Profile Information

My name is Donna Frisbie and I am 27 years old. I am a mother, sister, daughter, granddaughter etc. Just a normal girl trying to survive in this crazy place called life. I have a CNA license and chose home healthcare as my career path due to my overwhelming sense to help others. I was born in Houston, Texas to a drug addicted mother and father and after realizing they were not able to be care for us my grandmother took over custody of my 2 sisters and I. I know what you must be thinking, what a sweet woman, a real life angel, to take in 3 small children after hers are all raised and gone. Just the opposite, if I must say so myself. I spent a life revolved around constant abuse and pain. Physical, emotional, mental, verbal and even sexual. At a you gage of only 14 I just couldn't take it anymore. I waited until my grandmother was busy in another room and seized my opportunity jumping out of my bedroom window. Once My feet hit the grass my legs took off and the next thing I remember is the stinging on my legs and arms as the prickers and broken branches, in the woods I was running through, penetrated through my bare skin. I ran to the nearest friends house where her parents did some digging for me and got into contact with my biological father and his family living in NY. After a little explaining my paternal grandmother had me on a flight to NY by the very next morning. After arriving to NY the struggle didn't end as I had hoped, my father still was badly addicted to drugs and had always lived the life of a criminal. In and out of jail, changing his ways to only go back. Not even a week after my arrival my father was placed in jail and it was foster care and group homes for me. My eighteenth birthday I signed myself out of the county's custody and decided to live life on my own. I struggled, I fought, I failed many times. I refused to give up though, refused to let life get the best of me, I made a family, lost a family, had to change myself and my life on multiple different occasions but each time I conquered through one of these rough situations I came out a little bit stronger and a little bit wiser. I regret nothing in my past as it has only made me who I am today. My treacherous journey in life has not ended yet though. In fact it is far from over. A little over a year ago I started having some extensive testing done due to constant and recurring illness. After tons of tests and a couple surgeries I was finally diagnosed with a rare type of non Hodgkin's lymphoma called primary large B cell mediastinal lymphoma. My path quickly became quite twisted once again, this time worse than ever before, full of storms, wild animals and treacherous conditions. I fell into a deep dark hole and couldn't find enough light to climb my way out. That's when a few real life, heaven on earth hero angels stumbled upon my path and shined light into demise helping me find my way out. I refuse to give up. After all I have conquered in life I refuse to let something like cancer decide when my time is up. I am a firm believer that the lower you fall the higher you will fly which is why I classify myself only as a current fighter forever survivor. Writing is a major stress relief for me and gives me a sense of relief as I pour my heart, mind and soul into my writings. I'm convinced that my constant pain and struggle was only so that I could teach others about my experience in hopes of putting them on a brighter paths to a successful future. I hope you enjoy
