This podcast I talk with my mom on Mother's Day. My own mother is also a survivor of sexual abuse. She grew up in fear in an alcoholic home. Her abusive and alcoholic father beat her and sexually abused her. Her mother was raised an orphan who was ordered to do what you're told. Than fully my grandmother finally left him which I give her so much credit because I am sure it was not easy back in those days. My mom lost her two younger brothers to the disease of alcoholism way too soon. The wounds and scars run deep in family. Through my own work and therapy I see her struggles. I have heard her nightmares which include her screaming louder than you can imagine. When I started noticing this my heart hurts for her. I still see the little girl who doesn't know.
