Tricia reminds us that even though we might not be able to physically participate in a cause, we can still do something about it. She also remind us the power of prayer. She writes:
I feared history might repeat itself at Standing Rock. As NPR put it succinctly, we have never seen anything like this before and it has been happening for hundreds of years.

This is a great site to check out if you are struggling PTSD and/or anxiety. Tracy shares a lot of honesty in her words. Her most recent blog post explains how she is an addict. She’s not addicted to drugs or alcohol but to overindulgence, kinda like me and that’s why I enjoyed this. She writes:

Wow!!! Another amazing blogger that you need to be following. The blog post she shared for this RoundUp is a perfect example of what every parent deals with when they know something is not right with their child and everyone else is denying it, even the doctors. I may not have a child of my own but see the fight my girlfriend has to have when no one take her seriously about what is happening with her son. Claire-Lois writes:
My second pregnancy was very much a surprise. I was on the contraceptive pill when I found out I was pregnant with baby number two. If anyone read my first blog post, you will understand why I took this surprise pregnancy as almost a second chance. Read more at Then There Was Autism
