Hello; my name is Lorraine Reguly.
I was raped when I was a fourteen-year-old virgin.
I turned to drugs, quit school four times, and became very promiscuous. At age 16, I had an abortion. I also got involved with prostitution. My son was born when I was 18.
I went back to school, and graduated via a program for single moms. I received scholarships and awards. I attended university for 5 years, and became a high school math and English teacher. I worked for 3.5 years, teaching in a small town.
I quit to move to my hometown, and returned to prostitution and drugs because the money was better. But it ruined my self-esteem. I was also then in an accident where I nearly lost my right leg. The resulting scar/deformity to my leg contributed to my depression. I was suicidal for years, too.
My son moved out when he turned 19. I didn’t speak to him for three years. The worst time of my life was during this period. I even ended up smoking crack for ten months during this time. Then I nearly died when my appendix burst.
This event changed my life forever. I realized I didn’t want to die without saying “good-bye” to my son.
I had already started to turn my life around about two years before this event occurred, and so when I finally re-connected with my son, my life always back on track.
Re-uniting with Julian changed my life in a very positive way. I decided to pursue a writing career.
I now own a business, Wording Well, and am an author. I live a clean life, and spend a lot of it helping others. My books are in my local library, and my business is thriving.
I’m living proof that a person can hit rock bottom and rise to the top despite all odds against him/her.
My son is proud of me again, too. 🙂
I Want to Help You
My mission is simple: I want to help others deal with their emotional pain and move on to live happier lives.
That is why I wrote From Nope to Hope: How I Overcame My Suicidal Thoughts (and How You Can Too).
I know what it’s like to be depressed and unhappy. I’ve been there more times than I can count. I still have some rough days, but my life now is much better. I’m happy. I’m positive. I feel good most of the time!
If you have any questions at all, about anything, please ask me.
I’m here to help you.
Even though we don’t know each other, I care about you.
And I don’t want to see you suffer any longer!
