Everyone feels overwhelmed at certain times in their life. Everyone needs to hear, “You can do it”, “I care”, everyone needs a Helping Hand or kind word. Reach out to those in need, you never know the difference it could make in that person’s life or yours. We All have something to give the world, even if it is just a hand to hold, an ear to listen, or a heart to share. You don’t have to change the world, but you just might. As survivors of abuse I feel it is our responsibility to help others going through it and educate the rest of society. The only thing that will end domestic violence is educating people and ending the silence. Silence perpetuates the problem and enables the abuser.

I think everyone at one time or another thinks, "If I only knew then what I know now." I share my life experiences in hopes a few less people have to look back and want a "do over". Through my Lady Witha Truck blog I have spent 8 years sharing my experiences while being in an abusive relationship with a man I consider to be a narcissist/psychopath and through my other blog, Reimer Reason I share lessons learned throughout the 60 years of my life. No experience is a waste as long as you learn from it and if I can save someone else making the same mistakes I made, then it makes it all worth while. I am an expert on my life, not yours, my opinions are my own, not yours, and I enjoy open respectful communication on most topics. If I don't have an answer I will research it until I do. I have a sweetheart of a dog named Stella, a 4 year old Pitbull, Mastiff cross. I am artistic, enjoy bringing new life to antiques, gardening, refurbishing and repurposing other people's "garbage", reading, writing and being outside in nature. I have a 34 year old son who I am extremely proud of and a 7 yr old granddaughter I don't see near enough. I live on welfare after a lifetime of working full time because I have heart failure. I have gone from being a home owner and landlord to being homeless and living in my car. I continually strive to be the best me that I can be and look at life as a learning experience and an opportunity to learn about other people and myself. Never a dull moment!
