I really do feel that I've been dealt an unnecessarily harsh hand, with all the things I've had to go through in my life. First there was sexual abuse and violence I suffered at the hand of my own father, plus sexual abuse from my grandfather, and various other dirty old men during my pre-pubertal years that I encountered. I also had three miscarriages in a row, before I finally gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Jessica, who went on to die from leukaemia at the age of 10.

Your story just jumps from one episode to another, it is hard to stay focused on the message you are trying to convey.

You are such a brave women. Especially for writing about it and putting it up. I have never known someone who has been through anything like this, maybe from movies and stuff but not happening in real life.
I nearly started to cry. I applaud you for being a strong, brave women :)
