Thank you so much for you support and encouragement. It’s not easy to share ugly truths about family, but it is indeed therapeutic. If my terrible family can help one person, I’m happy about that. Life doesn’t come with instruction manuals. As we live, we learn and if my stories can help someone else heal — then my job on this earth is done. We have far more in common than we realize if we’d just share our differences. I give honor where honor is due, and my grandma deserved no honor.

Our lives are dumpster fires because of my grandma. When people don’t deal with their issues and they choose to have children, they create yet another generation of hurt people. Someone has to stop the cycle. I don’t want any child to experience what I did. Thanks for reading.
