I am a new Author. I am married to a wonderful man of 29 years who is my soul mate and my rock. I am a retired Private Detective and Paralegal. I have one Daughter who is married with three beautiful children.
I began writing my story in January of 2011. I have never written anything except daily journals until then. My counseling team, parents, friends, and family bugged me for ten years to get this story written and I will be honest, I hated the idea. (Probably why it took ten years, right?...lol)
My journey started when I agreed to be a guinea pig (or lab rat if you will). When therapy first started, it was to help me come out of a buried shell, to face some issues of marriage, and life in general. It grew to be quite complicated when at first my therapist thought was a split. When someone special came into my life, low and behold, we found there were many deeper issues. My adopted parents and I were never privy to the info that brought these deeper issues to light until much later. (i.e.13 years of therapy later)
This journey you take with me, if you so desire, has many vicissitudes, and multi facets, but it instills much needed healing to be writing my story.

CHILD ABUSE SO HORRIFIC IT SHATTERED THE MIND OF A CHILD INTO PIECES…
In the United States, society’s historical attitude about the sexual victimization of children can generally be summed up by one word: denial.
Child abuse makes headlines every day. Even so, the number of cases that make headlines are but a miniscule percentage of cases that actually occur. The rest, unreported, are missing from those headlines. Absent from the stories we read about is the most important aspect of that story – the voice of the victim.
This is one such story. Unlike any other true story of abuse, I suffer from a multitude of disorders as the result of the abuse. I suffered thirty-four and a half years of physical to sexual abuse; including incest. I am writing this story as it happened. It is raw. It is shocking. It is beyond belief and lies outside the boundaries of human decency.
What happens when the mind of an abused child breaks, and can take no more? What you will read here is the beginning of my journey to a healthy life. I am a divorcé for the fourth time, raising my seven-year-old daughter on my own.
