Hi everyone!  This is a “memoir” blog, which means I am telling the story of my life.  I want this story to reach as many people as possible.  It is a story of neglect, pain, trauma, and mental illness.  It is also the story of hope, perseverance, and triumph.  In case you are just “tuning in,” it might be helpful to start at the beginning.  To that end, I am reposting my first post, “Family Legacy.”  Once you read that one and the ones following, it all becomes clear.  Thanks!  And if you know anyone who would find this story helpful, please feel free to Tweet or re-post.  Here’s the link…
