You are a remarkable young woman...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

You are indeed a survivor, Emily. You have SO much to be proud of. You have an inner strength that has, and will continue to take you far in your life. I believe this with all my heart. And if and when the memories resurface, try not to bury them, because in burying them you may find yourself dealing with issues you never realized possible; issues that could threaten everything you've ever worked towards. The best way I've found for dealing with the residual of child abuse is by actually dealing with it, rather than circumventing it. For me, that was in therapy. Perhaps that will be a path you walk as well.

Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me, Emily. I wish you (and your boyfriend) all the best in your future together. Stay strong.
