The horor Days are coming: Xmas and New Years. For all TI's it may be more difficult, I know for survivors of TBMC it can be just unbearable. Things may be closed and accessing resouces will be difficult. When I was younger the hammer would just come down during this time..memories would cut me mentally. Remember how badly the system wants you gone for whatever thier reasons are. That is what this is really about and dont give it to them. If you read up more on torture and its affects especially sophisticated phycological torture like TI's experience you will see that you are probably reacting perfectly normally to your situation.
What I would like to see a peice on is how the addition of systematic ignoring by the aware as well as the unawareness of the general public adds into the equation.
These two factors are what really have the affect of wiping the personality and causing things like becoming docile and forgetting what happened. I beleive that denying the victim the reality of thier own life is the final insult.
