About 6 years ago, I started the process of leaving my marriage. Like so many others, I stayed too long, thinking that I could save my husband and believing it was my duty to keep our family together.
When I finally got out, I felt a sense of peace and safety that had been missing in my life, and in my children’s lives, for many years. Still, the memories continued to haunt me, and so I started this blog in an attempt to put those memories somewhere, so I could move on. It seems counter-intuitive, to relive the past in order to move forward, but suppressed memories have a way of showing themselves and so I am releasing them.
When I was right in the middle of everything, I felt very isolated. I hope that perhaps some of what I write will help someone in a similar place feel less alone.
The facts: I am Mom to 3 wonderful children. We love our animals and have cats and dogs, and a pony. I recently received my Master’s in Mental Health Counseling and love my work as a therapist.
