    2. Whenever you feel sad, just remember that there are billions of cells in your body and all they care about is you #earthproblems

    3. @TheRavenxx Aye – I hear that water meters are going to be installed in all local authority houses. To think that we’re surrounded by water.

    4. @TheRavenxx Ah, so it’s an outdoor meter? That’s an awful shame about your green space. Must have bugged ye seeing them intrude, so to speak.

    5. @TheRavenxx In the past there was a huge rift. ‘Twas Culchies v Jackeens. Not as noticeable now. I’m of country stock, as discovered as an adult.

    6. @TheRavenxx Yes, so much better. I talk about the past because I like to jot down memories as they flow. Really shouldn’t be inflicting them on other Twitterers. I can be insufferable in that sphere.

    7. @TheRavenxx…Even though Goldenbridge was on the periphery of the heart of Dublin, the children did not know that fact. Nobody told them so. 2/2.

    8. @TheRavenxx An untrained ‘jam’ teacher travelled up to Dublin each day from Kildare. She constantly reminded GB children of DIRTY Dublin. 1/2

    9. @TheRavenxx Did u live in one of those Georgian houses on St. Stephen’s Green? Never knew Dublin as a young person, due 2 being incarcerated.

    10. @cybernoelie The minutes of the meeting they tried to hide are back on the #RISF website 😉 and their illegal use of data been exposed

    11. Lived in hostels until my mid-thirties. Was so clueless about home life. I did not even know how to cook. Was so naive and institutionalised.

    12. @TheRavenxx It was first time I’d ever learned about that mental illness. It’s the mother of all inherited mental afflictions. Hostel was ok

    13. @TheRavenxx I knew a person during my time who was at art college. She had schizophrenia, and wanted to throw herself out of the top window.

    14. @jackcolleton Thanks for link. I know many survivors who were diagnosed with a PD condition… along with many others besides. @czarkaztik

    15. ‘Sleeping Beauty’ at Grand Canal, Harold’s Cross Bridge, Dublin. Wednesday, 24th February, 2011. 

    16. The Girls’ Friendly Society (GFS) was founded in 1875. Striking Wrennaissance style hostel was my abode for years

    18. @czarkaztik I know. There were survivors of rape from general public, who could identify with survivors & their ways. They joined the groups

    19. @czarkaztik Precisely. Survivors of Industrial “Schools” are well used to spotting idiosyncrasies of other survivors. MALADAPTIVE BEHAVIOUR.

    20. “The ego is the false self-born out of fear and defensiveness.” ― John O’Donohue, Anam Cara:

    21. Your noble friend will not accept pretension but will gently and very firmly confront you with your own blindness.  John O’Donohue,  Anam Cara

    22. It can pay to play ‘stringing along games’ in response to whims of needful people. Because that way, one gets to save face by keeping MUM.

    23. Real friendship or love is not manufactured or achieved by an act of will or intention. Friendship is always an act of recognition. Anam Cara:

    25. Feeding into NEEDINESS of emotionally frail people is actually not healthy. It can have the opposite effect. The former thrive on NEGATIVE attention.

    26. It reminded me of grown-up Goldenbridge children who sucked their thumbs, fingers, and who even bit their toes. Human condition is very frail.

    27. I once witnessed a very disturbed woman in Birmingham going into a foetal shape, and sucked her thumb, as she was carried off in an ambulance.

    28. The survivor had been so denigrated in her past life that her way of expressing anger was to be overly sexually provocative. Pitiful to see.

    29. I knew an emotionally disturbed Industrial “School” survivor who always provocatively used her physical assets to draw attention to herself.
