    My teacher was my FP. How do I move on?

    I had a teacher in high school who I got attached to. She allowed me to be in her class all 4 years. I've literally never even had a friendship last that long. No one in my life has ever acted as caring as she was toward me, and so I started seeing her as a mother figure. I frequently feared...

    When I was taken into care. Did I not have attachment to my mother?

When I was in my first foster home I used to cry myself to sleep because I missed my primary school...

    *Trigger warning* -- Why we don't talk about it

    I wrote this when a sociology student, who's doing her Master's thesis on the topic of talking about traumatic experiences to friends, asked me why it's taken me this long (twenty-five years since it all started, give or take) to tell "the whole story". I'm not sure what I want to accomplish by...
