I decided after reading plenty of blogs out there to start my own dealing with myself, my family, my life and dreams. My name is Milos, I am a 22 (nearly 23) year old mother of 2 living in a itty bitty city in the middle of no where in the grand state of Iowa. I am a eclectic Wiccan (beginner who has always craved magic) who hopes my two children will be raised to love and worship nature as much as I do. My life to put it simply is something that could have been several lifetime movies.
*my father was a drunk, he developed Hep C and cirrhosis when I was 11, my mother a heavy smoker and she developed emphysema when I was in 2nd grade.
*My father began to sexually abuse me when I was 10 years old to when I was 13. My mother knew because I told her yet she never did anything about it.
*He was physically/mentally abusive to the entire family.
*My mom ended up in the hospital several times during the course of her emphysema because she couldn't stop smoking, the summer of 2001 she took a turn for the worse and passed away August 1st leaving myself, my sister and brother alone in the world. Instead of suffering through anymore abuse the day after she passed I called the police to report it. We ended up in foster-care and have since then all aged out of the system.
*because of my abuse and my mothers death I developed several mental disorder: PTSD, depression, anxiety issues, Borderline-personality disorder, EDNOS (eating disorder not otherwise specified, leaning toward anorexia).
*I started cutting myself the year before my mother died and have struggled with it ever since, even to this day when things become stressful I have a hard time not resorting to cutting to deal with it. My arms, legs, torso are covered in scars.
*I've been admitted to the hospital a couple times in the psych unit.
Now that I am a mother to two of the most beautiful children imaginable I want to make sure they have a life I never got to have, one filled with sunshine and laughter. With dreams, hugs and kisses, with hope and love. I am here as a human being, sharing my pain in the hopes it helps others like me.
May the Goddess find you all in bright spirits.
