Shannon, I don’t know you personally, but dang do you ever touch my heart! Thank you for sharing such POWERFUL things like this! Way to make the world a better place!
I was going to a program for women who are at high risk for breast cancer because of family history, and they had me speak with a nutritionist, a geneticist, and a therapist. I didn’t quite understand the need for the therapist…until she walked in the room and asked me a question about my high risk-ness, and I started bawling and could barely speak. I realized that I have been carrying around a lot of fear, stress and anxiety about getting cancer before 35 that I had been suppressing.

I think some people might look down on her parents for this, but ultimately, if she is resisting treatment because she associates it with her parents, then maybe it is best for the 3rd party to step in.
I hope she gets the help she needs. I worry for her safety.

Wow, she looks so much like she did back in the 90s! I have always loved her face.

Congratulations on all of your marathon accomplishments! I think back to your first marathon training posts and it seemed like such a big goal for you! You have come so far, it is very inspirational.
Well done, Trent. Now you can sit back and relax with all of your medals!

Re: terms. I read this funny story on parenting the other day, and in an effort not to implant the idea that self exploration is shameful, the mother said to her very young daughter “We don’t touch our vulva at the dinner table.” It is such an odd statement, but the mother was trying to avoiding saying “we don’t touch ourselves there”, and instead wanted her to know it was ok to touch yourself…but some things we do in public and some things we do in private.

I agree. I didn’t believe the pebble thing, 1 year olds just aren’t that coordinated and they do tend to have diapers on. That being said…I don’t think I remember things accurately from 7 years old.

Exactly. She wasn’t trying to get sexual gratification from this, she was curious. Don’t kids go through phases of being focused on these areas?

“While the house owners agreed to let “SATC” use the facade as Carrie’s home for the show, they’ve since grown tired of the frenzied fan attention and want privacy”
By “agreed” they mean “signed a contract and got paid”. I don’t think it was good for SJP to use their stoop without permission, but they can NOT get upset that fans and tourists are constantly taking pictures of their front steps. They signed up for that and were paid for it. If they didn’t have enough forethought to think that it might continue after the show was off the air, that is their own fault.

Yeah, I don’t buy her thoughts on the video at all. I was surprised that she would try to hide from it, instead of just owning it like you said.

I have heard many people suggest the use of heroin here.
I think the difference between falling asleep in a class or a movie, is that in those cases people are passively observing and staying stationary (in a theater, you’re in the dark too). In this situation, she is in the middle of a conversation with someone in a lit room!
