This story, my story, was not an easy one to tell. It has not been an easy one to live.

By 21, I had already had my fair share of struggles. Clinical depression often hid behind my smile, but, deep down, I never lost hope. Not really. As I began to heal and find my place in the world, something unthinkable happened.

I awoke with a man, a stranger, in my bed. Then he stabbed me. Seven times. I lost 21 pints of blood. Statistically, I should not have survived.

Yet here I am. Telling my story. Candidly, honestly, courageously. Hoping that I may help others do the same.

To heal. To hope. And above all else, to love.

If you enjoy TRUE stories about regular people who survive extraordinary circumstances, this is a must-read!

Review of Choosing Survival

I’m a true crime buff but hate that the crimes happen to real people. Especially so in this case.

The book is well written with her emotions fueling the page turns. If the attack itself wasn’t bad enough, a psychiatrist asked if she stabbed herself. Seven times! What? A detective questioned if she was covering for her mom. Nurses treated her with less compassion than if they were swatting flies (due to her history of depression) and withheld meds in case she was just in this nightmare for medication. What? What? Your jaw is on the ground right? You haven’t even read about the attack or how she survived to thrive.
