  4. hi pumpkin/Sarah – we’re actually a joint project so different people write the posts here (and from different countries). Its good to here your getting proper trauma counselling sorted out.
    We’ve also got a bloggers group which anyone can join and promote their blogs or books in- – you’re welcome to join and post links to your blogs in there, its mostly trauma and dissociation so a good place to get to know other bloggers & get some news.
    We’re also busy on our academic site too http://www.dissociative-identity-disorder – its about all the trauma & stressor and dissociative disorders, so there is a lot to cover! We definitely need more on PTSD though.
