> I'm sure you will be all right. Thankyou. I didn't mean to sound harsh, but I did need to be validated. That's the purpose of faith I guess. I still have that. What my faith does for me when I am in the middle of a crisis, is remind me that this too will pass. Faith for me, sets a code for living that if followed will keep me/anyone protected. I still have problems, but none of them have challenged my faith in God. It is comforting to know that He is always near, when no one else seems to be. I am so sorry. Since my stroke I have felt non existent. People look through you rather than at you. That is so sad. Just because I don't feel like communicating by speaking, people ignore and pretend I don't exist. You have chosen a faith forum where people can share and strengthen one another through their own experiences with faith. You aren't here to just focus on yourself. As the moderator of an abused survivor group (and other groups), it is rare to speak of myself. I thought I would be "safe" to talk about what was going on with me (for a change). You are here to communicate with others. Didn't I read somewhere that you and I are the same age? How many good years do we have left? I hope it's not all downhill from here. I keep on working so hard. I am waiting to find out if my submission to the American Counseling Association's Convention for next year....if my paper on emotional abuse will be accepted. If so, I will be speaking in front of the professionals. I have no degree, but my experience at being verbally and physically abused, has made me an "expert" in the subject. I recently returned to school and won a scholarship, to my amazemnt! Your poetry is beautiful. Thankyou, sweetie! Let it pull you up and over some of the hard spots. I kept on writing years after my website was up, and a lot of the poems are included in my memoir. I plan to start a website for people who have been emotionally abused. I always go to the poet's last phrase, the clincher, because that is where a drop of wisdom will squeeze out from the writing.

Hugs and Love, Sassy
