Round and round...

I am grateful to be a survivor, to understand this part of my history and my life. Comprehension is a gift. Yet, I find myself a bit frustrated. Over and over again I return to my history in new ways. Once my therapist described it as a spiral - - as we grow through life and through our survivorship we progress and come to the same issues with (hopefully) new tools and new information. Yet, we come back to the same issues. That is what frustrates me. If only we could grow and not have to come back to it. I wish.

Hi Leah,

I empathize with your frustration. Ever see the movie "Groundhog Day" starring Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell? You might enjoy seeing it (or seeing it again). I think it helps put a laugh where there is often sadness and frustration.

And then, of course, there is EMDR, which is one of the best ways to get rid of troublesome memories.

Best of luck,

I think that we always revisit and relearn our history as we grow older. It took me a long time to see that it's not "regression" or going backward. It's how we learn, constantly, how our past strengthens us and gives us lessons as we move into new parts of our lives.

Excellent and simple Blog- I like this because it’s informative and simple nature. This is a great piece of work appreciable. Mean time an important issue is updations. I request you to update this blog when ever possible. We require most recent information and I am sure your blog can provide them.
.. Cancer is difficult and really dangerous illness that kills millions a year. If we can provide any help to save at least some of them- it is always nice Some times people are saying malignancy is incurable. But I have seen a website detailing that holistic treatment can cure Cancer even in 2ndry stage. You can logon to and know further.
What ever it is. My personal request to all of you to work and gather information regarding this subject and let others also know further. I can say you millions of people are still on earth suffering from cancers – some of them even doesn’t know what cancer is all about.
Whether this is holistic or allopathic or homeopathic I want to put and end to the sufferings of millions of less fortunate people – My heart sings for them. I request you people also join.
I Hope for the best
