Abuse and mental illness

Ken shared this story from KSL about a woman who suffered serious sexual abuse/incest and how her daughter has survived and thrived in spite of her mother's serious illness.  The mother actually succeeded in not perpetuating the abuse against all odds, but her daughter actually had to take care of her and her younger sibs.  Worth reading.  Mother Had a Secret

  1. 14 different personalities! Wow! I am very impressed that the mother and daughter both did everything in their power to stop the cycle from continuing. It says a lot about both of them. It takes a strong person not to let the violence or trauma continue.

    It's sad that the daughter had to grow up so quickly, but it seems like she doesn't blame her mother for anything.

    She is very brave for sharing her story and I'm sure it was therapeutic for her. Sometimes the best way to feel better is to vent.
