I’m Katie. 23yrs. Am almost a doctor, studying, with one last exam to be certified 🙂

I’m a very easy-going, fun-loving person, usually the first one to laugh out loud & not stop. Lol. Hard for anything to bring me down. Nothing annoys me more than cribbing & hyperventilating folk.

I started this blog as I was getting out of domestic violence. Shame, pain, not wanting to talk about it, led me to writing about it. Realizing that DV is more common than it seems, one need not hurt more blaming oneself again and again, being able to get that hurt out of me bit by bit has helped my growth out of it.

When DV and depression struck me, it was all hidden beneath that shell I wore around me. No one knew. I dint ask or move for any help. Landing myself in trouble neck deep. Now I’m stronger, braver and I hope to come out a better person.

Currently I’m away from home but still under completely overbearing parents that make progress very difficult for me. Writings are mostly bout past which trouble me, times when I hope to inspire someone in abuse/pain, and struggles I face as I inch towards that exam, which melodramatic maybe, but holds the key to my freedom.

Everyday I learn struggles faced by me are not all that huge compared to so many others. Sometimes I feel ungrateful, greedy and like a cribber.

I’ve a lot to be grateful for. And I praise my Lord for that. He’s been my stronghold.

These days, most days, I dream, I dream of little things…..of the day when my door has a lock and not that dent of the lock broken away……I dream of not being scared…….I dream of being able to touch somewhere near what I hope to achieve…….I dream of not having to hear painful words everyday…..I dream of being able to speak my mind without having someone lunging for me.

“If you think you are beaten, you are,
If you think you dare not, you don’t
If you like to win, but you think you can’t,
It is almost certain you won’t.
If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost
For out of the world we find,
Success begins with a fellow’s will
It’s all in the state of mind.

Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But sooner or later the man who wins
Is the man WHO THINKS HE CAN!”
~ C. W. Longenecker ~

    Nice to meet you. I studied physiotherapy and during my years as a student have also forgotten the healing benefits of writing. I’ve taken it up again and it does wonders for me. I hope that you would find the same as you journey back to your writing too. All the best with your studies 🙂
