Not much has happened in my world this week. I’m pretty wiped out from coughing. On a positive note, though, I managed to get a prescription for antibiotics, and those have started coughing. I haven’t emerged from my apartment at all in two weeks, and I’m waiting for the cough to stop before I take out the growing lineup of garbage and recycling.
I’m reading a book about DID resulting from childhood sexual abuse (a different book from the one I reviewed this week), and a few things have caught my attention as being a bit odd. One was that the author shared a memory of abuse that occurred on her first birthday, including words that were said to her before and in a different place from where the abusive act happened. I wouldn’t question implicit memories held in the body, but it doesn’t make sense to me that a one-year-old would be able to encode words in long-term memory that way or that they would have sufficient understanding of what a birthday is to be able to encode that in memory at the time the event occurred. Any thoughts?
I came across this on Pinterest. I may have been out of the game for a good long while, but I remain sufficiently on the ball to know that blowdrying one’s vagina is not a good idea, and vaginal burns are not going to be comfortable. I didn’t look at the article that it linked to, but I’m guessing it was written by a man.
This is kissyface Oreo, pushing herself up with that one little foot you can see beneath her white girl-beard.
How has your week been?
