Welcome to IGDID


To provide a unique environment where folks who have experienced trauma can openly and safely talk. We strive to respect, validate, and learn from each other.


Achieving our goal requires cooperative collaboration amongst members and staff. Members posts remain appropriate and relevant to topics. Terms of Service are clearly posted to help members maintain the dignity of the board. Members of this group are at a stage in their healing to independently regulate their own behavior, as well as keeping themselves safe while on the forums. Staff regularly monitor posts and replies to ensure the board remains a safe and comfortable environment of learning for everyone.

As a friendly and kind community, we validate each other as equally special and significant.

These forums are active and the community not too large or too small - about 400 posts per day. There are many forums on different topics. The topics range in subject matter also. You are welcome to interact as you feel comfortable.

This is a safe place for members. We encourage building coping skills, learning from each other and material shared. We discourage sharing explicit memories of past abuse. We feel that processing memories be done with professionals. There are no practicing therapists on these forums. Therefore, topics that call for therapist type responses are discouraged.

Feel free to look around. Realize that, as a guest, your view of the forums is minimal. These forums are otherwise private to the public view and/or search engines.

We have literally hundreds of articles and provide workshops for everyone. Please feel free to email me anytime with questions. I am also providing a tutorial that should help with navigating our site.

The very best to you,
Felicity Lee

Homeless Man Plays Piano Beautifully (Sarasota, FL) (ORIGINAL)

6 million hits in just a couple days.

I mean, the guy is brilliant and there are similar videos out there like this. I just wonder why this draws such wonder in people. I was homeless as a teen for several years. I loved the people I met. A couple of our teens have a tough time not just going back to the streets. We were cared for, never hurt, protected and loved by some of the most talented and intelligent people I have known in my lifetime.

Not saying there weren't dangers or it wasn't a difficult life - mainly getting food and health care, but being homeless does not reflect 'who' people are. One of my challenges throughout my life was trying to help get the children who are under 16 off the streets and into homes that are safe. They can't get into adult shelters - 90% of homeless teens come from abusive homes -

Anyhow, don't get me started - right? Just saying....
