I am writing in order to hopefully gain some insight and support regarding my mental health issues. I tend to dissociate a lot, and this has become more problematic for me lately. I am interested in hearing from other people who deal with dissociation, as well as anyone else who is interested in the topic. I feel that I will benefit more from peers than I do from my therapist, who is not that great.

I am in my 20s, female, an atheist, and gay. I have a partner who is absolutely fantastic. I am a survivor of emotional and sexual abuse, but I have very little memory of anything that happened to me. This blog is not meant to focus solely on trauma, but please be aware that due to my history, some material may be difficult to read. I will post trigger warnings as appropriate, but I cannot guarantee a trigger warning for every potentially upsetting topic, as it is impossible for me to know what will affect others. I hope you will find my posts to be interesting and worth your time. Please feel free to comment, I always welcome the input of others as long as it is respectful!
