Blog Therapy

I created this blog awhile back and never got to writing about anything...until now.

I am going to try to use this blog as therapy for the journey I am about to reluctantly embark on. I will be using The Courage To Heal Workbook by Laura Davis and I hope that through my transperancy and determination I will become a better person, better wife, better sister, better daughter, better friend. Through the strength I will gain from God, my husband, my family and friends I hope this blog will others help others, even if in just a small way.

So here goes...

I am an artist, a lover of animals, first generation American, first generation college graduate, a new wife, a new aunt, right brained & left brained. I believe its our duty as citizens to volunteer our time and resources on a regular basis...

but sadly, though I wear so many different hats, I have always and still only see myself as a child sexual abuse victim. I am still that 5 year old hiding under the bed because my sister hid me there to protect me from our perpetrator. My sister sacrificing herself for me becomes a recurring theme through out my life.
