Hi. My name is Tamara and I am new to this community. I am a domestic abuse survivor. A little over a year ago I left the man who was abusing me and I am doing much better. For the most part I have moved on, but once in awhile I think about what happened and it hurts. It makes it hard to trust anyone. Fortunately, I am with a great man who loves me for me and does not hurt me in any way. I have always found comfort in writing. A lot of my poems and prose are about overcoming abuse. The writing in this book also includes various issues like suicide, love, mourning, death, revenge, growing up, and finding oneself.
I recently got my book, "Stumbling and Mumbling", published and it is up for sale. I know I am not supposed to advertise here but I believe that people here may be able to relate to what I have written and it may even help them. I have learned the importance of knowing that you are not alone in your fight.
My book is being sold for $7.99. It is 144 pages of my poetry and prose.
