Self Harm Awareness Day, thank you JD Stockholm – fabulous read!!! It is true most of those who harm themselves will indeed go to great lengths to hide their wounds.

On the other hand, this month, my mom would have turned 75 if she hadn’t been killed in 2003. In an interesting bit of synchronicity, my family’s story will be told this month on television on March 3. Investigative Discovery will air a show called Catch My Killer.

The night of the not guilty verdict, and the subsequent days, were overwhelming and joyous. Shortly after that, I decided to enter therapy to begin to heal from my childhood. These last few years have had their ups and downs, and the therapy has been difficult most of the time but I am healing slowly.

The hardest memory of this month: My mom’s birthday, March…
