Demi Lovato “Let It Go” lyrics
[Chorus]
Let it go
Let it go
Can’t hold you back anymore
Let it go
Let it go
Turn my back and slam the door

[Verse 1]
The snow blows white on the mountain tonight
Not a footprint to be seen
A kingdom of isolation and it looks like I’m the Queen
The wind is howling like the swirling storm inside
Couldn’t keep it in, heaven knows I tried

Don’t let them in, don’t let them see
Be the good girl
You always had to be
Conceal, don’t feel
Don’t let them know
Well, now they know

[Chorus]
Let it go
Let it go
Can’t hold you back anymore
Let it go
Let it go
Turn my back and slam the door
And here I stand, and here I’ll stay
Let it go
Let it go
The cold never bothered me anyway

[Verse 2]
It’s funny how some distance
Makes everything seem small
And the fears that once controlled me
Can’t get to me at all
Up here in the cold thin air
I finally can breathe
I know left a life behind but I’m too relieved to grieve

[Chorus]
Let it go
Let it go
Can’t hold you back anymore
Let it go
Let it go
Turn my back and slam the door
And here I stand
And here I’ll stay
Let it go
Let it go
The cold never bothered me anyway

[Bridge]
Standing frozen in the life I’ve chosen
You won’t find me, the past is so behind me
Buried in the snow

[Chorus]
Let it go
Let it go
Can’t hold you back anymore
Let it go
Let it go
Turn my back and slam the door
And here I stand
And here I’ll stay
Let it go
Let it go
The cold never bothered me anyway

Respect Institute 2012 graduate per Mr. Joel Slack

Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental DisabilitiesRESPECT Institute Joel Slack, who facilitates the RESPECT Institute in Georgia, originally developed the program at the request of Fulton State Hospital in Missouri. Leadership at the hospital realized that clients often had a solid understanding of what worked best in their rehabilitation. It was thought that this insight could be used to help aide in recovery, but most of them had never been asked to share their stories in their own words.  The first RESPECT Institute began at Fulton State approximately 15 years ago. Groups of 12 met for a 3½ day training in which each participant learned to present his or her story before an audience. After about 7 years of successful implementation at the hospital, Slack obtained grant funding to expand the RESPECT Institute statewide in Missouri. DBHDD brought the RESPECT Institute to Georgia two years ago. Training sessions are held 24 times a year across the state.Day 1Participants give an informal introduction using an outline provided by the RESPECT Institute. Each member of the group is able to offer feedback to the other presenters. For homework, individuals write down their stories.   Day 2Each participant shares his or her recovery story at a podium. These stories are empowering and healing for the presenter and sometimes also very emotional. Following each presentation, the individual offers three pieces of advice learned through recovery. The group helps members develop a message and embed educational components into their stories. At the end of the day, participants are assigned to refine their stories based on the class’ feedback.Day 3Participants present their final stories and select three to four individuals to speak at their graduation ceremony.Day 4A graduation ceremony is held for all the individuals who complete the program. Graduates finish the RESPECT Institute empowered to tell their stories in any venue.Upon completing the program, graduates become guest speakers at universities, corporate trainings, civic meetings and more. Outreach coordinator Alfred Brooks helps graduates find venues to share their stories. The RESPECT Institute has been in Georgia for less than two years, but graduates have shared their stories with nearly 20,000 people. Brooks also facilitates an ongoing monthly support group for each class.“The RESPECT Institute offers life-changing, transformational experiences for people as they learn how to tell their stories. We’ve watched people heal in those three days,” said Slack. “Our graduates are also transforming their audiences by helping people to see the humanity beyond the illness. Once you’re able to see that humanity, it’s easier to treat someone with respect.”The RESPECT Institute is provided by DBHDD in partnership with the Georgia Mental Health Consumer Networkand Mental Health America of Georgia. There is no cost to participants. To learn more about the RESPECT Institute, contact Mark Baker, director of DBHDD’s Office of Recovery Transformation, atbakermj@dbhdd.ga.gov.

There have been 997 Georgia Certified Peer Specialists Since October 2001.

My next essay application for CPS Certified Peer Specialist will be in later this year, I believe the training will be hosted in Atlanta in December if I am not mistaken. I will begin to work on this again very soon.

