This is my story. I think it is important to note “my” story and my perspective in the moment. My perspective will change at times once I have digested something and given it more thought. I will not however hold back from writing because I am afraid I will change my mind or find I am completely wrong. I want this process to be one that I share with others for a couple of reasons. I believe that being afraid of admitting we were wrong can sometimes paralyze us and keep us from writing. I am not afraid to say I am wrong. I am not afraid to apologize. Secondly I want to express what I am feeling when I am feeling it. I want to be raw and open when it is happening because I want others to understand that it is OK to feel. Do not be ashamed of all the natural human emotions that you have. I am doing my best to not be ashamed of what I am feeling. I will not tolerate shaming of myself or others when it comes to this. I may cuss and I may have pity parties sometimes. That is not something I want to do regularly but it is what it is. I will be writing about the past, the present and the future and how it relates to me right this moment. I suffer from PTSD, Anxiety and Depression and this blog is about the life I live.
My name is Rauncie. I am 56 years old and I didn’t ruin my life. I am recreating my life even as I write this.
