Wow its been a while since I’ve posted on my website. I have been through a pretty interesting time so far. I had the honor to be part of an Intensive Outpatient Program.
This program helped me immensely. Meeting others with who have been abused. My fears of being a liar and making up my abuse have been completely shattered. I was not a liar. I was not overreacting. Reactions are described as:
a person’s ability to respond physically and mentally to external stimuli: a skilled driver with quick reactions. • an adverse physiological response to a substance that has been breathed in, ingested, or touched: such allergic reactions as hay fever and asthma. • a chemical process in which two or more substances act mutually on each other and are changed into different substances, or one substance changes into two or more other substances.
Who am I without my abuse? For so long I ignored it, I pushed it away. My mother would often just yell at me and call me outside my name. Or she would use my middle name. This is why I want and will change it. my chosen name is Erica Beatrix Brooks.
Erica: Everkingly. Beatrix : Bringer of Joy. Brooks: A Stream.
The King Who Brings Joy Like A Stream.
There are so many connections within my name given and chosen. My instagram tag is :Exploration of the Wave. To explore means
:ravel in or through (an unfamiliar country or area) in order to learn about or familiarize oneself with it
