    I was surprised; a nice surprise. I didn?t promote it.
    I shared w my daughter. She said: ?I remember too.?
    I think we will end up revising this story with both our memories.

Flyaway1: Hi,
My name is Karen. I live on an island in the puget sound among tall trees and wreckless sea.
I started writing about two years ago as a tool to help manage my mental illness. I was diagnosed w a complex mood disorder in part due to a very traumatic childhood of abuse. It has been a great outlet for releasing pain and correcting some of my very distorted thinking.
My writing is extremely personal and can be hard to read. I am a novice. Many tears have come with the writing. It is very raw, emotional, intense and yet strong and hopeful at times.
I have had good recovery for almost 3 years now. I am not cured, but I have the tools to survive.
My focus and hope is that some of my writings will resonate w others with similar limitations.

I am a survivor.

    trimple: Nice to meet you Karen. Welcome on board. I was also abused, but, I wouldn't give my father the time of day to let him still fuck me over. Don't let the bastards grind you down. There's no fresh fruit in the maggot broth of yesterday. Chin-up girl.

    hugs x

    Dreamer18: Hello Karen, it is an honor to have you here for I am very new to this.. ☺️ I am also a survivor.. That lives with a lot of mental ailments. And all of my poetry is raw, written from the depths of my grief and moments of love and joy, I'm heading to read your poetry after this.. 😊 remember. Out of suffering have emerged the STRONGEST SOULS, the most massive characters are seared with SCARS. Chin up and always strive to be better for you.
