Well we had a really rough night last night, another one of those got into bed and was wide awake nights. That is so very frustrating. Then our back was hurting as well. We know it is body memories. No matter how we layed we couldn’t get comfortable, but we finally fell asleep and feel decent today. We woke up with the cat laying on us, what a cutey he is.
We have been doing really well with SI lately. We don’t want to conceive or carry a child while harming our body, that is like harming the baby, we won’t do that.
There is this urge to burn the body, not an urge really, it’s more like a need, something that someone inside feels she ‘has’ to do. That she is bad and she must pay.
We finally found out what ‘system’ this members is from, narrowed down who it is. She said some really strange things. We know most to nothing about what Ash wednesday actually is. We know someone inside knows but she isn’t speaking up about it.
This little is talking about how she was warned to not talk to not tell, or share or anything, and that if she did she would have to burn. That she would be turned into ashes for being a sinner and then they would use those ashes during ash wednesday. She’s terrified and we’re terrified. There is only one of us who is currently able to help us with this stuff inside, and we know she is working on it, but we all in the meantime feel terrified and just plain lost.
The dream itself was very strange, we are running home, it’s a long way, we run through people’s yards and one teen notices, takes us to his mother, his mother says how great I am running, and invites me in. She is being so nice I don’t feel I can say no. In the kitchen I notice she has a green tall cup. I am bothered but don’t know why, I push it down.
She starts talking about how we need to know things, she will help me learn. She goes off to get something. A girl (approx. age 10?) comes she has this rope, but it’s a metal rope with a plastic cover (like the dog tie outs) There is a gathering crowd outside in the front yard. I warn everyone and then swing the rope down, it was hooked into the ceiling. It hits the ground with a thud and again I am rattled. The woman of the house, announces I will be singing with the rope. I don’t understand how that came about. I begin to walk with the rope, to where I will sing, and the dream ended.
Well today we are struggling. We have something we have never had before. An overwhelming urge to burn the body, and burn badly. Along with it is the thought that we have to punish, that we have been ‘bad’. That we have said to much, etc. We are fighting this very hard.
We feel sick today, spinny and terrified.
This is a rough day for us, all of the easter season is difficult for us.
This year we have a plan to help us get through- we plan to cross-stitch (see our cross-stitch blog for more on that) through the next weeks. We are extra nervous as since we are trying to conceive we cannot take the sleeping meds we usually take, that we also use to help us calm down.

We had a strange dream last night. We were at this school we used to work at, the pap was with us, we were there to do odd jobs. We were in a bathroom stall dipping fixtures in paint that was mixed in water. We kept commenting it was hard to get the paint on evenly with dipping it how we were. The pap was in the next stall doing something and talking to us.
content I don’t remember here.
Then we are biking with the mother, home from that school. It was a 40 mile bike ride, the mother kept wanting to stop at McD’s but we didn’t but we stopped anyways.
When we woke up our legs were exhausted and still are, feels like we really have been biking!
