I am a lot of things: a human being, a woman, a friend, a patient, a client, a student, a worker. I am intelligent, funny, selfless, hard-working, honest, and caring (to a fault). I am also a victim of what many deem unthinkable trauma. I’m working on rebuilding myself piece by piece, and repairing all of the damage caused by decades of abuse.
This blog is about my journey, from past to present to future, from my experiences as a survivor of child abuse to my everyday struggles living with PTSD and DID. Sometimes it’s full of hope. Other times, despair. I write from my heart.
I cannot take away what happened to me. I can only try to heal from it.
