    Cult recovery memoir!#PTSDAwarenessMonth #PTSDSupportAndRecovery #UlcerativeColitis #AnalCancer #spiritualabuse #cultrecovery

    I'm thrilled that a publisher has accepted my memoir, "A Slice of Orange." It is about my life in the Rajneesh cult and the long recovery as I re-entered society. My history of ulcerative colitis since the age of 10 certainly features, but it is not about chronic illness. It is about resilience and recovery from #Trauma of several kinds (I am a trauma therapist). Please go to my website nicolaranson.org to sign up for the newsletter and track when it will be released

    #PTSDawareness

    There's a monster inside,
    mostly invisible,
    sometimes barely contained,
    it's open wounds
    reflecting society's gaslight,
    it's teeth sunk deep
    within my chest.
    A beast birthed
    from the union of
    enduring trauma
    and masked pain.

    I've tried to move forward,
    leave it behind.
    I've tried to banish it,
    beat it,
    break free
    from it's hold over me.
    I've locked it away
    in my mind's attic,
    an act of survival,
    but I'm beginning to see
    there's no real escape
    from this monstrosity
    created from
    pieces of me.

    So attempting to befriend
    what I can't seem to kill,
    I reach out
    hands trembling
    heart racing,
    I coax
    I cajole
    the creature
    from it's den.

    Low and behold,
    this dark beast wanes
    when exposed to the light,
    not really gone
    and far from dead
    but small enough
    tame enough
    that it's bite
    while still drawing blood
    no longer devours
    whole parts of me.

    June is PTSD awareness month. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder can happen to anyone and in a myriad of ways, not just in combat situations. My brand is called Post Traumatic Stress Disorder - Enduring Somatic Threat (PTSD-EST) from decades of living in the chronic illness word and dealing with our health care system.

    This poem is dedicated to all my fellow PTSD-ers out there. I see you. I feel you. I am you.

    #innerchild #Healing #Awareness

    Sometimes the grief I feel over everything I didn’t have as a child becomes visceral and it makes it hard to breathe.

    My inner child is screaming for love, for comfort, for validation.

    I will do everything in my power to make sure my children will never question their worth. 🌻
