I came here to Authorsden

to meet others who write.

 

To share with each other.

I would like to share with you so you know who I am and I would like to get to know who you are..

 

I came from an abusive background in childhood and married into abuse.

 

I am alive to share that we can have a good life.

 No matter where we came from.

 

I have gotten out of that prison I lived in...

I have became free from the prison inside of me.

 

I was given up for adoption when I was five months old and in 2005

I found my birth mother.

 

In 1995 I got clean and sober.

That was when I let the Spirit touch me and direct me, my life has changed for the better...

 

I  am a Lupus advocate I was diagnosed with Lupus (SLE) and fibromyalgia in 2004 and that has changed my life and made me really stop and look at where my life is taking me.

 

Since I was diagnosed with Lupus (SLE) I have had to change my ways and have had to come to a different way of living. I do not do the things I used to do any more.

 

I used to be very active and 

I danced Ballet and Jazz. 

I worked for over 20 years was very active.

 

In 2003 I woke up and was not able to get out of bed I was 38 years old and was put in a wheel chair for most of that year.

At that time I did not know I had Lupus.

 

In 2004 I was put on medication for Lupus.

 

When I found out I had Lupus

I felt like it was a death sentence. I had no idea

of what Lupus was, or what Lupus does to a person.

 

I was scared and full of fear, so what I did was search on line about lupus. I read up on what Lupus does to a person.

 

 I joined support groups and asked questions and met friends.

 They helped me a lot I found out that I am not alone. and that I can

make a good life for myself. Even though I am wheel chair bound and home bound my husband and I have a good life together. It is not easy to live with Lupus or any other terminal illness. But because of the love I have and my faith I have. I try to make each day a good day.

 

My goal now in life is to share with others about Lupus and give support to people who have Lupus and to their families. I try to keep updated with Lupus and keep updated with the new findings I have a private group on facebook for people who live with different illnesses.

 

As you continue to read through the pages here on Authorsden you will read more information about Lupus and Fibromyalgia, RA, and other autoimmune illnesses, I share how it has changed my life in a postiive way.

 

 You will read about Alcoholism, Drug addiction, and Child abuse.

 

The reason I am sharing my story through my pages is because I would like to share my life and how I found joy and love from going within.

 

I want to share with you that no matter where we come from, what we did, what we have; we can have a good life. We can be happy and we can be free.

No matter what life brings us we have the strength from inside of us to get through anything.

 

Some people have asked me why do I write?

 I write because I find answers.

 

When I write the Spirit takes over and that is where I find the answers.

I believe that the Spirit works through all of us.

When I write I am in total peace and serenity.

 

I write about my feelings, experiences in life,

and my relationship with the Spirit.

When I write I am free.

 

   I invite you to join me in this wonderful journey of writing.

 

I share my thoughts and put them on paper now here at Authorsden I am able to express myself and meet others who are doing the same thing. Some of what I share could be triggering to some people as I do share about abuse but I try to not get into detale to much.

 

Glad you stopped by we are here to share together.

Come join me.

 

"If you cannot see the beauty in one of God’s creations;

you are not looking through the eyes of God."
 

"God so loved the World that He gave theworld You."

 

 

Accomplishments

Been sober since 1995. Came from an abusive childhood full of different addictions. I work with others who have addictions, and with others who have different illnesses. We help each other. I am not a doctor,
I am a Lupus activist. I went to school to be an addiction counselor. I learned a lot in the classes, it was a wonderful experience. I feel my calling is to volunteer with helping others when asked, on line and on the phone and in person. I have been with my husband since 1996. We love God and put God first in our lives that is why we have a good marriage. I do Inspirational speaking when asked free of charge. We all have struggles we go through in life, the important thing to remember is we are not our struggles. We are beautiful children of God. When you let God work through you in your life, you are showing the love of God. That is my goal. To share the love of God.
