I used to hate that word... I would absolutely cringe and feel humiliated that anyone would think *I*, who always thought I could be perfect, was abused. But my therapist has said it so many times, that I no longer cringe. But I still hate the word survivor, and victim, and....abuse. Because now saying I was abused isn't humiliating, but it makes me feel so broken. And I know I'm working towards becoming whole, but still, right now, I just feel broken, broken, broken.

I once wrote a poem, when I was in high school (only a couple years ago) that started something like this -- (I don't have the original here right now, so I can't put the whole thing)

"My life has gone to pieces,
Shattered on the floor,
My hands, like clubs, can't pick up,
The pieces anymore..."

And now someone's finally helping me pick up the pieces. Someone's helping you pick up the pieces too. ((((((Li)))))) I'm sorry. For all of us who were....well.... that a-word.....
