This page is dedicated to anyone who has been through hell and back.

Whether you were beaten, sexually abused, neglected, went through trauma, have ongoing physical and/or mental issues, or just don’t know how to cope; this page is for you to see that you are not alone.

There are people just like you. We are out there and we are struggling too.

People who don’t know how to act around others or avoid people at all.

People who don’t know how to talk about or deal with the things they’ve seen or been through. We find it nearly impossible to “let go” like people tell us to do.

You are not alone.

Please feel free to share your stories here if you like or just read mine. I promise you that I will tell you my truths without reservations and will let you see what I’ve been trying to hide for so long. I’m ready to get it out. I’m ready to be different.

Some of the things I will write about will be depressing or vulgar. I may write about sexually explicit things and describe sexual abuse in detail. I will also tell you about my deployment and the things I’ve seen.

If you are a person who gets “triggered” by reading about things that may offend or incite emotions you would like to avoid then this blog is not for you. I will not cater to people who cannot handle a little discomfort.
