In 2008 I was 51, still married, sober, in nursing school, the father of 9 children (#10 was still to come), finally on meds for bi-polar disorder, still secretly acting out, in therapy but still not telling the truth about being abused. It took me another 5 years to get there. Thats one of my adopted children, a soccer star, with me.

Come home

I said

I'm confused and alone

They said

We understand

I found out they don't

I'll walk the path exactly how I've always done it

Hi Jude,

Very nice picture indeed.

Remind yourself: "I feel afraid but I am not in danger! I am safe now, here in the present." Remember you are now in the safety of the present, far from the danger of the past.
