  • Raw & Abuse

     I haven't read this entire post yet because I started to feel overwhelmed, but I was glad to find other raw foodists discussing this issue.  I am recovering from a nightmarish childhood, myself, and living with PTSD.  I have gotten into raw foods in part as an attempt to heal my body, mind and soul, and it is definitely helping.  The survivor of abuse aspect of my journey does complicate going raw, I think, and can make me feel hopeless, sometimes, when I never hear any of the celebrity raw food proponents mention recovery from trauma or mental illness in their discussions.  Once again I feel marginalized, isolated and invisible.  We survivors are not invisible though, and it is good for us to find each other and validate each other's experiences.  We are just as much a part of this world and of "normal" life as anyone else.  Sadly, abuse and trauma are normal.  I will read more later when I am feeling stronger again.  Thanks to all who have posted and shared your thoughts and feelings and experiences.
