I’ve been wanting to work more intensely on my healing for a few months now. Now that I am living in a safe place and have been able to catch up some on my sleep, I feel the time has come.
I’ve thought over and over on where to begin. Now that I have all my books home with me, I’ve brought out all of them and looked through them, trying to figure out what to read and what I want to focus on now. Nothing has seemed like the right book to begin with.
It has been lovely having my computer access once again. I’m able to spend lots of time online surfing around, which I couldn’t do for a long time. I’ve been finding some great healing links lately. I’ve added them to my Resources healing pages. I was especially happy that I was able to add some links to the Mother Daughter Sexual Abuse page and the Infant Sexual Abuse page.
I had suggested to a friend of mine that she read through some of the article links I posted to a few of my resource healing pages a few weeks ago. Then the idea that I should do that as well kept coming up in my mind. I think that is where I will start.
I decided to start where I believe I need some review and that is the same place that I recommend others to start, at Grounding/Coping Skills and Self-Soothe/Comfort Skills. Then I am planning on working through the links at my Healing from Child Sexual Abuse page. I’ll meander from there.
I have decided to read, take notes, make up lists, take some new steps, and share about my journey and the process on my blog.
Notice: This blog is a healing blog by a survivor of child sexual abuse. This blog does not include specific details about child sexual abuse, fiction or non-fiction, nor do I post any links on my resource pages that do.
Survivor Resource Pages (Forty pages of resources, non-profit organizations, articles, and healing support for survivors of child sexual abuse, rape, sexual assault, domestic violence, and dealing with the aftermath of child sexual abuse.)
Push by Sapphire (Note: I have not seen the movie, so I cannot recommend it, though the book is powerful and healing.)
An infant is a child under the age of one. I have not been able to find more resources, but wanted to post this because I think it is an important topic and hope that there will be more to add to this page.
