Single Mom, What a Life (SMWAL) by Shakirah Iman - 4M ago

Women are the largest group of victims of sexual abuse but it is a problem with men as well. This is a topic that is very personal as I have been sexually abused in a relationship and as a child. In both cases, it has horrific effects on the victim, and in both cases the victim […]

As someone who practices meditation and mindfulness, the thought is always there on how I can add this to Noah’s life. I made it 48 days straight meditating before missing a day, and after hitting 30+ days, I started tossing in some everyday mindfulness. I even have the children in my class practicing a short […]

General Anxiety When I was first put on medication for my anxiety, something weird happened. The world got brighter, and I can remember on many occasions asking my sister and K if the clouds had always looked like that. I mean they looked unreal like cotton candy just in the sky, it was beautiful. My […]

My goals for 2017 were realistic and mostly centered around me. In past years I had goals as a parent, blogger, and for myself. However, last year I called myself “focusing on me”, you will read below how well that went. So in this post, I will be giving all three areas for my goals […]

The last year has been trying, and I was thinking I was starting to get the hang of all the ups and downs, but that is not the case. When I started my master’s degree, I had this plan in my head on how I would balance everything, but then I was diagnosed with anxiety, […]

Effects of Abuse It broke my heart to write about and think about the people living with domestic violence, but it cannot and will not change if we do not talk about.  The effects of domestic violence are felt while it is happening and long after it is over, and in the worst cases, domestic […]

Single Mom, What a Life (SMWAL) by Shakirah Iman - 4M ago

Elder abuse is the most under-reported form of abuse (including intimate partner violence and child abuse). Most of the research on the elder abuse has been on economic abuse (look for definition here). That is many elders are abused for their income.
