I am a fighter.
No matter how tired I am at night
I get up in the morning ready to face the day.
Life wasn't always like that.
There were so many days that I was exhausted 24/7.
And even when I did go to sleep, I didn't sleep.
Then, when the morning came, the only thing I wanted was for the day to be over.
Those days, filled with so much misery and dread tested me to my limits.
I don't know why I was never successful with the times I tried to end my life or even why or how my body sustained such terrible treatment, neglect, and punishment I put myself through.
Yet my heart continued to tick every second and bring me to a time that I was ready to embrace life, deal with the crap, and move forward.
I am married to a man that I met at a writing group and have 2 big dogs that bring a lot of joy to my life. I like to go camping and hiking and spend time with my friends and family. I have been a registered nurse for 10 years and work with people who have mental health issues and people with drug and alcohol addictions. I have been in recovery from my eating disorder since Oct 2013.
