The Defining Moments in My Life Today:

There's More to this life than you would think! Born in San Jose and raised mostly in California finally making it to Medford Oregon in 92. Finding myself is still taking time but each step is closer to knowing and loving me. I always loved animals and turned vegetarian in 92. I felt strongly for the oppressed. Having my 3 kids along the way also still finding out where I belong. Finding this sight in 06 but just starting to network sign petitions and find friends quickly became a passion. It abruptly halted in 09 with a major car accident due to drunk driving. 

               Helicoptered in to RVMC In a coma for 3 days, having seizures and on life support my name given to me was Trauma La Jean. The severity of the accident by statistics I'm the lucky 7% that make it and are able to function out in the world. I made it! It took sometime to recover, 3 Months to walk without help from a walker and for my constant vertigo, a week to learning how to write. Reading took about a month ,my eyes shifted from left to right. Sadly people with brain injuries in a vegitative state experience that. To understand what I was reading and remember sometimes took repeated reading it out loud. Jokes and sarcasm were not understood until 10 months as well as understanding social behaviors . it was like being a child all over .Although I forgive my brother for the accident as he did his time in prison, i started to really get how bad addiction is on people and the lives they ruin. I was awarded a settlement and really wanted to have a good life as I still struggled with memory loss and some lasting effects.

                I wasn't done learning from addiction. My husband back then let the money go to his head and became emotionally abusive. He became an addict to the drugs in the streets and was so abusive on every level . I learned the hard way that not all marriages can be saved. I tried desperately thinking it's me, but in his brainwashing and me believing him, I needed help I was letting myself go, losing 30 lbs , losing my hair from the stress in the process of The emotional abuse, and ending up in the hospital a number of times, I divorced realizing this man took everything from me and my boys. I tried to strengthen myself mentally and physically by working out vigorously, doing cardio, and yoga. It worked great as I felt and looked my best! I sold my house I couldn't afford. I sold almost all the things I couldn't take with me to make ends meet. Still I made time every day to workout as it became my passion . I ended up homeless for 2 months later down the road, i still held down my only thing that supported me.....my job! I'm now still dealing with the exes debt and tax fraud he left me in giving him a spot in prison and I still suffer with the bills from taxes 

             I'm now in college and have been since the summer of 2014. I have a 3.8 GPA. I'm certified in CPR! I'm doing everything on my own and started Spanish winter term. I'm majoring in Business Technology and Minoring in Spanish. I have my boys that are growing so fast and an amazing boyfriend who i met in 2015. He is the love of my life. Its amazing What people can endure . Knowing what I have been through anyone can have that fight. I'm happy where I am despite everything. I'm a fighter and have escaped death twice. I have paved a good life for me and my family.
        I'm active in classes at RCC and work full time. So many things have happened so many learning lessons. To anyone who knew me I'm Stronger than ever! Ready for a degree,ready to live life to the fullest,and ready to attain it all.
