Thank you for sharing and welcome to MS. As we say, sorry you have to be here, but glad you're here.

You're not the only one here dealing with covert/emotional incest issues from their mothers; you can check out the Female Abusers forum. You also are probably not the only other former child star here, certainly not the only one here with a public profile.

We're here to help you in your recovery path. So read and share; we're here for you.

I'll be just fine and dandy
Lord, it's like a hard candy Christmas
I'm barely getting through tomorrow
But I won't let sorrow get me way down.