I found out that the motto of The GA Peer Institute is “Each One Reach One” and with the facts of becoming a Certified Peer Specialist being :> Candidates must have diagnosis of mental illness or a dual diagnosis of mental illness and addictive disease and must desire to identify themselves as a person with mental illness current or former consumer of mental health services.> Applicants must hold a high school diploma or GED and may be requested to provide a copy of this document.> Must demonstrate strong reading comprehension and written communication skills as indicated on their responses on the pre – test which is part of the application.> Must have demonstrated experience with leadership, advocacy or governance.> Must be well grounded in recoveryThese facts are taken directly from the Certified Peer Specialist brochure.There have been 997 Georgia Certified Peer Specialists Since October 2001.

View Point Health held a very lovely picnic today in Olde Town Conyers for its clients. We had hamburgers, hot dogs, salad, cake and cold bottled water. We played a couple of games and discussed our feelings of being View Point Health clients. We discussed a mandatory meeting coming up in August that we must all attend. The cook out was fabulous and enjoyed by all. We had a great time and very much enjoyed each other’s company and excellent conversations on the lawn. Thank you View Point Health for the awesome cook out today and all that you do.

So “Did she love tree houses?”

What actually began as advocacy in 1994 for me for juveniles has continued until present date 2014.

I legally adopted my three step- daughter’s in 1999 and have had my hands in the O.C.G.A. since 1994 advocating for children.

Due to authenticated, documented remiss, neglect and abuse from their natural mother I was able to adopt my children in 1999.

These are things included in an independent adoption in the State of Georgia:

I have the full report but have chosen not to share the entire report.

Independent Adoption Report – State of Georgia

I. Verification of allegations contained in the petition

II. Circumstances under which the minor children came to be placed for adoption

III. Whether the proposed adoptive parent is financially, phsically and mentally able to have the permanent custody of the minor child

IV. The physical and mental condition of the minor children to be adopted

V. Whether or not the adoption is in the best interest of the minor children

VI. Suitability of the home to the minor children

VII. Other information – References

Four references were obtained on myself, Leslie Syles, school counselor, Julie Manders, school counselor, Mark Zielenske, family friend, Charles and Dot Sasser. All of the references support the adoption of the minor children by the petitioner, April Christina Fuller Sasser

So my advocacy for juveniles did not just begin with my own biological daughter it began 20 years ago with all four of my daughter’s.

With never having one single hint, suggestion, implication nor accusation as to any wrongdoing as a mother nor as a wife it has been very hard for me being parentally alienated due to being hospitalized for authenticated documented marital abuse and depression. That is what began the parental alienation. My being hospitalized at Peachford. And NO I have NEVER had addictive diseases issues or rather alcohol and drugs. It has never been an issue in my life and I have always tested negative while a patient.

Sasser/Sasser

The Court reserves ruling on the issue of contempt but recognizes the need to assure compliance with the Order of this Court that the Plaintiff’s relationship with her child as a parent be fully established. January 5th 2012

The minor child shall be informed of this arrangement to enable her to communicate with the Plaintiff if she so chooses.

The Court enters this order to protect the child’s best interests and to hopefully enable the plaintiff and the child to have contact in the future. The Court encourages the parties to attend some form of family therapy. However, the Court is not ordering that the parties do so based upon the age of the minor child, the current relationship of the parties, and the history of this case.

October 31 2013

Due to being in the hospital in August of 2004 I have suffered severe parental alienation and estrangement. Over night they were gone never to be seen or heard from again due to authenticated documented marital abuse and depression. With authenticated documented letter of clearance that I was in good health and not a harm or threat to myself or others in 2004 to current date.

When I visited my friend Bruce’s house he had beautiful garden’s, a swimming pool, lizards, a chick, and a tree house. I toured the family’s yard and got some nice photos and swam all afternoon.

