This is a personal blog written by an adult and intended for adults. The opinions expressed here represent only my own, and not anybody else’s, including maybe even yours! I am NOT a professional nor am I offering a professional opinion.
The information provided on this site does not come with any warranties, guarantees or any other intention. The only intention of this blog is to help myself heal and give myself an anonymous and safe place to express myself, and to allow others to do the same. I would also like all survivors out there to know that they are NOT alone.
The writings on this blog have been edited to my tastes, and only to please myself. Some themes are sure to be controversial, offensive, horrific, and hopefully sometimes inspiring (see Triggers below).
Be warned that I sometimes curse like a sailor, and make no apologies for it. The way I see it, most topics I write about are the most powerful of my life, so I need some powerful language to express it. We are all adults – deal or leave!
Commentors on this site are encouraged to be radically honest, so their writings are also covered by this disclaimer page. Remember, their comments represent their opinions, and do not necessarily reflect my own. All comments are moderated before posting, so your comment will not appear until My Monster has approved it (see Etiquette below).

Please be advised that some material on My Monster may trigger abuse survivors. If you are unaware of what a ‘trigger’ is, it is when certain material may be disturbing because it contains images or language that may remind you of your abuse. This might be in the form of explicit material, (such as disturbing images) talking about abuse, religion, profanity, or suicide and/or death.
