Having A PTSD Crisis Here…


So this morning I texted Mr. Attorney Man to let him know that my Order of Protection expires in a few weeks. Renewing it was something that I had been somewhat pondering but mostly just pushing out of my mind, and I wanted to at least touch base with him and see what it entailed

I’m Still A Victim


It has been a long day after a long week. I hit the ground running Monday morning after three days packed full of 4thof July festivities, and I haven’t stopped since.  Tonight when the kids were finally sleeping hard in their beds, I found myself rummaging through the fridge — not really hungry but at

The Perfect Victim


Did you know that according to Popular Science, roughly 5% of women who are raped experience an orgasm during the assault?

Seriously, Enough Is Enough


You guys, I am so tired. I slept ohhhh……maybe an hour last night, probably less. I had a hard time writing this post. I kept writing, deleting, crying, writing some more, deleting again, crying, and so on. You see, I have good news; I don’t have to go to court on Monday. Yay! Right? Am

Death, Rescue Me


Did you all know I write poetry? I can’t remember if I’ve shared that on here before. Most of my early work and my first published book, was all poetry. I haven’t shared my poetry in a long time because it has become intensely personal, but tonight I guess I’m feeling open. **Trigger Warning** I
