I am constantly afraid.   Don’t get me wrong, I’m doing really well. School is great, my friends are wonderful, my family relationships are good, I have both an internship and a job, and I’m active and healthy. Nothing is tangibly wrong. That’s the nature of PTSD, though.   It seems to me as if… Continue reading I am constantly afraid.

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, K, 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

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

TRIGGER WARNING: Physical/psychological abuse, rape, eating disorders, general mental illness.   This is going to be a long one, so buckle in. I get a surprising amount of questions from friends and strangers alike that are very far off from the timeline of my life. One I get a lot is “so, was that sociopath… Continue reading A timeline of the last three years of my life.

Yes, I'm on Reddit. Yes, I'm a bit ashamed. I like to feebly remind folks that Serena Williams' (husband) invented Reddit, so it can't be all bad! I originally joined it a few years ago to follow the conversation surrounding my favorite TV show, and one of the only I watch, Survivor. I recently used it… Continue reading Relics of Cries for Help: An Old Reddit Post

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
