This is a true story (part two of my story) written to give hope to anyone who has, or is now, dealing with some form of abuse. This book allows the reader to experience the painful process of reliving flashbacks, memories and nightmares. Opening old wounds so that I could heal required a lot of effort and determination. The devastation of abuse at the hands of my parents and in other relationships and my steps to survive is clearly told. My parents programming was so strong that my brothers and I continued playing our role's even as adults. Everyone in the small town where I grew up thought we were a normal loving family. The chain of people abuse can effect throughout our lifetime is endless. This book is not a plea for sympathy. My goal is increased awareness at the chain of injustice brought on by all forms of abuse.
