You ARE an inspiration on so many levels. You never gave up on your Self, even though there were times where you probably thought that you had. It often takes a very dramatic situation (like trying to kill your husband) to realize you don't recognize the person you've become because s/he is doing something or about to do something that is completely out of character. It's when we face the horror of what we're capable of in a horrible circumstance that we end up taking a stand, either by putting an end to what lead us up to that point or by actually doing something we regret for the rest of our lives. I had more than one of those moments within my own life. I couldn't believe what I had become.

But like you, it lead to significant changes and shaped who I am today. All of it did.

It is heartwarming that you have found the stories on this site helpful in your quest to stand up and fight for our children. And by now you've delivered your first speech on child abuse. Keep up the great work! The world needs people like you, people who have lived it, survived it, and now are thriving in spite and because of it.

I send you love, light and healing energy, Annie. Thank you for sharing your healing story with my visitors and me.

Some feedback
by: Annie

In my story I said that I would give my first talk on child abuse in January. Unfortunately, this was postponed but I finally gave my talk on 14 April and again on the 21 April. I must say it was hard,. It was one of the most difficult things I have ever had to do. But with a very dry mouth and my determination I pushed through. Within a half an hour after my talk a gentleman approached me and asked for the helpline numbers that I had provided. This made everything worthwhile. I had reached at least one person that I know of. In the following few days, many people came to tell me that my talk had touched them and although no details were given, many admitted to experiencing some form of abuse as children. Once again I want to thank each and every person that has contributed to the site and especially you Darlene, for giving me the confidence to step up and do something. God bless you.
