February 23, 2018 at approximately 5 am my life was altered... I remember hearing those bullets coming through those windows and my body crashing to that floor not being able to feel my leg! I remember screaming for help and calling out to God as my body became more faint from all the blood I was losing! I remember them trying to move me and how painful it was to just lift me off that floor. I remember waking up to my leg wrapped and not being able to even lift myself up because my nerve in the left side of my body was gone! I remember how my mom and friends had to come bathe and clothe me because the staff at the facilities didn’t WANT to and as a result I even fell hard from trying to do it on my own!! I remember when their staff didn’t even want to touch me because I was trans. I remember the countless sleepless nights I had to encounter, all the nights I sat in that bed and cried, the many nightmares I woke up screaming from... Then I remember God and my Granny/ma Louise Haywood-Brantley coming to tell me “it’s alright, it’s ok” and that was the time I stopped being a victim and became A SURVIVOR‼️ But after experiencing so much transphobia at Spanish Hills Wellness Suites I took a turn and found College Park Rehabilitation Center ! The way they took care of me was unparalleled! I thank God for that facility especially Ms. Zetta who was my spiritual warrior... That lady read scriptures to me nearly everyday, prayed with me, whatever I needed she went out her way. Lateesha was my “bestie” there she made everything so smooth, and not to mention Ms. Julie the director and Mrs. Karen the D.O.N. if it wasn’t for the 2 of you and Bishop Bonnie Radden I wouldn’t even have made it there! Thank you all for a pleasant experience and being trans-friendly! Every step I took became easier, it became powerful... Because LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL!!!! 46 days.... I lied in that bed 46 days! Then Ms. Zetta reminded me AGAIN... “I will survive”! This was a journey I HAD to go through... Tedious but needed! Now is the hard part, I have to take care of myself which means bills... Being a former entertainer I am not able to work for at least a year they say, But my faith in God knows I will get through this sooner! However, I’m asking for help in anyway that you all could help contribute to me until my return to the stage! #Blessings ❤️
