What’s to come…

A blank document with a flashing curser. That’s what I have looked at for the past hour trying to write this mini-blog.
This blog is a head’s up of sorts. It’s a preview of what’s to come in the life of Amanda Colclasure. At least, as far as I can see.

And what I see might surprise you.

I believe the next leg of my journey will get harder, before it gets better.

I have spent the last two years running from the pain and the effects inflicted upon me…October 31, 2009, when I was raped. I have been just as unwilling to deal with being raped, as I was the night it happened.

Today I made the decision to stop running and am putting recovery into action.

I have a long road of recovery ahead of me.

This will mean that some days I will be less social than what you are used to…maybe even less positive. And that scares me. I like being known for those things. But if I truly want to be healthy, I have to acknowledge all of the pain and anger I have bottled away and work through it.

I would appreciate your prayers and support as I walk this journey.

  1. The first step is recognizing that it is a journey to recovering from such a horrific experience. The second is facing it with friends, loved ones, and God as your support. This was a courageous moment for you to tell the world…I’m behind you all the way, girlfriend. You are strong and you are beautiful. You can do anything!

  2. Amanda God and all your friends including me are with you and are willing to go through this with you. I will be praying and call me if you need someone to talk to.
