Patient Leader

I am a Blogger, Podcaster, Author, and Advocate for Survivors of Abuse. I started Surviving My Past as an outlet to share my story of survival from childhood sexual abuse, narcissistic abuse, and bullying. Since beginning my blog in Feb 2016, it has blossomed into a safe haven where survivors from across the globe can share their story, inspire others, and feel validated in their own survivor journey. Content on the blog includes posts, podcasts, and videos all in support of mental health awareness and advocacy, and all who have survived the trauma of abuse.

Surviving My Past was started originally as a therapy blog in Feb 2016 but has blossomed into a place where abuse survivors, trauma survivors, and those who live with Dissociation, Anxiety, and PTSD can submit their stories or join Matt on a Podcast, along with Matt's writing to inspire others during his own journey.  — Matthew
