The Last Quarter Mile

Published February 21, 2017 by Nan Mykel

I’ve sure had my share of experiences in my life, and pets.  No “visions,” or other spiritual dramas. Almost three years ago I began this blog because someone told me that was the way to get folks to know about and buy my books. Far as I know not one has been sold that way.  I’m really not an example of how an incest survivor can morph into a successful, healthy, peppy, loving and undepressed woman, wife and mother.  I’m still afraid of men, at the gut level. Not all my children are satisfied with me. I have been plagued with impulsivity.  I loathe to read posts expressing discontent with oneself and life.  Well, why am I writing this?  I’m bored and a teeny bit depressed, I guess.  I won’t stay away from sweets, and am extremely touchy when discounted.  There are things about me I wouldn’t even tell you, and that’s saying a lot.  A positive item is that years ago I made the decision never to kill myself (and that includes anyone else), but I did euthanize an old cat and dog, to my subsequent regret.  I am excited to read that fish and trees are smarter than we know.  I guess that will make me feel guilty about the few fish I have caught, but I have always loved and cherished trees.  If there’s anything in this post that you feel like laughing at, go ahead. I’m happy for you.

  • Nan! I’m very aware this is a public space and need to be careful what I say. BUT! Hang in there! I’ve just spoken about you on Bethany Kay’s blog and we both call you by your first name although we’ve never met, and agree wholeheartedly that what you brought to us is invaluable! But it’s okay to be depressed too sometimes. I’ll email. I made comments all over Fallout and will write a review soon. We’ll post it on Goodreads, Linkedin, WordPress and Facebook. It may or may not sell copies anyway I know. Your contribution to the conversation is busy saving my sanity and I’m not being dramatic. There’s nothing, absolutely nothing to laugh it. Nothing. Hang in there.

    • Thanks for asking. The main one is FALLOUT: A Survivor Talks to Incest Offenders. (Discussed on my Books page).
      Available at Amazon. I’m unhappy with the novelette Broken Boundaries, and Time Wrinkles is just mish mosh. Fallout is the only one I hope will be read.

      • I just got it….My mom did therapy for sex offenders that were mentally ill in a mental institution for violent criminals. She was never abused. I wondered right away how you could hear their stories after being abused yourself
