The start of this blog

I don't know quite how to start.. I have had another blog, my private journal, for a long time. There are many things in that blog that I want to share. There are experiences that I think could help others. There are lessons I have learned that I can't keep to myself.

I don't know how this will work. Its hard to share the positives of this journey without sharing at least some of the crap... But, I don't want to burden anyone with too much of the details.
We will see how this goes.

I will repost things from that blog... I hope I can pick things that won't trigger people too much, or upset people, but will help people understand what its like. This journey is HARD!

I want those who have been abused to know there is a way out, and I want the whole journey documented. I want those who are "secondary survivors" (friends of sexual abuse survivors) to understand what their friends are going through. I want people with eating disorders to see that there is a way out. I want to share some of the crazy thinking that goes on inside the eating disorder brain.

Mostly, I want to share me. I want people to understand ME. I don't know who that is exactly, but I will.
