Once upon a time, when I was a little girl, I was tucked warm and safe in my bed with a loving family to protect me. In the blink of an eye it all changed before my pretty baby blues. The grim reality of a mentally ill mother and a dying brother had become my nightmare. The reality that ripped my family apart and sent my distraught father running, leaving me to deal with my mother’s mania. Left alone with my psychotic mother, I was forced to deal with the horrors that lay before me. I was a scared and confused little girl that had to learn how to survive many tragedies and overcome countless acts of abuse. This is a gripping tale of my childhood. I had to pull deep from within my soul to muster up the strength and courage to survive, with only blind faith and loss of innocence to lead the way. I was only six when my world came crashing down around me. Read my harrowing story, from a child’s point of view; it promises to keep you emotionally invested from start to finish.
