I grew up for the first 10 years in the town of Pt Augusta in South Australia. At the age of 10 I was sent to live with my biological father in a little outback town in New South Wales called Bourke. I was only going for a holiday with my older sister and brother however one month turned into forever, or so it seemed.
Our father was abusive in every way, emotional, mental, physical and sexual. I felt abandoned by my mother, how could she leave me there, alone and frightened, knowing that I loved her and needed her. It was 15 years before I escaped. I have since fought with depression, anxiety, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and a whole lot of other mental and emotional disorders that go along with that type of trauma.
My mind was my biggest enemy, all the what if’s, and the hardest thing for me to do, was to accept that it actually wasn’t my fault and the older you get the more you blame yourself too. You fight demons every day, and it seems that they win more often than you do. The battle becomes so great sometimes, that you just want to give up.
Why fight when there really is nothing to fight for? It really feels like you’re fighting a losing battle. You see psychiatrists and psychologists and counsellors and Doctors, you try this pill and that pill, this treatment and that, and you stay on the little merry go round, going around and around.
No one really listens to you, because they already know, they have seen thousands like you and will likely see thousands more and you… You are just a number. The day I saw the shiny red truck, looking so pretty, was the day…
I don’t even know why, that I knew then, it was time to fight, one last battle, one last time, I didn’t want to end it without one last epic war and If I didn’t win this one, then that shiny red truck could take me away.
I went to the Dr, and told him I didn’t want any more of his pills, I wanted something more, something that would actually help me overcome this burden, to release the hold the trauma from my past had over me. I felt a burning in my soul, that life, that my life, that I was meant for more than this. Surely, we are not born just to die?
We have so much to offer, to give to each other, surely there is a better way? I wanted to find a better way, to live a better life. I fought so hard, the Drs told me I needed the drugs, I told them I needed my mind. PTSD is not an easy fight on your own, I had support from my family but it’s not the same when the battle is in your head and they can’t see the demons you fight.
The battle can be won; the demons can be laid to rest. There is not a battle that we face, that we cannot win, if we believe. We all have a fire in our soul, that burns deep within us. That guides us and gives us strength. That fire is often left untended, or smothered by an outside source and by the time we are adults, it’s nothing but embers. We can reignite the flames, we can feel the burn, it’s part of us, it’s who we are.
Life is better than that. We are all survivors of something, lets go be warriors together….
