A passenger in a rolled car. A head injury.
Miscarried two years into the marriage.
Emergency c-section. Extended hospital stay.
Son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of five with a blood sugar over 900. He almost died.
Saved my son from drowning.
GPS placed on my personal vehicle by an employer.
Toxic work environments.
Dad passed away.
Blocked from attending my Dad’s funeral during COVID at Arlington National Cemetary.
Cancer. Subsequent surgery.
Forced to leave my toxic government job.
Sold my house.
Gave away my belongings to those in need.
Moved to a cottage to heal.
Mom passed away.
Betrayed by friends, family, co-workers, and bosses.
Accused of actions I have not taken.
Blamed for behaviors I have not exhibited.
Stood alone in integrity.
Found God, again.
Reclaimed my power.
I am confident.
I am valuable.
I am worthy.
I am deserving.
