About Me

It took me 35 years to put my roots where they belong, grow branches, and finally blossom. This blog will be real and raw and share the thoughts and actions of me as a girl abused by her father for 16 years, parents divorce, my brother’s schizophrenia, my escape into marriage, plunge into depression, suicide attempts,  my no longer young marriage, and a glimpse into me now trying to be the best mother, wife,  and just the best me that I can be.

I am living proof that you can in fact return from the point of no return.
