Clarification on my earlier post- length of healing

Hello again. [Yes, after not posting for a long time, I am posting thrice in once night. ;-) ]

I'm home now from the place where I was blogging from my Treo and when checking my earlier posts I realized I need to clarify something. I remarked about my friend "D" "Too bad that healing can sometimes be lengthy." Healing takes its own time. I did not mean to suggest that there needs to be a time limit on healing. In fact, as many of us know, healing can be like a spiral - we return to the same issues over and over again in different ways and with different tools. I am by no means judging us when it takes a long time to heal.

Thanks for letting me clarify.

I'm a little confused about how to contact you from regular email. I found your blog on a Jewish Survivor's site. As a survivor myself, I'm looking for ways to crack open the cases in the Jewish community (where I live and all over). Perhaps you have info on advocacy that can be done in my state. I would like to become a child advocate, too.

Esti g,

Thanks for commenting. Good for you for wanting to open up the cases of abuse in the Jewish community. The more of us who have survived and who speak out, the more we can raise awareness, help other survivors and hopeful lead to an end of abuse.

Email me at

I look forward to hearing from you.
