Welcome to
more layers down under....
If you're new to the emotional feelings network of sites, then sit back & ponder these words carefully. It's important to absorb the concept of "the layer down under," "the layer down under that," & then "more layers down under!"
You see, when you're recovering from addiction, dysfunction, trauma, abuse, well.... if you're recovering from something, you might ask,
"how long is this going to take?"
Some people think that all it will take is to get some counseling & some meds & you're better within a few months. Think about that for just a minute. How can people think that they'll wipe away years of addiction or dysfunction with just a few months of counseling & medication?
What you will be doing in recovery, if you are attending counseling & taking meds is to scratch the surface of the top layer of problems to solve.
Then.... after about 5 years or so... you begin to dig deeper down to the layer down under that....
And then if you hold on long enough.... you'll reach more layers down under!
And that's when you begin feeling really good.
Have a great success story & study hard.

Welcome! I hope I can help you find what you're looking for! Anytime you see an underlined word in a different color you're being offered an opportunity to learn more than what you came here for.

abuse 101


Abuse and domestic violence were once included in the original site website I designed - anxiety understanding - but had to be taken out when anxieties 101 became a reality. It was important to me to include this in information pertaining to mental health because I personally lived in domestic violence my entire life, but had never known about mental illness.


Even after visiting the emergency room almost everyday for one year, no one ever told me I might be experiencing an anxiety or panic attack. I had several endoscopic procedures and saw specialists regularly, even took Percocet while pregnant to control my chest pain because the specialists didn't understand what was causing me the unbearable pain.


I was finally diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder, depression and an eating disorder. I firmly assert that all victims of abuse and domestic violence need to engage in a mental health assessment when entering shelters, as well as their children. If mental health was a priority, perhaps it wouldn't take women so long to leave their abusive husband, partners, parents, or whoever instead of it taking up to seven times of leaving the abusive situation to finally leave for good.


The following pages are found on the abuse 101 website:


the homepage

Welcome! Once again, I had to personally include eating and sleeping disorders in my own personal growth recovery journey so a website emerged concerning them all. I personally have dealt with night eating syndrome, an eating/sleeping disorder most of my life. I moderate a support group for night eaters, visit the site by clicking the above link to join the group. You'll see the link on every page to join.

Eating disorders, mental health, abuse, domestic violence are all connected. This was a very difficult part of my recovery. Although I beat eating at night, my sleep remains disordered and my eating habits are still not as healthy and consistent as they need to be.

To learn more about the site, just click on the link above! Here are the pages included within the night eating website:

the layer down under

I thought of the name for the next few sites because throughout my personal growth recovery journey it seemed that I was unpeeling the layers within to find more things to discover and figure out within my own self. So as you go through this site - you'll find the second stage of what I found was needed for a personal growth recovery journey and as you visit the next few layer down under sites, you'll see how you are peeling back the layers of time in your own journey as well!

different religions

Throughout my personal growth and recovery journey I've had to become very truthful with myself concerning how my religious beliefs swayed my thinking throughout my difficult past. Defining our own personal religious beliefs, I believe, is something very important instead of just adopting the beliefs of our parents. Take a peek and see if anything touches you!

the self pages

The self pages started out because I found the need to learn more about myself in my personal growth recovery journey. This site speaks to "self" emotions and feelings; for example - self acceptance and self confident. It's important that we learn as much as possible about our own selves as we can't move forward in personal growth and recovery until we've faced our own self. Check it out. The following pages are available on this site!

children 101


In keeping with my original theme in anxieties 101 - I wanted to take the gender/age groups a step further with their own personal sites. Information concerning children is of the utmost importance since children don't come with how to manuals when they are born; I feel it's important to look at our own upbringings, realize the results of the parenting practices of our parents and then teach ourselves what different parenting skills are needed to raise emotionally and physically healthy kids!
