Purgation: a cure for Purgatory?

In Ayurvedic medicine, the cure for excess heat symptoms is purgation: taking some substance (senna leaf tea, for instance) that will give you a tremendous case of “the trots” for a few hours and expel all of the fire you’ve been holding onto, that has given you anger, hemorrhoids, ulcers, inflammatory illnesses, migraine headaches, and a host of other fire-related problems.

I’ve been doing the mental equivalent: spilling my guts in print.  I’ve been writing about my life for years and years, and have hundreds of pages sitting in my Documents folder.  So I’ve begun to set about organizing them and publishing them in my new blog, http://dinaleah.wordpress.com/ Dina Leah: Story of a Teenage Runaway.

If you want to know my true story, here it is, in serialized form.  It’s painful, and full of triggers; but I hope you’ll read it anyway, and engage with me in your comments, as I would like to use it as a jumping-off point for discussion of issues that many of us hold in common.

I bless you all to have love, light, and peace in your lives, good friendships and relationships, and remember to look up!
