I have years of torture, abuse and pain under my belt so I'm not sure how to begin to start with this section. @_@'
I guess with this;
I'm a female, I have an incredible stubborn streak, I love watching the wind in the trees, I have 2 adorable cats, and I have been on this roller coaster called life for 24 years now and am just trying to keep the tracks from derailing underneath me at this point.
It's hard right now, but with the support of those I consider my true family(my partner, my 2 best friends and my furry children)I am coming to realize that the world is far bigger and more amazing than I was ever allowed to believe.
The best way I can describe it is in my own words from my 24th birthday, when I made a promise to turn my life around...
"If I had known the world was so big, I might not have felt so small..."
I have been through hell on earth from day one of my life, and I'm very happy to finally be looking forwards to the possible future instead of being stuck in the terrors of my past.
I've found that eventually you get used to odd looks, the misunderstandings and the sorrow of knowing more than you should about pain and heartache...But it never really stops hurting.
I have very low income and I'm on SSI for the PTSD and anxiety problems I have due to my past abuses.
I consider myself extremely lucky and quite blessed to have even the small amount of income that I do.
Making my bills and being able to have anything left can be a very challenging balancing act though.
I recently moved(again) and have finally settled into an apartment I can afford.
I'm reluctant to say this, but it's starting to feel like home.
If you'd like to know more about me and what I'm all about you can visit my blog; http://aovaa.blog.com/
It's not completely done being set up yet...But hopefully I can get my small voice to be heard a bit more clearly this way. ^-^
Thanks for the support!
