I really hope that you don't mind that I reposted your explanation of SIV (again). It's just that I've never seen it better explained & when someone is new to the board & struggling with the understanding of it, I feel your 'blurb" best explains it.

Let me know if you want me to stop.

Kate_Te,

I want to tell you something. A few years back i had two offers to financially back the publication of my "healing journey" manuscript. One of them kept going on and on about how rich I would become because so many SI-er's needed to hear about it. The other insisted that I had to stop posting and "giving away advice for free."

I told them both to stuff it.

Finding comfort and understanding in the chaos of living with SIV is priceless, and no one should be charged for it.

Or denied it.

I use my understanding of SIV and my talent for writing to help others. I do so from a place in my soul that understands, and offers the compassion and care that we all should have been given as a birthright.

How others come across my words, doesn't matter to me. I write and release them, they find who they need to reach.

I get no ego check from having my name attached to them. only a sad tug at my heart when I realize how much the words mean to others, and how far we still have to go in educating everyone about SIV.

The only time I would get riled up about seeing my words re-posted is if they were done so and credited to another. Ago not an ego check, but the desire that no one EVER charges or financially gains from them.

That is one reason that I self publish my children's book on SIV...full control. I can give it way for free...and I do.

Re-cap: its perfectly fine to re-post my words.
I'm not really a psychopath, I just play one on the internet.
