I Chose to Live

(Location Undisclosed)

All I can say is there is a God and he sees it all: 
I lost 3 brothers due to the after effects of severe sadistic abuse, the trauma they received as so did I, that would not let us function properly. But my siblings chose to die and I chose to fight mental illness and live. I am a gift from God and I live loving my friends praying for the rest of my family and making sure that my health is well some days are up and some are blah but I put one foot in front of the other daily. You must work hard but it gets better.

One thing I never forget is to celebrate my brothers on almost every holiday - rest well R.I.P. my angels. We miss and love you.
