Well, I’m blogging semi-anonymously. So a detailed “About Me” page would be counter-productive. The bare bones: I am multiple. I am an adult female. I like to write.
Although I’m pre-retired* from quite a few things, I do not have a degree, and I’m not a professional anything, so nothing I write should be taken as professional OR medical advice. I’m very well-educated and I have a lot of life experience, and those are my only qualifications. This blog is about the experience of recovering from Satanic Ritual Abuse, Dissociative Identity Disorder (polyfragmented), and disorganized attachment.
I still identify as Christian at this point, but I’ve had a lot of changes in perspective about that in the last year. My theological stances are undergoing some changes. Even when I was firmly an evangelical Christian, I did not want to make this blog about that, because I understand how victims of this type of abuse (SRA) could have a hard time finding their way back to the real Jesus. I have struggled with that in the past as well, so I understand, and I also don’t want to exclude readers who do not wish to identify as Christians. Most of my posts are not about those things.
I am also planning to go back through my posts at some point and edit some of them that include the Christian slant, but it will take some time.
I am also fairly functional at this point in my journey; I am married to a wonderful man, I do some advocacy and peer work, and maintain something of a social life. This wasn’t always possible, but I’ve come a long way (baby…JK).
If you’re dying to know something beyond these things, send me a message and I’ll think about answering it. ~J8
*“Pre-retired” is a term I made up, and it’s where you retire BEFORE you actually do the thing. So in my case, I’m a pre-retired dancer, sheep wrangler, FBI detective, veterinarian, professional musician, Rubix cube champion, AND chef! See how that works?!
