Let’s see where do I start? After my grandmother passed my mother soon found herself on drugs. We lost everything. Had to move from place to place; rain, sleet, or snow. Sometimes leaving our belongings behind. Abusive relationships were common. On several occasions we had to jump from a two story home to escape. I soon found myself in a gang of unhealthy relationships and activities. I went from nearly dying giving birth to my first baby at seventeen to stripping in nightclubs. I can truly say I’ve lived my life by the gun, once robbed at gun point. Jailed for aggravated assault the list goes. I fought because that was all I knew how to do. Life and its ups and downs… My biggest upset may have been the very rumor my very own mother spewed. I had aids… I am still going through healing and pain. Still going through fighting the demons of my past. Read this journey of daily repair, a raw uncut tale of hurt, pain, and recovery.
