Going out tomorrow?
If you’re in the US, and planning on eating out tomorrow, how about eating at Chilis? They are donating 100% of their profits on Sept. 25th to Saint Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, one of the leading childhood cancer centers in the world.
Thanks to Kevin for the pointer.
Couldn’t find the contact-me portion of this site, so I thought I’d just write this in as a comment.
In a nutshell — great site! I’m a survivor too, and things have been looking up steadily for the last several years. Like an upward graph, just better and better, with setbacks here and there.
Question for you: in order to sort of immunize myself from being an abusive person (you know that victims often become victimizers — scary but common statistic) what are the best steps?
I had been verbally abusive and nearly physically abusive to my ex-spouse and baby daughter, and even though everything is literally amazing right now with the two of them, I just want to keep taking steps to make sure I’m okay and they’re okay.
I don’t want to “fall asleep on the job” just to have the wrong set of circumstances set me off. What are some links to some preventative medicine against becoming an abuser.
I suppose just being part of a community of people who understand helps. People to talk with who will understand and stand by you. Know of anything like that?
Sorry this was so long. I applaud your site!!
