My Life, My Time

They have taught me to write down how I feel so I decided to write them into poems.

My name is D.M.
Born in 1969, I grew up in the North East of England.
When I was younger, I was sexually, physically and mentally abused by my two siblings.
Things have been extremely hard these past few years. My biggest problems being with nightmares, flashbacks, suicidal thoughts.
If it wasn’t for my very good friends, my Care Coordinator and Counsellor in helping me deal with the abuse, I wouldn’t be here today.
They have taught me to write down how I feel so I decided to write them into poems.
Through this book, I would like to encourage other people that have been in similar situations to get the help they need before it takes over their life the way it has mine.
Always in my thoughts.
