“CleftCast” — Emotional Abuse Within the Cleft/Craniofacial Community …

And here you and I are again, reconnecting on this blog for another “CleftCast.”

To say that there have been technical issues at my end over the past few weeks is, shall I say, frustrating.

Nevertheless, the squirrels were back on their work wheels this morning (after plenty of nuts) and all is well.

This “CleftCast” #podcast focuses on emotional abuse within the cleft and craniofacial community. This continues a series about facing and talking about “taboo” subjects.

Well, forget about the “taboo” part.

I’m talking about it and, I hope, that you will listen, download and share the #podcast with your friends. Or simply listen over and over for yourself.

Download it through the link here or through iTunes or BlogTalkRadio.

Many thanks for your support and love. We’re in it together, friends.

Every minute counts … and you are loved.


Blessings and peace,




“CleftCast” — Mental Abuse in the Cleft/Craniofacial Community …

Hey friends … Yes, I know I have been lax in keeping this blog updated.

So beyond posting the “CleftCast” #podcast links here each week, I will commit to writing one new, fresh blog post each week throughout the fall. I’ll get a writing schedule going and, well, away we go!

This week, I talk about mental abuse. Instead of writing a lot of words about it, I will just say that — to me — mental abuse is truly horrible and sad.

With that being said, my hope is that this “CleftCast” will help anyone dealing with mental abuse issues. Remember: I am not a licensed counselor, mental health professional or all of the above. These are only my life experiences and observations of others from which I am basing this #podcast around.

I hope you find solace in it. This fall, “CleftCast” is going to be talking about taboo subjects … the ones that “no one is supposed to talk about.” Honestly, many people within the cleft/craniofacial community have things come up in their lives that no one will listen to them about. Let me hear from you! Drop me a topic suggestion. It can just be a topic title … if you want to get deeper and into more detail, then that’s your choice.

Download “CleftCast” through iTunes or Blog Talk Radio. It’s free.

Every minute counts … and you are loved.

Blessings, peace, love and light,
