    • Hey,
      There’s always room in my bunker. 🙂
      Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to comment.
      I will certainly check out your blog soon as well.
      Lots of love

  3. Hi Patty – nice to “meet” you. I have a relative dealing with Crohn’s so your words hit close to home. I also know the pain of losing family members…one just recently.

  4. Hi, I found your blog after reading about on the Blogger series run by Suz. I glanced at a few things , found them insightful and felt the emotions poured into them. I look forward to ‘getting to know you better’ through your blog 🙂

    • Thank you for your visit and follow John!
      Glad to meet you and I will certainly check out your blog as well.
      There is always room in the bunker, just make yourself at home! 🙂
      Lots of love,

      • Thank you for dropping in on me and following as well. I hope you enjoy all you find there, as I am sure I will at your site.


  7. What a story you have… and from the depths of your hell, you found yourself anew… glad to meet you, via shaun’s Facebook page… I used to live in amsteveen for 26 years… so feel very dutch… your english is good… (or are you english, american living in holland?) Maybe we can enjoy each others journey into the unknown… Barbara

    • Hey Barbara! 🙂
      Thank you for checking out my blog. I shall visit yours soon!
      And thank you, I am all Dutch but I have a brother in the USA. Amstelveen! That’s so cool. You can speak Dutch?
      Lots of love

  8. Wow! That’s a very powerful story and so brave of you to share. I’m happy you did and i’m sure many others are too. Love your blog Patty! 🙂

  9. Your beautiful heart and soul is blinding. I’m so glad you’ve taken this step into the ether and are giving us the opportunity to get to know you and support you. You are amazing, and if you need to close the door and hide in your bunker now and then, so be it. Many of us do that. We have to because sharing ourselves can be very depleting, even though worthwhile. Don’t think of it as hiding. Think of it as “recharging,” like recharging batteries. I’m the kind of person who will feel emotionally exhausted after a few hours with very close friends. As much as I have a good time and look forward to the next, inbetween I need my solitude. Stay safe and stay true to yourself. Love you.

  10. You must be a very special person, Patty. Thanks for sharing your story. What may have appeared as weaknesses to you have really given you strength of character. May you find many friends who won’t betray your trust in them.

  12. thanks for sharing pretty hard too do exspecially with people you think you know it sound’s so familiar in part you should probably come out and play more often

  13. Thanks for letting me camp out in your blog for a little while today. I had a great time and tried to leave my campsite as good as when I arrived. I’ll be back in a couple of weeks!

  14. Thank you for sharing! You had me in tears after reading “hey life?” It is our experiences in life that defines us, I am glad to read that it has led you such beautiful poems and writings. I am hesitate to truly express my feelings, my emotions in my own blog , as if I am afraid of being criticized or ridiculed, I refrain from showing too much pain, happiness, encouragement, frustrations….but your words have encouraged me to write all that I want to express!!

    • Thank you so much!
      I find it so difficult to let my feelings show, but i also think that real courage is doing the things that scare you the most, but you still want to do! I am glad that I can inspire you and just remember: always stay you, if people don’t like that, they are not worthy of being in your life! Lots of Hugz!

  15. Hi Patty,
    I’m really sorry you have had such a bad time in your life but the courage you have shown in fighting your way to where you are in your life now, is a wonderful inspiration to us all. You inspire!
    You are a dear sweet and sensitive person with a heart full of love and bravery, your words lift away other peoples clouds and let the sun shine through. When I visit your blog I always come away with a warm feeling, I’m a happier person for having visited, I always feel encouraged and hopeful and this is a such a wonderful thing for you to do!
    Even though you have had such a bad time you are still able to give all this love to others, you are one of the beautiful people, dear Patty, I’m so glad you are here with us and I want to say thank you for what you have given.
    It’s a pleasure to know you Patty, thank you for sharing your experiences.
    Lots of love and hugs, James 🙂

    • Aww, thank you so much for those very sweet words James! ♥
      They make me blush and feel so much stronger! Thanks for being you!
      Lot of hugz and love coming your way!

  16. Dear Patty,
    Thank you so much for sharing this with us. It feels good to understand you and feel who you are. Blogging is like a great therapy, one which almost, always works! It seems you found that out. It felt good to read the poems in between the lines and the amazing way in which you put forth your life story. Thank you so much for appreciating us, but you know what? Only good people get good friends. And you are a good person, right from the bottom of your heart. (By the way, don’t keep your heart chained, it can’t throb). 😀


  17. Thank you Patty.
    I am happy for you that you wrote this, you know why. Enjoyed the heck out of learning more about the girl behind the beautiful words that you let through. Yet feel so bad that you have been treated badly by others growing up and also your health problems you are dealing with. It seems you are a very strong person with inter strength that perhaps is greater than you give credit.

