Today is the anniversary of my trauma. I thought long and hard about whether or not I was going to write a blog post today because it still feels a little weird, especially weird today.

At least twice a week I will text my boyfriend: "Hey.....are you mad at me?" or something like that.

Hey, I don't know if you noticed but I disappeared for a bit. Things have been a bit rough here on my end. But relapse is okay. Relapse is normal. I'm mostly saying that because I need my own reminder. On Tuesday, I had a really bad day. I ran out of a class because … Continue reading You Are Here
