Welcome Everybody!

Welcome friends old and new to my new blog! This blog will serve as a forum for survivors to come and speak out and share our stories!

It also coincides with the publication of my first book (and NOT the last) Breaking The Silence...A Survivor's Story. I have included the link to the book. The goal of this book is two fold 1) to take another step in my healing process and 2) to encourage survivors who have not done so; direct on the path to healing. If by reading my book only ONE survivor starts on their healing journey then I will have succeeded beyond my wildest dreams!

I have also enlisted the help of my good friend Tery (aka Dream/Beach Writer) who will help me from time to time (as her schedule permits) with developing this blog! Thanks Tery for accepting my contributor invitation!

I also will be telling my own story of survival and my progress in healing! So come one come all and let us stand together and break the silence!

This is very timely because I am feeling triggered right now by something. My husbands friends look at a website with something about "jailbait" in it and post pics of underage girls. When I saw the pictures, I started having sort of an anxiety attack. I know it's from what I experienced and not sure how to handle these moments sometimes. It's sad there are so many pedophiles lurking around us.
