• latin / verb- i suffer or feel pain on all sides.

i am a survivor.

not a survivor of a single victimization, but of many over my years of life.

i have been feeling lately the need to share that fact with the world because i see a world that could use a little more hope.

i am alive and i enjoy my life. i am happy.

this could not be if i had given up, if i had quit. i thought perhaps a place for myself and others to share stories and some of our tips for passing through this life could benefit some in need.

that is why this is here.
