Welcome. This is a safe place.
Thank you so much for being here. I created this blog to help people feel like they are not alone. Since I started this journey I have received many comments and thank you emails for helping people understand that they are not alone. Complex Post-Traumatic Disorder, psychological abuse, emotional abuse, adverse childhood experiences, sibling bullying and gaslighting; these subjects are all here.
I have come to the conclusion that human beings are born with an innate capacity to triumph over trauma. I believe not only that trauma is curable, but that the healing process can be a catalyst for profound awakening—a portal opening to emotional and genuine spiritual transformation.

My personal story of the struggle to overcome a childhood of abuse at the hands of my cruel, bullying brother. Memories of this abuse remain deeply buried until my Aunt died in Manhattan, leaving an estate I must settle with my estranged brother. As I tried to administer the estate, I am plagued by symptoms of post-traumatic stress. Suppressed memories start to rise to the surface.Buy NOW
