I Have Had My Life Perspective Altered Because of Debijean

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 6 People

    Inspired

    Nobody that I have come across on EP has ever written so movingly or postively about extreme adversity as she has. She shames and inspires me, in equal measure. I shall never forget her or the wisdom she has shared.

    That Smile

    I wake up around 4:00 AM every morning.  I don't get up; I lie in bed and let the thoughts come in undirtied by the petty grievances that often come into my day.  My thoughts often go to Debijean.  I wonder how she's feeling, if she had a good day, and if her...
