About me

Robin Donnelly is a wife, mother, licensed nurse, former home care business owner, memoirist, and author of Steel Town Girl.

When faced with an empty nest and retirement from the field of nursing, she realized she had cared for everyone but herself. Spiraling into a deep depression as she struggled to process painful childhood memories she stored away in a notebook, she sought counseling. It was there she learned that what she had endured as a parentified child was called narcissistic abuse, what she had was Complex P.T.S.D., and who she needed to take care of was herself.
