I'm not a poet nor a writer, but just a person with something to say. I am a wife, a mother of four girls (one of whom died at a very early age), and these are excerpts from my life. I blog on obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), depression, and other things that torment. It's not that I don't have moments of happiness, but that's just not when I am compelled to write. For me writing is, for the most part, a way of expressing the things inside that I otherwise could not.
