I am a registered nurse who works with dementia patients. In a past life I mis-used illicit drugs. Honestly, I was a junkie and I quite literally bear the scars in the form of two dark lines on my forearms. I need to cover my two scars with something beautiful so I can stop sweating in long sleeves every single day of my life. It is really awful having to live with the vestiges of my dark past, I am so tired of living in fear and shame. I love dogs, the great outdoors, preparing delicious food, and helping those in need the way I was helped.
