Hi. This is Scatterbrained letting everyone know who has replied to me that I don't have a computer of my own and can only get on someone else's computer a couple of times a week - also do not have a vehicle at present. So please be patient. My sister will send a response for me if I call her and tell her what I want to say, but can't do that everyday. I will most definitely get back to all of you in due time because hearing from you means the world to me. Thanks and God bless!

My family returned to the U.S. literally the day after my high school graduation ceremony. I remember trying to say a proper goodbye to the school and Colombia before we left, but I didn't know how...that summer I went into deep depression, suffered some serious insomnia and contemplated suicide. The Reentry program at Camdenton was helpful in a way (I learned how to open a bank account and make a telephone call), but even when they identified me as struggling emotionally and at risk, nothing much was done that I remember and it only made me feel vulnerable and ashamed that I was struggling.

I enrolled at NTM Bible School for the fall, where at least life was somewhat familiar. I kind of wanted to go to college, but was too afraid to strike out on my own. I was not prepared for finding a job and hated the one I had, but didn't have the skills or credentials to get another. I was completely unprepared for life back 'home' and it was very difficult to fit in to any church or social circles. In some ways I was mature beyond my years and in others very much like a little child. Not a good time in my life and hard to think about now...



I threw myself at Fate when I turned 19. Did not only leave home. I left my home country downunder, I left what little 'security' I had and moved to Sweden. I am a survivor. And I will heal, sooner or later...
