I was sexually abused from the age of five and believed that I was being punished for being born and that I should be ashamed of what happened to me and that I must have asked for it and was a whore as my mother called me. I was bullied through school for being overweight but it was better than being at home where I was beaten and scream at daily. I was anorexic and bulimic then addicted to alcohol and drugs for many years. I became a mother and still struggled with my past and after many attempts of suicide and trying to destroy my life to take away those who loved me most, I made a continuous choice to take my life back. I am sober for ten years now, no longer attempt to take my life, have just celebrated my daughters high school graduation and love waking up every day to kissing my husband, my son, and my daughter and thanking God for my life. I founded Meant To Rise - a charity supporting survivors of child sexual abuse and Author of "Because I was abused".
