Hello all! I just joined - my patrner has been using this site for a while, and has just recently gotten back to it. She was telling me about it and reading the supportive replies she has received frome her cyber circle, so I (finally) deicded to give it a shot myself.
What to say about mself? Where to begin? Well, I guess I should say that I have come from a very horriific and traumatic past, but am pleased to be walking on the path and journey to my healing. I am 32 years old, have my degree in Nursing, but am currently on disability, as my past came up to bite me in the butt not long after i graduated university and began working. I have been hospitalized too many times to count for everything from sucidie attempts, self harm, depression to anxiety and utter hoplesslness.
However, I have recently decided to try and get back to my roots so to speak (though, as I write this, I am not really sure where my roots lie) and, am hoping that this site will give me the strength to return to the path that I have been strayed from for the past year or so.

We all get along here for better or worse! :) I wanted to be a nurse once, but never carried it through. Did take some of the course work. Ended up being a medical transcriber and violin teacher! You have had your share of troubles. I hope everyday gets better and better!

Thanks Christine for welcoming me! I am also wondering if anybody on here would like to to read and share poetry. I actually have a whole book of poetry that i have written (and am trying to get a grant so that I can be published) and would love to be able to post some of my poetry and get feedback on it. I entered a poetry contest online via Facebook, and am a semi-finalist........also they are publishig 3 of my poems in their book called Stars In Our Hearts, which is really exciting for me. The names of the poems are Forever Friends, Memories Of Mom, and A Childs Wings. This is one:
A Child's Wings
There is something so precious when a child get their wings
With all the never ending possibilities that brings
Everyone steps back to watch the first flight
Holds back the tears and watches with delight
And we all hope and pray
That somewhere along the way
We have taught the child what he needs
And has all the tools to plant his own seeds
For each child goes through this milestone
That very special day when they have grown
When they have become little people in themselves
And we just pray that in their heart, we will dwell
For on the day of their first flight
We send out a plea, a hope, a might
That this child will remain in God's arms
And he will be sheltered from all of life's harms
Because even though they have taken flight
That does not mark the end of a parents fight
To give their child everything he could ever need
And allow him to be prepared for the lead
It is with happy eyes that we watch this take place
And bask in the glory of Gods grace
For our children are precious and we hold them dear
Even those times when we cannot hold them near
Any feedback, reviews or comments would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for reading.
