    Great Book

    Hi All.

    I came across the following book at my local library and thought it may be of interest.

    Stolen Voices... By Steven and Abby Levenkron.

    "Understanding and Treating Women's Childhood Sexual Abuse. The Sexually Abused Child As An Adult."

    I'm going to find this book. Thank you, Mandy.
    I'm strong willed and I tell it like it is. I make mistakes, I'm sometimes out of control, but I love and give with all my heart.

    Thank you for the tip. I think it's called "Stolen Tomorrows," but I found it by the author's name either way. I'm going to see if my library has it, if not, I will look for a bargain.

    Sure does suit me to a T right now because along with allowing myself to believe my memories comes the realization that the vile man called my "father" stole so very much from me. It boggles my mind and has me nearly overwhelmed. But you know what? Now that I'm daring to believe my memories, I think I can also start working on the anger that I carry around, too.

    I'm getting my yearly bout of bronchitis/pneumonia so I may not be as chatty online but I will be checking in, if only from the shadows.
