Hello! I want to welcome you to my page Trauma Mama. I use the name "trauma mama" because I am a regular person, just like you, trying to be the best mom, sister, wife, friend she can while having also experienced potentially debilitating pain and trauma in my life. Although I always knew something was majorly "off" in my growing up years, I did not acutely connect with all that had occurred until I myself became a "Mama". So I affectionately coined the myself "Trauma Mama" years ago.
I am the happy wife of one good, imperfect man who has learned, grown, (moaned!) and banged his head against a wall along side me for 19 years (as by very virtue of being attached to me, my story of trauma became his). Together we have four beautiful humans whom we attempt to raise 😏😆. They teach me every day that beautiful things can indeed come from hard places. I will slowly unpack my story here as we share little truths and small ponderings on pain, trauma, joy and healing. Welcome aboard, friend!
