I was watching an old episode of the TV series MASH this morning and Alan Alda’s character was main focus.  They thought he had come down with something and they were trying to investigate just what it could be.  Alan’s character kept sneezing and itching. They gave him Benadryl and had him pretty much […]

Used by athletes and celebrities looking for their next holistic fix, the high tech treatment is said to be more than just a gimmick. According to its regular users, freezing yourself for several minutes can […]

The military community has lost several veterans recently. My heart goes out to the families involved. The reality of PTSD and its effects on our military is ever more present in our everyday lives. My husband even changed after coming home from deployment. He won’t admit to it at all. After being screwed out […]

Flashbacks

Flashbacks, in one word can bring you to your knees.

Over the years I have been affected by three house fires. The first was November 1994, 34 degrees and it was raining. The day and time are not as vivid in my mind anymore. This was the one was while I was still with the biological […]

Some of the early years

Listening to the not-so-good advice of my biological father I put my son up for adoption when I had him. On the 3rd day at the hospital I went one way and watched as he went with the foster care/social services worker. I cried thinking at the same time it would be the best […]

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. […]

So here it is. The start, the beginning. Although I am a bit unsure how to do this so bear with me. I have been told on several occasions that I ought to ”write a book” about our lives. I am not beyond sharing our story I just don’t want the ”wrong” attention. You […]

Mirror, mirror what do you see?

Who do you see when you look in the mirror? 
Do you see the struggle, the strides, the scars? Or do you see what those of us see that know your obstacles?  The strength you were given to carry the weight of 10 men through the desert. Do you see the fragility of a blooming […]
