I could not look at photos taken during the abuse period, not for a very long time. That has changed over the last few years. As my mom is getting older she is starting to ship our childhood photos to us "kids." Thanks to my decades of th

It's normal to feel alone. Nobody understands, the streets are cold, no one cares, and all the lights are gone. The fear of loneliness i found out in my experience can only be removed when you accept this wound, when i decided to carry my ordeal and
