  • Compliments

    Nursing students tend to complain about how nursing school is academically hard and stressful. One thing they may leave out is how degrading many nursing instructors can be on one’s performance in clinical – or just in general. My clinical instructor broke the mentally degrading stigma nursing instructors tend to have during my med-surg III…read more

    • It’s so amazing the power that comes from someone believing in us. I am sure she is so proud of the work you are doing and I am sure she is super happy that her words do and will continue to help protect you from people who are mean, jealous or simply out to hurt you. Keep shining and keep helping people <3 Lauren

    • Salutations,
      The power words can hold is astonishing, especially in negative situations. I’m glad that it was a positive outcome for you, and you remembered it in a crucial time that was needed.
      Thank you for sharing and I look forward to seeing more stories from you.

    Hi,

    This topic you wrote was super interesting read for me. I currently work as a registered nurse and recall briefly learning about Reiki as an example of “CAM” (complementary and alternative medicine). I strongly believe in the use of both CAM and Western medications in aiding the health of a patient. People underestimate certain things way too…read more

    Hi,
    thanks for your kind words again. I suppose my writing doesn’t go in much depth about the event, but that is irrelevant. The issue with the justice system isn’t the charges changed from criminal sexual assault to criminal sexual abuse/force because of a plea deal that he got to choose. Nor the fact that he was released early from a county…read more

    • Since I was a freshman at Michigan State University, we started the first women’s support groups. You would think by now things would be better. At grad school, Cornell was still not safe. A housemate was raped at home, a classmate was raped in the field. Women had to fight for equal opportunity. A professor on my committee tried to rape me. Then,…read more

    Hi,
    Sorry I just saw this – I don’t really know what I like to write. Sometimes I just write whatever and usually I do not share it to any platform or really anyone. I’ve been in school and work full time so I haven’t had a chance to really write things. This was an old poem I found. Sometimes I enjoy poetry but most times I just write random…read more

  • Please Don’t Worry

    Dear Em,

    It has been ten years since you turned thirteen. I am going to be relatively blunt with you, as I am well aware that you can be quite stubborn at times. You will not be going away to the college you dreamed of or moving out when you turn eighteen. As a matter of fact, you will still be living at home in your early twenties. I am not sure…read more

    • Wow Emily! You have persevered through so much. As a result, you have been able to find your greatness, and, through your career, help a lot of people. You should be so proud of all you accomplished.

    Hi,
    Thank you for your kind words. It took a while to not feel anonymous but you are right with what you have written. It’s just a lonely, long, awkward process that shouldn’t have to happen to anyone. I hope other people tell their stories as you mentioned because it can bring closure. Even though this was 5-6 years ago and I wrote this a couple…read more

    Hi,
    Thanks for taking the time to read this. It’s an older attempt at a poem I wrote a long time ago. I’m sorry you had to go through this, it’s really terrible. I’m proud of you for telling your parents. It’s one of the worst topics to tell your parents because it involves not only a violent topic but it’s sexual as well. Because of this, telling…read more

    Hi, thank you for taking the time to read this. It’s an old poem “thing” I wrote a while ago and never shared it to anyone. It’s hard to not know things. I know I was drugged from a personal standpoint but when I went to the hospital I remember being angry not knowing what was in my system because they never did a drug test. I stumbled across this…read more

    • Colors say so much without elaboration. You have used them well to paint emotions with words. Brava! What are your favorite things to write? Poetry, prose, memoir, historical fiction? How have you come by your writing gift? Is it your primary gig or do you also toil in other endeavors? What is your goal or desire to make of your work?

    No one knows me, they only see you.
    Your personality makes me feel so

    gray-ish,
    green-ish,
    blue.

    When I wake up and before I go to bed,
    I pause and think of you.

    I wish you would stop wasting my time,
    Because lately I feel that I am losing my mind.

    A clock in my head constantly chimes,
    With ticks and tocks that play on repeat.

    Orange…read more

    • Emily, This is so powerful. I am not sure if you saw, but I started the site after sharing my own story of being sexually assaulted. I never press charges or prosecuted. I actually never even found out who the two people were that hurt me. What incredible courage it takes to do what you did. Your strength is admirable. I am sorry at moments in the…read more
