I am not a therapist. I am simply a survivor who is sharing her heart and life experiences in the hope that they just might help another person. What worked/works for me…may not work for you. Any thoughts expressed are not to be  construed as advice. You are free to decide for yourself if something will work for you or not.

Please note the following from the Creative Commons licensing site (emphasis in paragraph added by me):

What are moral rights, and how could I exercise them to prevent uses of my work that I don’t like?

In addition to the right of licensors to request removal of their name from a work when used in a derivative or collective they don’t like, copyright laws in most jurisdictions around the world (with the notable exception of the US except in very limited circumstances) grant creators “moral rights” which may provide some redress if a derivative work represents a “derogatory treatment” of the licensor’s work. Moral rights give an original author the right to object to “derogatory treatment” of their work; “derogatory treatment” is typically defined as “distortion or mutilation” of the work or treatment that is “prejudicial to the honor, or reputation of the author.” Creative Commons licenses (with the exception of Canada) do not affect any moral rights licensors may have. This means that if you have moral rights as an original author of a work, you may be able to take action against a creator who is using your work in a way you find objectionable. Of course, not all derivative works you don’t like are necessarily “derogatory.”


If you use any of my work on a site that is in any way attempting to negate any of my life experiences or to redefine them in a such a way as to attempt to invalidate my truth you are violating my moral rights.

If you use my work on a site that is promoting any kind of product for sale, you are using it for commercial purposes and that is expressly forbidden unless you get permission from me.
