Healing Wounds

Published by


I am a Mental Health Advocate for mental illness Stigma. In 2007, I created the "Living in Stigma" blog, with the purpose and anticipation of educating people about mental illness. Depression is part of this illness, which intertwines with those struggling with PTSD, chronic pain, and other invisible illnesses. I am a chronic migraine sufferer myself, and a sexual and emotional abuse survivor. My passions are writing, poetry, and art. All abuse Survivors are also Warriors.

    1. The wound is always there, sometimes it heals over for a little while, and at times it opens up again when triggered and feels as if it’s festering all over again. A truly exasperating feeling, especially when you believe you have tackled your issues and are on track now. Thanks so much for commenting. 🙂

      1. Yes, exactly. You think it’s gone for good until you realize that there is some residue of old hurt unresolved. Some traumas never quite go away. But, we can make the most of our present life and try to live in present tense which is hard to do at times. ❤
