Geeky people babbling like brooks. In a forest of trees. Non-geeky trees. The metaphor breaks down somewhere in there.

I don't think people realize how sexual abuse can influence some lives. I think it depends on how long it went on and how it was handled after it was revealed. I had a third-grade student who came to my class after going into the system because she was being abused by her family. I don't know the specifics, but I still know her adoptive family and she continues to have many problems. A loving family adopted her and that has helped, but she will never be "normal" and able to live on her own.It's funny, but the only time I could drink coffee was when I was pregnant with Bart. I drank it because I got headaches and couldn't take Excedrin. The coffee had caffeine in it and that helped. Now, Bart can't stand coffee. Are there other people who get nauseous when they smell some kinds of coffee. That happens to me with some of the strong blends.
