Years of manipulation and abuse molded molded me, but my acceptance hardened me and taught me how to live a less than normal life. Based on True Life Events.
Am I Still The Victim is the true story about my life and a difficult story to tell. It took thirty plus years to write and up until now, only been shared with those closest to me. As time went on, I developed some private friendships with others like me and decided to share it in hopes that it can help others who struggle with some of the things I have dealt with over the years.
Don’t misunderstand… this is not a self help book or a self esteem builder. For me, writing this book and reading it was the wake up call and the constant reminder of how good things can be perverted into something horrible. This is a 2nd Edition of this book as new events have taken place and with a new outlook on life, I felt it was important enough to add more to this piece. It had been my hope to find closure by writing this book, but instead, I found something else. Something more meaningful and motivating that has opened new opportunities for me to move forward instead of looking for ways to forget the past.
The story is not only graphic, but it deals with adult situations. Situations that some would consider wrong, inappropriate, abusive and criminal. It has never been my intention to call out the guilty. It serves no purpose for me now. My experiences educated me and my hope is that readers find answers they may be looking for – even those who are simply looking for the answer to the question, “Am I being entertained?”
