Thank you for visiting my blog. I am honored that you have taken some time from your day to wander through my thoughts and I hope you will find something that will make you laugh, give insight, encouragement, inspiration, or maybe just a glimpse from a different perspective.

I love to write. I am re-learning the process as I attempt to find myself again after being trapped in a four year relationship with a sociopath. I sometimes deal with heavy topics like mental illness and domestic abuse. I write to help with my own healing, I share to raise awareness.

I have been told I have a way of boiling things down that can make people uncomfortable, and I don’t always edit my acid tongue. If you are easily offended, you have been warned to avert your eyes.

Thank you,

  1. Ouch. I read some of your posts and I am almost speechless with sorrow.
    I had some terrible times when I was young; so bad in fact I thought I’d never survive them. But having not just lived through them but also found some good on the other side I look back on those terrible times with pride that I not just persevered but that in living well, I prevailed against those that tried to do me harm.
    I encourage you to keep writing – to keep digging for the truth – but not so far that you bury yourself in the pain. Work hard. Live pure. Think. Dream. Follow your instincts.

    1. Hi Mex,
      It is not my intention to cause people sorrow, but to raise awareness. I hope you will forgive me if my words have caused you stress. I am still digging myself out of years of supressed pain, and hope that in the end I will have the ability to live and dream without fear. I sincerely appreciate your wisdom and encouragement.
      Thank you,

  2. I wish you well in your recovery process…. There is a blogger that has also been through much and writes of it…and has a forum for those who wish to participate…if you’re interested it is buckwheatsrisk.com Diane

    1. Hi Diane,
      Thank you for your kind wishes and for sharing such a lovely resource. Reading the stories of other survivors has helped me come to grips with my reality by opening views to other perspectives, and allowing me to laugh and cry over hurt I thought would never heal. I am grateful to all these brave women for sharing, it plays a significant role in my recovery process.

      1. While I have not suffered from abuse….I know from reading others’ blogs the trauma that’s involved and the website I gave you….she is such a wonderful person and working her way out of abuse and into recovery….I suffered from depression for much of my adult life…but have been free of it now for only about 4 years….but abuse is something totally different..Diane

  3. M,
    It wouldn’t let me leave a comment on your latest post, so I’m leaving it here.
    It’s a fab feeling to wake up without dread of the looming day ahead, isn’t it?

      1. I love the post you just put up about Friendship – I totally know what you mean. I’d love nothing more than a good lay….but I sure don’t want to be that intimate with a man & I’m not all about the stranger-sex thing – too many diseases. And I don’t want some guy to save me – I need to save myself & get situated before I can give anything to anyone. And right now, your girls take every extra bit of healed self you have to offer. I’ve moved into an area where I have no friends. I don’t know yet if that is good or bad – but where we had lived, I couldn’t heal any more in “his” town. Hang in there! M

leave some love
