First post


it took me a bit to actually get the courage to write this. I tend to just keep going through everyday with this stuff pushed to the back of my mind, ignoring it, because that is my survival tactic. For some reason, I don't feel a need to talk about any of this when it hurts the most...I need to talk about it when I feel fine, maybe to make sure it all comes out in order.

Y'all can call me Dori, I'm a feminist social activist in my mid-twenties, married with no children, and feel the need to emotionally vomit.

Yeah, she gives a smile when the pain comes, the pain's gonna make everything alright... She wears a cross around her neck... and the cross is someone she has not met, not yet...

I got a new tattoo a couple weeks ago... in addition to the outline of the star on my left foot, I had a teal-colored ribbon and the word "Survivor" in black. Along with "HOPE" on the back of my neck, it gives me something tangible to focus on during the tough times.

I've finally worked up the nerve to post...

Well I've been following this community and yall's entries for awhile and I feel like a coward for not putting anything. And there seem to be alot of people who comment, so maybe I'll have better luck with the feedback here than just on my livejournal.

I dont want anyone to be hurt by what I say, so i'll label the lj cut thing w/ whats on there, but plz be careful and know that im trying to sort everything out and doing it on paper because i dont have anywhere else.
