About This Blog

Mental illness and religious abuse converged upon my life at an unfortunately early age. Later in life, during my early adulthood, this pattern emerged once again. It became something of a recurring theme, the side effects of mental trauma sort of echoing down through everything, creating a filter of negativity that I have come through trial and error to understand that I must work towards deliberately letting go of, as it creates all kinds of problems in general. I don’t know if I could have worded that any more poorly. I’m thinking maybe not. But I’m going to leave it like that for now, because I am the boss of me.

This blog serves as a sort of personal journal to document the ongoing recovery process from this particular amalgam of psychological damages.

Basically, when I finally hit absolute bottom, and realized that I was either going to actively engage in the recovery process or wind up dead as a result of chemical dependency, I began scouring the Internet for resources. I Googled everything I could think of.

“Recovery from Bible-based mind control.”

“Surviving cult abuse.”

“I drink because I feel like, no matter what I do, I fail really hard, and somewhere deep inside I seem to believe that God hates me because of this.”

I mean, I Googled a whole ton of stuff, and while I did find a lot of resources that seemed very well put together, I just didn’t see anything that really seemed to apply to my situation in any meaningful way.

That’s how this site was born. Who knows? Someday it might actually become a real website with stuff to do and things to see! For now, though, it simply serves as my own little weird corner of the Internet, where I go to write stuff down from time to time.

I hope you enjoy it!
