There isn\'t enough room to tell my whole story but here\'s a summary of how possible starting over can be. I left in the middle of the night with my three young girls. When I married him he was charming and swept me off my feet, I was 18, then shortly after we were married he showed me his true side, he was an alcoholic, and very violent when he was drinking. I fled to a womans shelter, not knowing what I was going to do or how I was going to support my children, I decided then and there the best revenge is success.
I went back to school graduated with my high school diploma and went to college, all without a car, working two part time jobs and raising three girls. 13 years later my girls are grown, doing well and I am doing what I love. I am a Registered Nurse and love it. I learned to love myself, lose weight and pulled myself up from the bootstraps, and found out there's alot more to life than I ever dreamed possible.
I have fallen in love with a wonderful man and have a new little man that no words will ever express how much I love him, he is my grandson. It wasn't and isn\t always easy but with a little ambition, perseverance and a whole lot of moxy anyone can do it.
