Just about me!

With all the crazy crap going on just wanted to say a little about me before I leave for awhile. I was ganged raped at 9, hit by a car the following year, in the hospital for 2 months and lost my memory of must until my 30's. I married my H.S. sweetheart right after H.S. and divorced after 20 years due to his drinking and cheating. I do not drink or do drugs at all. I have an amazing son who I raised on my own since he was 6. He never got a B in his life. He married his college sweetheart 5 years ago and have a almost 3 and almost 1 year old. They work for our government so have lived all over. Main language is Arabic so live in strange places, now live in North Africa for that was Jordan for 4 years where my granddaughter was born. She speaks English and French and some Arabic. I am so proud of them and what they stand for. So when I say I have an emotional support dog that travels with me, it is not a lie cause they travel with government passports. My dog was so loved on the flight that they even said he could come out of his carrier. Oh and my ex died in my arms of cancer and my mom died in my arms of Alzheimers, both lived with me when they died. That's me and I do believe I will leave here in a few days. I just don't need drama. If I wanted that I could just look back on my life and oh yes I had an older abusive brother. Now you know all!

I cannot imagine the suffering you have endured, and my heart goes out to you. I don't know exactly what happened on this site, but I hope you don't let one bad incident ruin your experience on this forum. There are many good people here who are happy to listen and give support. If you want to leave, that's your choice. But you're always welcome to come back. I'll keep you in my prayers.

Thank you! Most of the times my past doesn't bother me because it made me the strong women I am now. I do have bad night terrors so sleep is something that is hard for me. My story is nothing compared to a few of my close friends, so I am very lucky. I am so open and honest to a fault is what my mom always said also if you cross someone I love I will go at you will full force. I have one cousin and her family, my son and his and that is all, everyone else has died very young. Need to go out a shovel some more for my little dog. lol jkl5500 Thank you so much

OMG what wonderful words of encouragement. One of my favorite songs, which you might not know, is "Overcomer" by Mandisa. I listen to that often. Music so helps me sometimes sad and sometimes powerful. Tina Turner, What's love got to do with, brings me to a happy place. I love 60's and 70's music. My age, I guess and where I grew up makes me love Motown.
