Hi all. Wow. I sleep for a piddly few hours and boom. LOL! I'm astounded at the response - normally I get ignored when I go places.
First, no. I don't think of my "gifts" as a burden... mostly because I know that nearly all of the human race has these "gifts". They're not
"gifts" to me. They're skills you can either hone or ignore. Kind of like learning to walk or read and write. Everyone has their own style of doing
things, everyone has their own level of interest that can encourage them to get better. Or not. Nowhere did I even say "gifts" were a burden. O_O
And that's a topic for another thread on another Monday.
Anyway, I'm not revealing as much personally as I used to in the past. Just enough to encourage conversation. Been around with stupid people before
in forums and lists. The stupid people are the main reason why I haven't graced forums much with my presence in the past 10 plus years. There was
this one person who contacted me privately, right? Got my life's story, then went public and claimed my events as her own. I can only say WTF... that
you gotta steal histories to make yourself important.It's rather pathetic.
I had an ex-husband try to have me locked away in the crazy house so that he could get the kids without a fight. (And the computer.) That didn't hold
- personal belief being legally sacred and all that still back then. I'd worry if it were now, though. But that's another topic for another day.
As for the original topic, I would hope this is the forum to discuss it. It's aimed at a situation that's all too real for people in the kind of
situation this forum is geared to discuss. It's related.
I deal just fine, myself, and came to terms with a lot of things a long long time ago I'm also lucky: my husband listens to me, usually, when I come
to him bleating with tears in my eyes. Or after a pick up when I sit up in bed freaking out - although at those times he's usually pretty helpless
considering. I've actually seen him get "shut off" mid-word. It's scarey.
But I deal because of the tactic I mentioned in the beginning. I was simply hoping others would also have tactics they could state bluntly. :-) But
I'm seeing the tactics anyway, and I thank all of you for it. Greatly.
So far I've gathered that I'm probably the only one who blogs it.
Talk about it here with like minds
Feel secure in the knowledge they're not alone or not crazy
Haven't been touched by it so enjoy the bliss of not knowing
So far so good! I'm excited.

Rather than telling someone with a story like yours "I don't believe you," I prefer to hold the position that, "I don't know one way or the
other, because I'm not in your shoes." I think if more people adopted that philosophy people like you would feel less isolated and hurt.
I completely agree with you. There have been things people told me that seems really off the wall - and for me that's saying something - and I just
politely sat there and listened. Sometimes it turned out they were right. The human languages are colorful to begin with, even Chinese, and I keep in
mind that when sailed ships first came to America they were described by the local tribes as "strange boats on big white clouds".

Iv'e posted some of my encounters...(you all know it get's tiresome reposting it all)...
Let me guess...the zombie men had a sort of putrid yellow skin? ...any exposed meat, like inside the mouth, would have a sort of bruised blackish look
Khurzon, I'd love to hear your encounters or find them where you've posted them to save you typing time. :-) I've seen those things, too... and
yes, they can be putrid. Yes, exposed meat. The leader had it on the side of his face and the other.. I can't remember if he had bone showing or not.
I can tell you I once saw a clip of The Living Dead and freaked out. Those were my zombies. Just. Brrr. My husband forbids me from seeing things like
that. He's the deployed veteran, but he doesn't want to "deal with the triggers" with his 'pathetic civilian' wife! LOL.
I can tell you the leader was blonde. His cut was very short. And yes they are air force uniforms - which surprised me at the time I saw one on tv,
having never seen air force blues before my encounter before. Ah well! More confirmation for me.
