How's your day? A tough start here. But now, we're really working to keep our balance.
How do you cope when you're getting bombarded with stimulus? When we go out, we take the Blackberry or the IPod with headphones. Because you have to protect yourself. Do you feel like in the store they're blasting the Muzak just to get to you? You have to cover yourself.
Do you have problems with body memory, sights, sounds, and more of the psycho(s) that raped you? How do you ground yourself when that happens? You hold onto everything solid in the space you're in. And then if nothing else you scream and fight back. Because you have to.
We still keep a weapon in the room wherever we are. Just in case we need it. It doesn't matter that it's a lucid dream. You have to fight back.
