@164: I'm just now coming out of 50 years of undiagnosed PTSD. It doesn't happen overnight.

@161: A white girl growing up surrounded by black people is regarded as "white," with very good reason: at age 18, I walked away from Northeast Portland, and no one knew how I came up. My self definition is: "color of white, treated as white all of my life."

The reference to National Geographic is quite interesting, because Ms. Diallo previously stated her brother molested her after getting excited by pictures featured therein. There were also charges against the same brother for molesting another sister. I am from a German, religious zealot family which includes violent child molesters. I hope Ms. Diallo and her sister can move on from that horrible family.

LW#1: You and everyone else are worth more than liquor. I agree with Maya Angelou - the very first time the line is crossed, deal with it immediately and as harshly as necessary. Don't you think these monsters have done this before? They know it's wrong, that's why they bring the liquor.

Best of luck in your situation. What is done in the dark comes to the light.

Anyone who intends to commit to a long-term relationship, or a marriage, when the sex problems are this significant, should spend lots of time reading Dan Savage, Dear Abby, Carolyn Hax, and multiple other advice columnists who regularly get letters from people who are still having the same problems, ten or twenty years later. Marriage solves very few problems, and sex is not one of them.

The second session for Kind of Blue was recorded April 22, 1959, the first session was recorded in March, 1959. I love the PBS show because the credits show the drummer as "Jammy Cobb." No one could spell back then, either.

Quite the collection of spoiled children today. All of them need to grow up!
Mar 20 marilynsue commented on To the Tourists Who Hate Visiting Seattle: You’re Doing It Wrong.
No offense, I have relatives in Kent and the last time I was there, I never even considered going into Seattle. The traffic is terrible, my friend on Bainbridge Island was sick, and there was nothing in Seattle that was worth the time. Don't get me wrong, I would live there, but visiting, not so much.

I've had mushrooms, LSD, therapy, and meditation, and now I stick with meditation 4-5 times every week. I also write a lot. I had undiagnosed PTSD for over fifty years, now I still have anxiety dreams, and they wake me up, but I'm not afraid to go back to sleep. Good luck!
