Keep On Singin' My Song…

Part 1

If you had a theme song, what song would you pick?

“I Will Survive.”

Let’s see…Before I can remember, my parents went through their first divorce (Mom and Dad). I was molested at the age of 4. 2nd Divorce (Mom & Ex-Step Dad). I raised my little brother at the age of 9 when my Mom was a little too messed up to do it. My Mother decided to be gay when I was 11. I couldn’t handle it at the time so I went to live with my Dad. I endured brutal abuse at the hand of my ex-step-mother. When neither parent wanted me, I went to live with a legal guardian several states away. She was also physically abusive. When I was 13, legal guardian got pregnant and didn’t want a child that wasn’t hers anymore. I went back to my Mom. 3rd Divorce (Dad & Ex-Step Mom). My Mom was living with a woman who both hated me and was terrified of me. My Mother quit buying clothes for me until I lost weight. I was a size 16 through High School. Months before graduating, I was kicked out of the house because they suspected that I wouldn’t graduate. I moved in with my Dad who lived 1.5 hours from school and I did whatever I had to in order to finish with my diploma. At age 19 I met the person, I thought I’d spend my life with. At age 20 I had a miscarriage. At age 23, 1 month before our wedding, he told me he was gay.

Today, all that is behind me and I’m happily married to a wonderful and devistatingly handsome man that I will spend the rest of my life with. Still, I think “I Will Survive” fits…

    Oh my….you have been through so much in your life. I’d say that song title does fit you. I’m so happy for you that you’re married to a man that loves you for you; God knows you deserve to be happy. You are a strong woman, wild fl0w3r!!! BTW, I hope for your sake you’re not going to get 20 hours overtime on a regular basis! Sometimes the money can’t make up for our sanity….take care, my friend! =)
