About Crystal

I am Crystal P. 37 years old single mother of three beautiful teenagers. Native of Savannah, Ga. national author, culinary arts and nursing background . In school now continuing my education. I learned over time to love and believe in yourself. If you have a dream best thing to do is run for the stars. I’m a firm believer in the law of attraction this helped me on my journey.  I change my way of thinking and how I saw the world. I took control of my life once I discovered this secret. My Twitter is @Impossi52710261 or you may e-mail me at: Impossibledreams8@yahoo.com.

My Story

My Father came home from Vietnam with a silent mental illnesses (PSTD). He violently attacked my mother in front of me and my older brother. I was seven when I witnessed him almost kill my mother. After that, we were being stalked. My mother had warrants on him, but still felt like her life was threatened. Because he would not obey the orders from the court. A year  passed she started to feel like she had control of her life. My Father stopped coming around all of sudden. Me and mother both woke up late, got dressed made are way to the parking lot. My Father had Vandalized the car. By busting the tires and placing tar on all the door knobs. My mother reached out to her aunt. Who stayed near her job. Asked if she could watch me while she worked. My aunt  spent most of her time in her room entertaining her company. Meanwhile, I was in the next room getting raped by her son- I was eight. When my cousin heard his mother come out the room. He stopped. I broke free.

I ran to tell my aunt what was happening  in the room. My cousin running behind me calling me a liar. My aunt did nothing and never said anything to my mother. When she picked me up from her house that night.

I became rebellious. I was put on all kinds of medication to keep me stabilize. My mother would call the same aunt to chastise me. My mother had no idea I was molested. How hard it was for me to express myself at such a young age. I was all alone in the world I had nobody.

During my teenage years these were my darkest times. I was promiscuous and misunderstood. My mother started back dating again. several years after my father stopped harassing us. The guy who she was with physically abused me secretly. She never knew what was going on. because I was to scared to speak. I abused the medication that I was being given. I wanted to die I felt like I had no purpose to live.

In adulthood I was withdrawn, depressed and over protective of my children. My life was one dark hole and I was stuck in it. I woke up one day feeling overwhelmed. It felt like someone was beating me. Not knowing I was about to be delivered by my own child. I went to get myself together before my children came home. I did not want them seeing me stressed out. Opened the door to my son’s room and my notebook was on his bed. I heard him coming in the house. I hurried back to my room and set down. My body weigh heavy my legs mounted to the floor. He comes and gives me my notebook. Tells me how good he thought it was. I asked him what did he get from reading it he said “Its  about a girl who had a secret and she never told anyone”. Feeling humiliated. I took a deep breath and said “I was that little girl in the story”. He looks at me and said “That makes a lot of sense. I think you should finish it and help other people like you” He was only 13 at the time. It took me five years to write Jilted Silence is Deadly. A week later my book was published and my son graduated high school at 17.

My Healing Journey

I finished writing my autobiography, Jilted Silence is Deadly, May 5, 2016. I started Writing this book in 1991. Dealing with sexual and physical abuses. Because I  suffered from dyslexia, my mother was told when I was eight that I would not be able to read or write. Growing up, most of my life was spent at the library where my mother worked. I could not understand written language, felt like the words from the books reached out and spoke to my spirit. I loved when the volunteers came to read at the library. That is how I developed my inspirational and creative ideas. I wrote about my life and what I had experienced. It was a release.

When my book was published I shocked a lot of people. I’m the life of the party, very genuine and easy- going. Family and close friends found out on my book release day. No one knew about my battles spiritually and mentally. I kept my silence hidden from everyone. Some of them came out about their own personal trauma. After Reading my book they also realized it was not their fault as well. Speaking out gave me power I never knew I had. I do not blame myself for what happened to me any more. I have a calling on my life to help others .  For that I’m truly grateful. Glad to be a ROCKSTAR.

“Wake up every morning and look for greatness in these dark hours.”

To My Younger Self

Wake up Every morning and look for greatness In these dark hours. Its victims who will never speak and tell their stories. We are willing and able to Scream loud about our Abuse. Keep telling even, If your voice shakes a little. We owe that to ourselves to be free. I wish someone told me about sexual abuses earlier in my childhood. I feel like I could have saved myself. To parents save your children teach them awareness. My sisters and brothers coming out on domestic and Sexual abuses. Strive to be better then you were yesterday. To the people holding on to their silence and want speak. We are waiting for you to knock down the doors Screaming loud . Peace
