Day 7: Today’s Prompt:
Ø Say WHAT!? What’s the most ridiculous thing you’ve heard about health or your condition? Where did you hear it and what did you think?
Ø Share a ludicrous headline or cure. Do a news search and choose a ridiculous headline or proposed cure about your condition and write what you think about it. Can’t find one? Write your own.
Ridiculous misconception- I have treated many men who were sexually abused and recently published a an e-book on recovery for men who were sexually abused. There is a myth that boys who were sexually abused will grow up to become pedophiles and abuse a child. But 95% of men who were sexually abused in childhood will NOT ever perpetrate or abuse another.
Ridiculous cure- there is a form of therapy in which people who have been severely traumatized will be held by their therapists in order to re-parent them. This is referred to as, “The omnipotent therapist and the angry, entitled child.”
