Dear Melanie.
Thank you for sharing your story, I was gripped from the first minute. I am so deeply facinated by the things our brain will do to cope with our experiences.
All the best,
Cami

You are remarkable -

I listened and I was just amazed at your strength - I do not think that my little broken girl self would have survived - and you did - my stuff isn't nearly as terrifying and unsettling but I know how fragile my fear of people meter is and this may have made me a hermit for life -

Your strength your message and your life choices are inspiring and I wish you to continue on your journey to healing and know that your story and your mission is helping start others healing and that makes my heart happy - I am working on my own healing - hearing your story makes me ready to get my big boots on and start mucking through my memories in my mind and start working on my stuff!

Thank you for all that you do and for sharing so openly and honestly -
Just another messed up chick, who hates her body and face, and voice, and thinks she is useless and her stuff isn't that bad and she should get over it.
