Taboo Topics is a series dedicated to sharing stories from real live people [mostly who i know] on real life issues, situations or experiences that are seldom spoken about for various reasons. So far the topics that have been addressed [with links to all the stories] are the following:





Dealing with the Grief of losing Someone you Love

Eating Disorders

Fostering a Child


Living with Disabilities/Special Needs

Losing a Baby

Marriage [when it’s not been easy]

Mental Health

Parents of Young Children [where it hasn’t all been easy and fun and struggle free]

Pornography and Masturbation

Sex Before Marriage

Sex in Marriage



I hope these will be of encouragement to you and to friends and family who you know who have been through similar things – please feel free to share the stories or send links to people who you think might appreciate them.
