Response to rpannier (Original post)

16. i was raising kids in those years.

 

oldest born in 75. then 1st of 4 in 85.

the eldest grew up mid-panic. she delighted in baiting me w this stuff- the symbols and the rituals w her equally rebellious friends.

but the middle kid was always troubled, and really did the whole occult thing as a teen. after the 1st one, it sorta scared the bejesus out of me.

but all of them loved magic and fantasy. that wasnt really what scared me.
that kid had a small hypoxia at birth, and i know a whole lot of other moms spend a lot of time trying to figure out their slightly 'off' children. i struggled w this child from the time she could talk.

she's a successful adult now, but she still struggles with migraines and joint pain and other weirdness. took til now to draw that line.

the overlay of this insanity was like a weighted pack i carried for a decade. even tho it was wearing off by time the shit really hit the fan.
that and the persistent freudian lens of- it's all mommy's fault.

it's amazing how little it takes to set a family spinning.
a subtle difference in a kid gets an overlay of both pathology and panic, and everything goes wonky.
