I am a sexual abuse survivor who told the truth, worked hard to heal, and ultimately lost my family, but not myself. When I started this journey, I was stunned and devastated by my family’s responses. I felt confused, alone and lost. Today, I write about coping with family while healing from sexual abuse so that others may feel supported and understood.
