I have been spending time trying to understand just why I went away from this place I love and so many blog friends I had grown to care about so much. I still don't have the answer but what I do know is that I want to be here writing and reading and caring. I really do. I have never forgotten how good it feels to have people who understand you supporting you and how good it feels to give that support back. So here I am back home.
"I am the black sheep of the family, which is pure irony since I was the victim. However, I know my situation is not a rarity. We victims of family sexual abuse represent what everyone else wants to forget. We are an unpleasant reminder of the ugly family secret, particularly if we refuse to go along with the pretense of the perfect family.
People only see what they are prepared to see, and I don't want to be part of a family who aren't prepared to see and talk about the truth of my story."
