This blog is my journal. I just choose to share it with the world instead of keeping everything inside my head. I'm a recovering Borderline and have also struggled with Avoidant Personality Disorder. I also have Complex PTSD due to having been the victim of narcissistic abuse for most of my life. I write mostly about narcissism, because I was the child of a narcissistic mother, and then married to a sociopathic malignant narcissist for 20 years. But there's a silver lining too. In some ways they taught me about myself. This blog is about all that. Not all my articles will be about NPD, BPD or other personality disorders or mental conditions. I pretty much write about whatever's on my mind at the moment. So there's something for everyone here. Blogging about stuff is crack for my soul. It's self therapy, and hopefully my insights and observations may help others too.

One Response to Daughter’s weekend trip to Gatlinburg, TN (photo)

  1. I spent many summers in G-burg during my undergrad years, treading the boards at the now destroyed UT owned Hunter Hills Theatre (to make way for another sports complex, of course – boo hiss). When I was there Dollywood was still Goldrush Junction, and Pigeon Forge was still a sleepy little pass through to G-burg. (Discount Mall traffic jam city came much later).

    I dated a “townie” for several years of that time – and it took a while for me to get used to the fact that they all identified each other in introductions to outsiders by their parent’s businesses on the strip that most tourists never get beyond: Candy Kitchen, Jolly Golf, Package Store, Ripleys, etc. My guy Jack was “Open Hearth” – a marvelous steak house to which I was taken for many truly incredible meals (they’ve since expanded and moved across the street).

    I have a couple of these photos of myself, both from G-burg and the top of the Empire State Bldg. in NYC – one with a female roomie, and one with a subsequent beau — but mine were more Victorian in feel. They have a lot of costume choices. Thanks for the memories.
