Haven't been in Michigan since 1963. Grew up, went to elementary school and Junior high.
My experience with sexual abuse began in 1959. I was never incarcerated, So, prison experiences are not the same. Alcohol abuse 15 -42, Lead poisoning up to elbow at 6, hospitalized, molested 10-12; raped 13, 14 ,16. Married at 20, 4 kids, diagnosed with CPTSD and chronic major depression at 42, Each of our stories are different. But each of us struggles with the same journey toward healing and recovery.
I welcome your arrival, I hope you will find others who you can feel safe with and see us as peers, together.
