    I had always assumed this was a safe community for victims of trauma.
    While this is mostly true, there are a few members (most of whom are commenting in this thread) who have a history of trolling diaries related to Child Sexual Abuse and attempting to demean or diminish the victims thereof. It got particularly ugly last spring around the "Tree Climber" diaries.

    The good news is that these folks are a very small (though annoyingly vocal) minority here. The majority of Kossacks are much better people than that.

      Wallowing in past trauma is not choosing to recover.
      No amount of money or therapy is going to cause a recovery from trauma.  The traumatized must choose recovery and then recover.  It is not easy and it does take a lifetime but, good days are ahead and today was excellent and glorious.  
      I am not my trauma.  I am ok.  I am fine.
      Some notion of normalcy is a crock and I am proud to say that not only am I not normal, I don't even believe exists except as a perpendicular to something.
