It was 1992, I was working at Pizza Hut as a waitress and living with a couple who took me in. I met her after committing myself to a mental hospital after being raped by an ex-boyfriends uncle who I thought I could trust. He kept me locked up in the bedroom for weeks. […]

An invitation to our lives

Not so easily triggered

By |October 18th, 2019|Family|4 Comments

You know I feel for folks who have gone through trauma but I am not the one that is so easily triggered by things.

Through my years I have gone through things, done things, put myself in situations I shouldn’t have, gone places I shouldn’t have, yet some things I wish I could speak on. There are some things I honestly want to talk about but I can’t. I am pretty sure there are some of you reading […]
