that’s been my life thus far in a nutshell.
as a victim of physical, sexual and psychological abuses for the first 20+ years of my life, it’s safe to say i felt pretty screwed up coming out of it. i had seen despair, i had felt hopelessness, but never as profoundly as i did entering recovery. in these last few years, i’ve had to catch up on life and pull myself together. it’s thanks to my spirituality and the love and support of friends and family that i’ve made it this far.
writing has always been an outlet for me. when i was younger, it was my escape from an abusive and dysfunctional upbringing. now, it helps me to make sense of things. this blog has been with me since almost the beginning of my recovery and has chronicled all the ups and downs.
i’m an open book. turn a page.
