About Me

Hi, I am Monia. I am many things but beneath the surface I am a writer, woman with 2 chronic physical illnesses, PTSD and a person who suffers from severe depression. These essays, poems and entries are my way of sharing my stories with those who are interested. Stories that I am finally ready to tell. They are how I cope with my life experiences.
