THE LONG CALLING


The phone at home just rang and rang. 
Not just in the morning. Not just in the afternoon.
 The entire day I was at work, doing a double shift,
 opening and closing the restaurant. Before cell phones, 
and no way other way of contact, 
I had to wait until the place was closed
 and all the night work was done.
One O’Clock in the morning, 
and racing up the NYS Thruway to get home, 
hoping all was all right. 
Thirty plus miles of worrying and fear. 
 Nothing was going to be OK for a long time..........

TOUCH ME PLEASE

Do you ever find yourself staring at a blank page ...
with so much to say yet the fear stops you..
I have done so much especially in therapy...
yet I have not written a thing

we have used regression which definitely helps yet the residua effects are horrible...
i've been through a phase of flooding ..
 which means you are having flashbacks and feeling it in your body...
 as if it is happening now
not a fun thing..
 thank God for P..


because with drugs and her help with her caring spirit I was able to calm it down..
I'm still goin through periods of anxiety that I yet understand...
and a depression that won't quit...

I have been considering closing down this blog for multiple reasons ...
yet I have not been able to do it...

I also run a rather popular blog group that I have been unable to make a decision about,,

just this week i did something I had never done before..
 I blocked someone on facebook..

it is a horrible feeling and the guilt is making me sick..
 thank God again I have P to keep me on track..
JUJU

I hate this disease called DID and I hate abuse of me and others..

I don't know what to do as of now..
 today i slept through an appt with P which is unusual..

but I think I really needed a deep sleep with no nightmares or anxiety...

i'm finding it really hard to talk about what I see in regression..

I'm having a really hard time sharing anything...
and i think it's making me sick...

i don't know what the hell i want to say here...
I find myself (Bongo) really binging ...
and (juju) starving..
I find sam hiding and quiet..
I also find there are a few missing..

I would really like to sleep forever..
SORRY P

TOGETHER I LOVE YOU FOREVER

AN OPEN WOUND



I find myself again in a place ...
that I want to shut down..
close my eyes sleep away the day ..
make it all go away...







I find myself communicating less and less ..
with anyone ..
including P..

I want to hide it..
make it not real..
live in fantasy land..

I want things to change ...
yet the work..
the process scares the hell outta me..

I don't want to remember...
see, touch, smell...

after all that's why I split off to begin with..
 to lock it all away..
Why now would I want to open a wound ..
 pour salt and watch as I physically and emotionally crumble?


I can't write what I feel ...
or I risk scaring those close to me..

Just waking everyday is exhausting..
even sleeping is exhausting.


I use so much energy hiding ..
yet too afraid to remove the mask ..

I had a dream that P was on the other side of the lake....
I couldn't get to her...
I was horrified...
but why did I dream that to begin with..
what did I need from her?

I found a song that moved my soul...
Have a listen :


TOGETHER.... I LOVE YOU FOREVER

A CHILD WANTING TO BE HELD


Sometimes you have nothing to say...
and other times ..
like now..
you have so much to say and no words to say it ...

So so much has happened ...
in the last 6 months or so....
yet I have been living the life of avoidance...

now there is so much in my head...
 I wanna curl up in my bed and slip away .....


There has been forward movement ...
yet also backward movement too..

just one day ...
one little day..
I wish someone could join me in my head and know what I see..

I wish I could say what I see or feel ...
without being afraid of someones reaction..

Yes I can do that with P...
yet there is so much I won't say even to her..



my little world of isolation seems to be growing...
I am less and less of myself and more of others..

I think we had a breakthrough last week....
yet I feel so sad I can not celebrate it..

the black cloud of depression is evil..
it robs you of yourself..

and my faith???? well it's not there...
i don't know what this is right now...
but I do not like it....
it does not feel good...

I feel as a child wanting to be held....
just want to be held.....


TOGETHER I LOVE YOU

JEN AND ZIPPY





I should be writing, that's what I'm supposed to do ..

aren't I?
So very much has happened in the past months..
summer which usually is my good season seemed brutal...




All 3 kids going through different chaos....
I met a friend and lost a friend...
My apt burned down..
we had to move and replenish everything,,,
thank God for renters insurance.
Physically I have not felt well and lost an amazing amount of weight..
food doesn't taste or smell good..

Todays session we went back to Jen..
she's 5 years old and sucks her thumb..
she rarely talks but she did talk to P today..

here is her story :

When Jen was 5 it was the best day of her life…
it was her birthday and mommy and daddy bought her a puppy..
he was half collie half husky and all he could do was lick on her…
everywhere she went he followed.. she named him zippy…..
then bad stuff happened but she didn't care cause she could tell her best friend anything and he would keep her secrets….
then when she was 7 mommy moved to a welfare apt..
and weren't allowed dogs…
mommy said daddy took zippy to play on the farm…
it wasn't till years later she found out daddy had him killed and she never forgave him..

This is the Zippy that P gave to Jen..
something to hold on to something to love that is just for her.

she still cries.




Together .. I love you.

THE ELEVATOR





You're totally relaxed,

everything feels good....
the voice tells us we are now going in the elevator...
the door goes swoosh ..
and down we go to a place of warmth and safety....
we can feel when she moves on the couch ..
when she takes a sip of coffee..
when she jumps as the phone makes noise..
but none of it matters we are relaxed and safe...
deeper and deeper we go .



then we get to a dark place..
we are still in control we can always leave...
we  feel her hand ..
she is with us..
we go further....
and that's when the terror hits...
we are floating above watching a little girl Sam..
she is crying and terrible things are being done to her.....
she calls for me..
and in the blink of an eye we have switched places,,and i am now feeling what she has endured all these years ...
it is now her floating above and me experiencing the pain and torture.....
the clock is ticking and the voice is gently bringing us back ..
we are crying and scared ..
and the voice comforts us and hold us like we've never felt before ..
and we gently fall asleep in her arms...



we are safe...





TOGETHR...I LOVE YOU FOREVER

CHANGE AND CHOICE



The last 3 months or so,,,
 have seemed as a strong tornado...
 destroying a town with it's strong winds..

and there is a tornado in my mind happening at the same time...
making me question the reality of things.. of life....



I've watched people die.....
I've watched my son go away..
I've watched the calm and peace of the beach...
I've had my apt in flames......
I've lost a friend...

my mind being more then one can see ..
with more then one pair of eyes...
except who's seeing the right thing....

Things are changin with P ...
things I don't understand...
she's still here and has been..
just don't understand it all....


I have a choice to make ....
I can run like hell ...
or I can stay and face the mutiny...
neither a good choice that i can see..

Ju Ju has been around the most...
she's the only one who can be..
she's the only one who's walls are high enough to protect us for now..

Her depression is so strong....
even though I have been trying to eat...
 she won't let us ..I'm down to my lowest weight in life....

I don't have any answers..
 just exist


the tornado just keeps on blowing....
the noise inside deafening...

Pbb still here by my side..

protecting me..
I love her....



TOGETHER.... I LOVE YOU
