I am a woman learning to heal from past sexual, emotional, and physical abuse along with neglect. I have been diagnosised with DID and Complex PTSD both direct causes of the abuse.
The holidays are supposed to be a time of happiness and family. This will be my first holiday without my family. As a choice, a few months ago I have separated myself from my family. After learning that my mom "pimped" me out starting around the age of 5. I decided that I should separate from her and the rest of my family. She has always put me in a bad place and brought out my little ones. In order for me to heal from the past abuse I must grow and be strong. And if that means spending the holidays without her and the rest of the family...so be it.
I am glad I have my two daughters. They bring joy to my life. I am also glad that I have my "sister" to spend time with. She is the one person I can be honest with outside of therapy. Dr. S is awesome and is really helping me. Without her I don't know where I would be. Thanks Dr.S for showing me I have a VOICE. Thanks for showing me that I am strong and that's why I am still here...