What I want to know is “Did she ever play in tree houses?” We had  a 5 acre yard and I got to watch my 4 older children grow up to be young, healthy, thriving teenagers. But this parental alienation began when my youngest daughter was only 4. So, “Did she ever play in tree houses?” How many times has she been sick or ill? How often does she think of me? Has she ever been to a dance, now being nearly 15 I am certain she has. And I am certain she was just gorgeous. From pictures I see she looks just like me when I was growing up. I often wonder of these matters but visiting Bruce’s tree house that day has brought it to the forefront of my mind every single second since. I cannot seem to shake the feelings. Being in the tree house at Bruce’s made me really think long and hard over everything that I have missed in their lives and for no reason other than being in the hospital for authenticated documented marital abuse and depression. No remiss, neglect nor abuse to ever be mentioned of. Not ever. Not as a mother nor as a wife. Not ever to this present date.

When she was young we had a tire swing and a trampoline that she enjoyed. But after age 4, I have no idea.

So “Did she love tree houses?”

Working on dealing with emotional pain.

It is about 8:45 and I had just finished blogging of the O.C.G.A. being my Voice of Vocation. I lay down and as I lay thinking. My thoughts are so torn and shattered. How do you let go of something when you are so grief stricken that at times you can hardly feel or think straight? How do you recover from such damning abuse of the system? Even though this state of GA has rectified their mistakes I will most likely never heal. Never to be the same independent strong woman that I once was. I grow everyday and try becoming more and more like the me I used to be but I stay so grief stricken and hard hearted that it often times makes it impossible not to cry and not to ache due to parental alienation for years now. Go to bed with everything wonderful and blissful with you and your young children to awaken the next day to them being gone forevermore. This has happened to 4 of my 5 children and has left me heartbroken and full of sadness and contempt.

What once was very open, loving fulfilling relationships went to nothing in one short day. One day of my being hospitalized for family violence, marital abuse and depression at Peachford. Never losing any  rights to my children but being separated and alienated from visiting or being with them. What was nearly a 15 year relationship was gone forever even to present date.

With no hint, suggestion, implication nor accusation of wrongdoing on my behalf as a mother nor as a wife. Not ever to be mentioned.

Working on dealing with emotional pain. Where does emotional pain come from? What does emotional pain feel like? What kind of situations, events or relationships in my life can lead to emotional pain? How have I dealt with emotional pain in the past? What actions in my day to day life show me I might be dealing with emotional pain? Are these actions working for me? What can I do differently to deal with my emotional pain? Is there any guidance in God’s word about dealing with emotional pain, and where can I find it?

As I lay thinking, I try to come to some sort of reasoning or answers to help me completely recover, heal and move on. But the O.C.G.A. is my Voice of Vocation and has been a part of my life for 20 years now with 5 children involved.

Going to be aching tonight for my daughter’s touch. Her understanding and her love. Their heart’s what they once were.

April Sasser v Charles Sasser

To be a GA and Newton County native makes and serves me proud to leave behind this lasting legacy for myself, my children and my grandchildren and for all children of this great State of GA.

Having attended school since Kindergarten in Newton County serves me proud too.

And furthermore, New Rock of View Point Health graduate. A Respect Institute through the State of GA graduate and a graduate of GPSI GA Peer Support Institute through The GA Mental Health Consumer Network while working on my CPS Certified Peer Specialist Certification for the State of GA.

I cannot stress enough how so many important facts could have saved a family’s once loving life.

I found out that the motto of The GA Peer Institute is “Each One Reach One” and with the facts of becoming a Certified Peer Specialist being :> Candidates must have diagnosis of mental illness or a dual diagnosis of mental illness and addictive disease and must desire to identify themselves as a person with mental illness current or former consumer of mental health services.> Applicants must hold a high school diploma or GED and may be requested to provide a copy of this document.> Must demonstrate strong reading comprehension and written communication skills as indicated on their responses on the pre – test which is part of the application.> Must have demonstrated experience with leadership, advocacy or governance.> Must be well grounded in recoveryThese facts are taken directly from the Certified Peer Specialist brochure.There have been 997 Georgia Certified Peer Specialists Since October 2001.

