About Me

A little about me

This is a story of HOPE..

This is a story of HOPE. It is my personal experience of Childhood Sexual Abuse and its impact on me from childhood through to adulthood. It details how I used alcohol and drugs as a means of coping with the long- lasting harm of abuse and its impact on my life.
