Seventy Thousand Camels A Motivational Survivor’s Memoir
At age 16, Angelica ran away from her new home in Australia and a narcissistic mother, living for a time in a youth refuge and on the street. Angelica thought she had found love when in fact she lost more of herself through this encounter. She finally settled for a more tempestuous marriage to Rhys that lasted far too long, producing three children including a son living with Autism.
Newly divorced and still lost, Angelica embarked on a series of internet dating relationships that took away more of her soul. She then discovered a degree of solace and introspection as a Juvenile Justice Officer working with detainees aged 10 to 21.
Reaching further crossroads in her life, Angelica swapped juvenile prison for its adult counterpart. Moving state, she met “Brew”, a fellow correctional officer who would change her life forever. But despite his unfailing love and support, she entered a downward spiral into depression and suicidal ideation.
Now recovered, Angelica takes stock of her life and all she learned from her journey so far.
