I have been told countless times, received so many messages, that the posts I write, from my heart, many people with PTSD, or C-PTSD, or with a severe abuse history – relate to, and it helps them.
When I had my Facebook community page up and running for a year, the amount of people that resonated with my posts, and found they could understand themselves more, and were truly thankful for my posts, were significantly high.
I don’t want to write my autobiography, detailing my past – I can’t even talk about some of that, yet.
But, I have many saved copies of the most popular posts I have written, which are always those written straight from my heart and soul, with honesty and depth, that people in this journey, want to read.
So, I have decided to go through them, and figure out how to compile a book, with a page, or two, dedicated to each post and a heading.
Plus, I could add some of my poems, that are definitely not about literary ability, but less about how they are written and more about the content of them, and again how other relate to them – of which many have been described as powerful.
I want it to be a book, anyone can relate to. Not those of literary needs, just your average person – like me, who is on this journey and needs to feel validation, needs to know another survivor understands, needs to know they are not crazy, they are very normal for the life they have lead.
In fact, I could call it ‘Not Crazy, Very Normal For The Life I Have Endured’.
Whether I will ever publish it, who knows, but writing a book, is something I have always wanted to do.
