I am a Survivor! I was molested by my oldest brother for many years. It set me up to be the victim of abuse for the next 40 or so years of my life. He took from me my self esteem, self worth. By the time I was 18 I had 2 children and was divorced. When I was 21 I married my abusive husband and was married to him for 29 years. During those years I became an alcoholic and allowed me and my children to be a part of the abusive cycle. At the age of 46 I got sober, at the age of 50 I got a divorce. That is when my true recovery began. I am now 61 and sober for almost 15 years. My life is not always easy but, it is worth all the hard work I have done on myself. I am a SURVIVOR!
