 someone is arrested/charged with these new state crimes”…thus, not “long b4 lawsuit attacking their Validity”…
Ken Paulson, of 1st Amendment Center, said that “ag gag” bills …likely Will face “significant 1st Amendment challenge.” & wrote:
News-gathering is protected by 1st Amendment, & that applies even if the gatherer is an advocacy org.
Any attempt to keep people from exercising their freedom of Speech or Press by preventing them from collecting information is going to be constitutionally suspect. It’s particularly troubling in cases where the government is trying to use its power to prevent the Public from documenting what many believe = *cruel treatment* of animals. 
• Utah/Iowa will likely have to do more to legally justify restrictions on free speech. e.g., if all the “perpetrator” is doing = taking photos, then where is “interference” w/ “agricultural” business? Doesn’t “interference” come only afterwards, + only if what images show are so disturbing as to force farms into changing practices (or lose business)? & if so, wouldn’t 1st Amendment protect gathering of such images?”
• “It’s absurd–idea that Iowa & Utah Farmers = a persecuted group needing special protection in laws designed to chill the flow of info abt matters of public health.”

Suzanne Roy, of AWHPC says, “This is abt hiding the truth of conditions at animal agricultural operations from the public. @horse slaughter summit in Las Vegas, ranchers bemoaned urbanization of America & that people have lost touch with where their food comes from. Now they try to crack down on photographic & video evidence that shows the Public exactly where their food comes from.”
…“–half-dozen other states are thinking about new “ag-gag” laws–
Every journalist, every advocate, every person who believes in the idea that “sunlight is the best disinfectant,” every advocate of *transparency*, & even every person who cares about what they eat ought to be concerned by these laws…
Put another way: If these industries need this much special protection from collection of truthful images, then
it’s awful to imagine what’s happening to some animals who live in places the cameras have not yet found.”
