Never Miss a New Post.
As I write this, it is one year ago today, that I left that awful life behind. I first began writing about my experience with drug addiction and domestic abuse the first few weeks after I left. Sifting through old emails and text messages to try and put all my memories in some sort of order.
It was only after advice from my psychologist, who told me that writing is a therapeutic way to process trauma, that I began to think about writing a memoir. The rest, so they say, is history.
It isn’t easy to stand up in front of the world and talk about your truth, but if doing so can clear an easier path for others to do the same, then it is well worth it.
I am now living peacefully in my hometown with my daughter. We have a new dog; a beautiful black whippet named Simba.
