If you work in any type of place that deals with kids, or if you are a parent, you will be able to understand better than those who don’t.
Kids are strange and interesting little creatures. So curious about everything. I am so happy that I am a mother. But I still have my days where I want to pull out all of my hair. But I also go to the other end, and doubt that I am a good parent and I am sure that I am messing up my boys.
My weren’t planned at all. But I am so happy that I have them. I love being able to see them discovering things and learning how thinks work. I would never change when I had them. I am so happy that they are seven years apart.
I only wish I had more friends who had kids around the same age as my own. But hopefully I will be able to make more friends.
So, Election Day has come and gone. Thank god! I can’t believe the wave of emotions I have been feeling. I will talk more about that later. As a survivor of rape, we need to talk about this. Talking about rape is so important!
I was raped four times by my now ex boyfriend’s best friend. I was so scared. I bought into the thoughts that it was my fault. It was never my fault. I said no. I wasn’t strong enough to fight. I’m talking about being paralyzed with fear of my friends in the next room blaming me.
When they found out I had a hard time letting them touch me. But I did let them hug me after I calmed down.
About a year and a half after being raped, I was contacted by someone from San Diego PD about it. They told me a friend of mine had told them what had happened. But they needed to hear it from me and have it be recorded for my statement. That day I found out he had assulted three other women one of which was a minor. That pissed me off. I started on the path of recovery that day.
If you are reading this and have been touched in a way that was unwanted speak up! No more blaming yourself. You are the only one that will stand up for you!
Tell a friend have them go tell the police with you! Call the police and ask for a female officer to meet you somewhere neutral to take your report.
On why we need to talk about rape and sexual assault: “Though our experiences may vary; the bond of terror is singular.”

I have a thing for essential oils. I love them. The brand I love, is Aura Cacia.
I especially love the lavender oil. Aura Cacia’s quality is very good. Just a small amount goes a long way. But in my opinion, the price is a little high. I would deffinatly buy more oils from them, unfortunatly not as often as I would like.
I love my job. I love that I am able to be home at night, and care for people that need a little extra help. I believe that I was meant to care for others.
