Thank you for sharing this
Virtually everything you post is so relevant, so poignant and franking gripping in its honesty that I’ve just nominated your blog for an award called, ‘Once a Victim, Now a Survivor.’ Your writings have been extremely helpful to me in my journey towards recovery from abuse and I want you to know how much you’re appreciated. You’re under no obligation to accept the award – it does require a little time and effort, and I can only imagine how busy you are. If you’re interested though, you can find the details here…http://killingmesoftly.co/2015/07/17/once-a-victim-now-a-survivor-award/ I just read the article by Irwin Osborne about the oppression of women by the beauty industry. Brilliant. I’ve wanted to write something like that myself for some time – now I don’t need to, lol. I’ve share it on fb. Thank you again…keep up the wonderful work.
Thank you for all you Judy said. I appreciate it so much love hearing from people, good, or bad. Love the idea of the award it is appreciatwd. Irwin is a rare talent and I’m glad I’ve signed him to a contract. He is a special talent. He would appreciate your words. I’ll pass them on unless you commented to him on his poat, then he Already knows
I’ve nominated you for the Liebster Award. Please visit my post to find out the details. 🙂
Hello, I have nominated you for the creative blogger award. As far as i can tell this is a kind of infinite process of appreciation of co-bloggers, a weaving with no end, a collective award, but it seems like a lovely idea to me. https://recoveringoursexemilyskyepoet.wordpress.com/2015/07/25/the-creative-blogger-award-nominations/

Hi there! I am not sure if I’ve already sent you this comment but I needed to make sure (had a big distraction my son fell into a bonfire while camping last Mon and got his lower rem burned good. Emergency, then referral to specialist then sent to Shriners-so I don’t know which end is up this week-sorry) that you knew that I have nominated you for the Liebster Award. I think you have an important topic that everyone should stop by and educate themselves. While I have broken one of the rules ( I now see) I still stand by the nomination and hope you will participate. The rules are at my website and I look forward to having you post your answeres. Congratulations again and excellent website!
hugs to you–chely

I would love to write my story for your blog. I write mommy blogs and a poetry blog and raw food blog. But I also have a “story” that I’d like to share. Do you allow guest posts?
email it to me
I will. Thank you. I don’t have a safe place to put it down, as I wear my happy mommy mask most of the time now 🙂
Oh NOW THIS Sounds Like It WILL Be good
Hey! I finally have written my story, after writing and re writing. If you’re still interested? I can email it to you now.
Just emailed it
That’s awesome thank you be in touch
Just read it emailed you back
This is definitely going up on our site and on facebook
Hey! Did my emails today go through? Somehow my reply to you on Saturday didn’t. That happens sometimes when I email from my phone.
I Haven’t Gotten Any Emails???
Okay. It must be my phone. I approve the version however there was a section omitted that I’d like in there, if possible. I’ll email more from my computer now. Sorry about that!
I never had the presence of mind to read this, as I was taking an interest in many other aspects of this blog.
I hope things can only improve for this person. It can be difficult and it’s a big setback for an ambitious and determined person.
“He was a long-haired, brown-skinned, homeless, community-organizing, anti-slut shaming, Middle Eastern Jew.”
Reading your post, ‘Republican Jesus: The Rise of Radical Christianity,’ I couldn’t help but find a sense of relief that someone has written something like you did. From what I’ve encountered, very few people would post something like that, but you did. And it’s a very good thing too.
You’re posts are well-written, learned, and engaging. I hope throngs of others stumble across your blog.
Last count, 7B+ people are among the living, these days and if I could choose only one to hang out with and share thoughts for an afternoon, I would choose you, hands down, all day long.
Because *that* is how uniquely gifted you arre: you have the gift to speak to us, and, to speak for us. Meaning, the gift to allow others to feel heard through your voice.
That’s a pretty damn powerful gift.
I’m so grateful you have it, you use it and I was lucky enough to hear it.
IMO, you embody the purpose of a human being: to be who they are. We are not human doings,. Our value is not a fluctuating market, but fixed and immutable by virtue of simply having the courage to fully express the perfect truth of who we each are, as we are. Feel the love, brother.
Thank you so much
Love to you
I got news for you, this bunch out here are the ones needing locked away, this is real life a clockwork orange.

My Friend, I brought you something.
This may be the last time I can do this, so I nominated you for The Sunshine Blogger Award,
Please don’t turn it down, Take it, enjoy the feeling with those that matter, and then spread some more of that caring that’s in your heart,
i appreciate you and these that truly know what caring means,
May Our GOD Bless all of us who care,
Drug Addiction: A For Profit Epidemic~ I had recently watched the Documentary 13th on Netflix. It piqued my interest. Having spent so many years surrounded by addicts and men who were in and out of the prison system I had some knowledge of what they went through. I was one of the few women allowed to be part of the group because of my alcoholism. I’ve written several posts on the subject and on nature vs. nurture, genetics, and what is imprinted when you are a child. While researching I was angered by a report from the Federal Bureau of Prisons. 64% of the Nation wide jail population have Mental Health Issues. In Riker’s Island 70% of inmates need medical treatment for addiction, only 17% get it. Anytime I was hospitalized for a suicide attempt no one asked about substance abuse. Every time I was brought to the hospital my blood alcohol level would be at least 3 times the legal limit. There has to be a system of Comprehensive Care. I hate to say I don’t see it happening anytime soon. Your writing still brings tears to my eyes. Thank you!
