My name is Theresa.
I am the product of my genetics, my environment and my thoughts. Yes, I am a blonde, natural blonde.
I am a survivor of relationship abuse. Although encouraged by others, I have not brought myself to writing in detail about my life altering experience. I feel that I am past the violence and the many years of unhappiness prior, and I have worked through PTSD symptoms. I have told and retold the story, the dark history, the struggles, the sequence of events to police officers, mental health professionals, lawyers, juries, family and friends.
Almost thirteen years later, I recount the event with an expression of absurdity because I continue to learn additional information about my ex-spouse. The absurdity of the circumstances and my foolish trust make me angry. I have chosen to channel my anger into strength, strength to fight a just battle and to carry on.
I choose to carry on within an optimistic light, with vigilance as one of my guides. I also have embraced my enduring sense of humour through observations of lifestyles while working full-time and volunteering with organizations that educate and nurture the love of reading.
In 2011 and under a pen name, I published a bittersweet novel through Smashwords titled The Year of the Rabbit; it’s a novel about Fate, Family and Forgiveness. It contains many themes like family, teenage pregnancy and belief systems.
Thank you for dropping by.
