Hello everyone! I am new to CDH and I go by Rachel.
My earliest memories are of playing “dress up” with my mom. She collected dolls and she used to dress me up (as a toddler) like one of her dolls (I think she always wanted a daughter). I remember that time spent fondly, but it triggered something inside me that never went away, and as I grew up I continued to “dress up” in secret.
Like others, I went through numerous cycles of dressing and purging over the years, and eventually (mostly) set the urges aside in favor of marriage, family and career. But a few years ago when my mother passed, and I was going through her belongings deciding on what to donate vs what to toss – those repressed emotions came back like a tidal wave, and Rachel could no longer be kept in the closet.
So I’m here to explore her side of me and to help Rachel be all she can be.