    Very nice way you have opened the door for us here, it is very nice of you to do this. It seemed like you were speaking from behind your wall and yet also from the outside looking in, hard to explain how.

    I wish you the best always of everything life has to offer one as talented as yourself.

  18. Oh Patty!!!! What a beautiful post!! So brave of you to share. And it makes me cry to think of what you had to go through. And it makes me angry that you were hurt by bullies. Thank you for sharing your heart with us. And you deserve all of the awards. Please keep sharing your poetry and your photos.

  19. I can certainly understand why this was difficult for you, but the hard stuff has passed. It was nice getting to know more about you, it just reinforced my belief that you are a truly amazing person that I am very lucky to know. I look forward to more posts revealing the inner you, which is a beautiful person. Friends for always.

  20. Hi Patty, I’m glad to have met you and to have read this (yes, all of it)! Some of the specifics of my story are different, but I definitely identify with the urgent need to hide and protect myself, to the point where I cut myself off from life. It’s a miserable, bleak place and I’m so happy you found relief from it, or even escape. Now if only every aspect of life would cooperate 🙂 Thank you for visiting and your wonderful, supportive comments — I’ll be back to read more!

    • Thank you so much for reading this post and you sweet words, Jason! 🙂
      And I am really glad I finally found the power to fight myself free and be me again. I will deffinitly read more of your blog as well, I absolutly love it!
      Lots of love,

  21. Thank you, and I mean this from the bottom of my heart, for sharing this poignant post with us. Being this vulnerable takes courage! And you my friend are my new “Courage Hero!” Parts of our stories are very similar! I too have found great comfort and encouragement from my WordPress family! Poetry has saved my life in many ways…I call it my “poemtherapy.” Somedays, it is the only thing standing between me and my addiction beast! Your poems are beautiful and I am grateful that you are sharing them with us! Keep writing…so I can keep reading!!! 🙂

    • Yes, poetry really is a life and mind saver! I agree completly! And all of you being so supportive means the world to me! Thank you so much for your sweet words and I will deffinitly keep writing! 🙂 ❤

      • The support I’ve gotten here on WP has been a blessing. It’s nice to be surrounded by family 🙂 ❤

  22. It took amazing courage to write this, but you are an amazing person so I expected no less. I leap into the air with my fist thrusting high and yell at the top of my lungs, “GO PATTI!!” And I welcome you into the circle of those who truly share of themselves rather than spouting surface thoughts.
    Love from me to you, Vickie

  25. Hey Patty,
    Hier kreeg ik tranen van in m’n ogen.. Ik wist het allemaal wel maar om het zo te lezen.. Ik vind je zo dapper! Ik ben blij dat je jezelf eens wat durft laten zien! Je bent het waard! Ik ken niemand die zo veelzijdig en creatief is als jij! Heel kort gezegd: Jij bent mijn beste tante nog steeds! Loveyou! ❤

  26. It takes a lot of courage to open up, especially like this. Thank you for thinking we’re worth hearing your story. I hope to watch you keep fighting and writing poetry for a long time.

  27. I admire your courage to open your heart and soul on your blog. I completely understand not sharing your life with others, I myself am a very private person and take a long time to warm up to people.

    • Thank you so much. Yes, normally it will take me forever to let someone close. But life is just too short, you know? Thank you so much for taking the effort to get to know me!

  28. dear, dear Patty…i cried when I read your words…i cried for the suffering in your life…for those who hurt your gentle heart…i selfishly cried for my suffering…and then i cried for the suffering of all people…those “bullies” who do not know what they are doing….and how we hurt others through our sufferings…My darling, YOU are so beautiful and so generous with your sharing heart! You are LOVE…it pours forth from your very being…the Center of YOU is LOVE…believe in yourself– your own inner beauty and goodness! We love your poetry because we “hear” where you are coming from…you take us into ourselves and out again…and i am so happy when YOU come out of your “bunker” and share who you are! For me, when i read your very fine words…your words of joy or of suffering…i take them into myself…to my Center…and send you LOVE CRYSTALS to heal you..free you…and LOVE YOU!
