I'm fed up. I'm having an amazing time at Temple. I just broke some novice records at the debate tournament I finished today. After getting up at 7:00 to beat three teams from NYU, I headed home, ready to nap. Instead, I saw that my abusive ex, J, has a girlfriend who made yet another… Continue reading Message to my Past Life: Leave Me Alone

Hi! It’s been a little while. I just came from a Project LETS meeting and I’ll be heading to dinner with a cute guy in a few minutes (yes I mean you bud!). I’m living the life, like I always dreamed I would. I’ve found people who really love me and I love myself and… Continue reading Finding Things I Love

It’s been a while. Sorry for the absence. I’m not all that sorry, though. I’ve been having the time of my life. I started at Temple University about a month ago and, while things aren’t perfect, they’re pretty damn close to it.    I devour my classes and enjoy doing homework. One of my classes… Continue reading College Update: Closeness and Sharing

If you know me, you know that I rarely watch television or movies. I know, they feel like the kind of thing Olivia should be interested in, especially considering how much free time I’ve had, but during my concussion era I couldn’t watch screens in that way and otherwise, I just feel antsy and anxious… Continue reading Mindhunter, Sociopathy and Psychopathy

When I was in seventh grade, I was pulling my hair out. By the time I got to eighth grade, I’d stopped hair pulling. After a friend said something that made me sad and my mother found me sobbing on my bed, she sent me to a therapist.   At this point, here was my… Continue reading My Diagnosis and Medication Journey

There are a few things that have really made the difference in the fact that I haven’t once seriously thought “I want to die” in four months, or a record for me. After my departure from the hospital, my dad and I underwent a series of lifestyle changes that, in conjunction with medication changes, have… Continue reading How sleep has saved my life

Today, I filmed a video. It was an hour long. It detailed the entire timeline of what my emotionally abusive, sociopathic ex did, from the moment I first saw him and remarked on his visual similarity to Harry Potter to the last time we communicated. I got it all out there. My intent was not… Continue reading The Power of Not Posting

I’ve dated more people than can be counted on one hand, approaching two hands. I have been through many breakups, makeups, rebounds and long lost reunions, likely much more-so than folks my age usually have. This is generally attributed to my constant craving for emotional connection, and the number of breakups attributed to bad luck.… Continue reading Breakups: Sociopathy versus Sadness

I’m going to college soon. I’m so happy. I actually got into the college that my ex is going to, and can’t go for financial reasons. A real blessing in disguise. In any case, my chapter of discussing him on this blog is coming to an end. This’ll be the last one, unless something new… Continue reading Gas lighting in Pictures: My Last
