Such a heinous act...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Hayley, I'm so glad you got this memory out in one of your counselling sessions. And as you live with the memory of this horrible incident and feel the emotions attached to the horror of it all, including the betrayal from your parents for not seeing and doing something to stop it, I do hope you'll discuss it all with your counsellor. It is in what I call "hashing out sessions" that the real healing can begin.

Thank you for sharing with my visitors and me. And do take care of that head injury.

P.S. Great pic! I smiled ear to ear when I saw it. Love the fact that the hockey stick made it into the frame. Shows us all an element to your personality. It endears me to you even more.

Worst night and hockey
by: Hayley

Hey Darlene, I agree, talking about that horrible night really did help. The nightmares are still there, but I'm glad I managed to talk about that awful night.

As for the hockey, that was actually one of my er less crazy moments. There is also a picture taken of me that same night sucking a giant dummy to the amusement of my team mates! Unfortunately I can't get that onto my memory stick else I would. I have other pictures of me playing, though only in our 2-2 all draw in our last home game. Our only point this season! My head is better now, pain free for a couple of days now and training again tonight. I somehow managed to buttend myself in the chest on Saturday and suffered for it at work. Thank heavens for little white tablets in the name of Paracetamol!
