Hello. This is Recovering From My Own Disaster, a blog about the mental health struggles of an abuse and rape survivor. I would recommend reading the About Me page just so you have a better idea of what this blog is about and a little bit about me.
What I want for this blog is to share my own experiences. I know there will be people out there wanted support and thinking they are alone and they’re not. Recovery is a journey and I’m on my own path going my own pace.
This Welcome Post is also an about me post as well because I want you to know who I am as a survivor. Now I will never be a victim despite what I have been through because of the ugliness which is that word. I am here today and I am getting towards a place where I will be free and can be free.
For this post’s About Me sort of thing I’m going to answer a series of Would You Rather Questions.
- Would you rather always be 10 minutes late or 20 minutes early?
Honestly, 20 minutes early… I mean 95% of the time I’m 20 minutes early anyway because that’s the nature of having OCPD like I don’t even like going to work 5 minutes before because it makes me uncomfortably anxious.
2. … lose all your money and valuables or all the pictures you have ever taken?
That’s actually hard. I think though that I would rather lose my money and valuables because I have been to Argentina and i have seen beautiful sunrises and storms and as a photographer I just couldn’t give up my photos.
3. … be famous while alive but forgotten in death or unknown while alive and famous after death?
Easy… unknown while alive and famous once dead. Just because I would love for people to know me and know my story and the pain but I want my privacy and I don’t want to have my face on magazines when I can see it or be stopped when I go out. I like my peace.
So that’s just a small little bit. I will write when I next can
