Dear Kerri Lynn when I read your story I think "what a strong woman'!
To endure all that you have and still be standing is powerful and empowering. Thank you for telling us your story. You are brave and expressing yourself and what you've experienced not only gives others hope but it helps you heal. I know that it must be difficult to think about how life has been thus far but you should be proud of yourself because you are reaching out and that's very important. I hope your day improved and try not to allow some who are clearly expressing their pain, albeit inappropriate, to negatively impact you further.
Have a good evening.
