Ill say quickly, i totally hate introducing myself whether it is online or face to face, it has and does give me the heebie jeebies.
So with saying that,
My names Donna, i chose the name Donnie because thats my nickname, you can call me Donna or Donnie whichever you would like. Im 27 years old, from NY, i was raped December 9th 1998 as well as on November 21st 2001. I have had a few unsure of incidents before and during those times, but my memory is pretty cloudy when it comes to them, but the two above are glued to my memory.
So yeah im a survivor, but hey im also an Aunt to 5 of the most gorgeous and awesome babies ranging from the ages of 6mths old to 6 yrs old. They are my pride and joy, so definetly brace yourself on how much you will hear me talk about them. What i have always kept with me and what has always kept me going are their total and complete innocence to everything that they see and touch. To see them in action makes life even more worth living than it already is.
I have 4 older siblings, yes i am the youngest.
I work in retail at a customer service desk, it has its moments as i always try to say. But its a very hard and stressful job, they always say "dont take your work home with you," as much as i try it never fails.
I dont know what else to say? (See Lindy i DID it! )
So i guess ill just end my intro post right here. You all seem very lovely, im in hopes to be able to get to know you all.
Please be safe and take care,
(((((((Many Hugs To You All))))))))))
