when emotions override all logic

I felt pretty bad tonight; thinking about the trial, having flashbacks.. so I thought I'd do something 'constructive' with these negative feelings. I've always liked taking pictures, so I decided to take a picture which sort of represented my feelings/thoughts at that particular moment.. 

Surprisingly, I felt a lot better afterwards and I thought I'd share. I'm putting the picture behind the cut just in case - it shows about half of my face, with some (fake) bruises, but I understand that this can be considered triggering for some.

Involve whatever it is that you love to do in the healing process. It helps.

I have an idea.
Would anyone in the community be opposed to posting pictures of themselves? Sometime's I really want to put a face to the people that I have come to love and respect from this community. Personally, I am not opposed to this at all, and if you guys are up to it, why not put together some sort of photo journal and short bio (of everything not rape-related in your life, positive things, like likes, dislikes, inspirations in life, ect.)? I'd sure like to "meet" all of you :). If this idea gets okayed, Then I'd be willing to go first and break the ice, so to speak.

What are your thoughts?

Old cardboard boxes in the attic always tend to reveal things you never knew about. 

After looking through some pictures of my parents' youth, I came across my own photo-album - stuffed with baby pictures and cards saying, "Congratulations! A daughter!" I couldn't keep my eyes away from this tiny kid with the blonde, jumpy curls. I ripped out quite a few pictures and put them in my room so I could remind myself of what I was once like. 

Eagerly, I went through the whole album and when the end of it was near, I starting seeing a slight change. I flipped one of the cards around and read, august 2002.

And then you stop, and think, this is why I've ripped out those baby-pictures.

I want my childhood, my innocence back. I feel like a 30 year-old trapped in a 18 year-old body.