*****Not once in 20 plus years has there ever been one single hint, suggestion, implication nor accusation as to any wrongdoing on my behalf as a mother nor as a wife. Not in 20 plus years of being a mother. My advocacy did not just begin with my own daughter it began in 1994 with my three legally adopted step- daughters where it is of documented authenticated record of their natural mother’s remiss, neglect and abuse time and time again. Therefore the adoption took place.-

I. Verification of allegations contained in the petition

II. Circumstances under which the minor children came to be placed for adoption

III. Whether the proposed adoptive parent is financially, phsically and mentally able to have the permanent custody of the minor child

VII. Other information – References

Four references were obtained on myself, Leslie Syles, school counselor, Julie Manders, school counselor, Mark Zielenske, family friend, Charles and Dot Sasser. All of the references support the adoption of the minor children by the petitioner, April Christina Fuller Sasser

I have lived and survived to tell this horrific tale of parental alienation that still continues forth and forward today due to Mr. Sasser’s hatred and out of his act of hate. Even given *****Not once in 20 plus years has there ever been one single hint, suggestion, implication nor accusation as to any wrongdoing on my behalf as a mother nor as a wife. Not in 20 plus years of being a mother.

Currently reading Let Your Life Speak by Parker J. Palmer Listening for the Voice of Vocation given to me by a dear friend Deanna Dennis of Turner Broadcasting. This is my Vocation. This is the Voice of my Vocation. Telling this story and leaving behind this legacy for my children and for my daughter’s and own birth daughter to know and understand that I did not abandon them nor has there been any wrong doing on my part to ever be questioned or put into position.

Some questions I am asking myself while dealing with emotional pain are

Where does emotional pain come from?

What does emotional pain feel like?

What kind of situations, events or relationships in my life can lead to emotional pain?

How have I dealt with emotional pain the past?

What actions in my day to day life show me I might be dealing with some emotional pain?

Are these actions working for me?

What can I do differently to deal with my emotional pain?

Is there any guidance in God’s word about dealing with emotional pain, and where can I find it?

My son Tyler, my best friend has been a very large part of my life. Always having an open, full and loving relationship.

Having taken and taught many classes for View Point Health at New Rock and been in attendance and a graduate of The Respect Institute through the State of GA by Mr. Joel Slack the classes teach you to tell your story. To share your life. I am doing so. Being the advocate that Deputy District Attorney Mr. Richard R. Read taught me to be nearly 20 years ago.

I have been in attendance taking and teaching classes at New Rock through View Point Health. Taken and graduated The Respect Institute training. Graduated from The ACT Team of the State of GA and graduated the GPSI The GA Peer Support Institute training offered through scholarship by The GA Mental Health Consumer Network. A day was cut short due to my son being very ill and needing medical attention. I still prepared and turned in my project to New Rock even though I was unable to present it as of this point. I hope to have it on display at either New Rock or at The GA Mental Health Consumer Network very soon.

This is my Voice of Vocation. I have hurt so deeply over these issues that the State of GA and my ex husband and his family have put me through that I may never truly heal. I live it day in and day out to this date.

I try forgiving and forgetting.

But my Voice of Vocation inside me will not allow it to be forgotten.

Forgiveness is not for the person you hurt, it is for you.

Reflect on a person or loved one, or two that you have hurt by your past and present behaviors or has hurt you.

Was or is it worht the pain that you are putting them and yourself through?

Have you asked for forgiveness from that person? If no why not?

Have you forgiven yourself? Have you forgotten?

How can you move forward and live a healthy life again?

I try my best to stay actively involved in community and to live a healthy life but not all days are good days. I have been an active full time blogger for The Covington News for nearly 3 years now and it has served as most therapeutic and keeps me involved in community activities and serves its purpose in therapeutically healing me.

What began as tearing photographs and ads from magazines as journaling turned into jounaling with pen to paper, WordPress blog and now The Covington News blog. Journaling is fun and there are no rules.

Benefits of Journaling:

Manage anxiety

Reduce Stress

Cope with Depression

Journaling helps control your symptoms and improve your mood by

Helping you prioritize problems, fears and concerns

Tracking any symptoms day to day so that you can recognize triggers and learn ways to better control them

Providing an opportunity for positive self – talk and identifying negative thoughts and behaviors.

Building happiness includes gratitude, acts of kindness, exercise, meditation, positive journaling and fostering relationships.

The O.C.G.A. is my Voice of Vocation and I will survive and live to tell the tale.
