‘All The Way To Santa Fe’ By Jackie Ferrell

Some of us may ask ourselves “do I live or do I die?” when facing trauma and loss in our lives. Considering these exact words may not form in our conscious minds, the feelings themselves can still be overwhelming and all consuming. In my memoir, these feelings were in my conscious mind as a senior in high school and again recently when losing one home after another mostly as a result of mold. When indoor dampness and mold leads to allergic rhinitis, this results in a cost of $3.7 billion annually. With 70% of the homes in this country containing mold, 28% of the US population also carry the genes that make it impossible to process the mycotoxins found in mold regardless of the amount of exposure. When my husband and I begin losing one home after another mostly due to mold, the trauma of each loss triggered memories of my early childhood abuse, resulting in a healing journey no one expected. With each loss, we began another search for a safe and healthy home bringing about healing and revelations never considered for those suffering with the scars of severe childhood abuse. My story begins with the commonality of childhood abuse and neglect, but it’s a story of adapting, of determination, and most importantly of never giving up.
