Tamara Lexow here again. Some of you may know that I am a suicide survivor. When I was nineteen years old, my mom took her own life; leaving me, an only child, to deal with the grief. My dad had recently left us, and I felt very alone. For a long time, I didn't want [...]

I'm back! (Insert whatever evil, wicked, face you can see, hands together, fingers steepled, belching out a horrendous laugh...) ;) Wicked, evil, horrible. These are words I've heard were said in association with my name in the past year. Why? Because I chose to make decisions in my life, and set boundaries that the few [...]

I'm in the process of MOVING to the Dallas/Ft. Worth area! After cancer, Harvey, and the loss of my father, moving locations is a breeze. ;)  However, I don't want to lose sight of what is so important this month and that is bringing awareness to understanding what 'domestic violence' is and the effects it [...]
