Abused

I’ve been abused. It happened to me as a child. I’ve talked about it before here on Hitting Reset. I’m not afraid to talk about it anymore. I’ve processed the repeated trauma I sustained as a child with S back in June of 2016. I wrote about that experience in two places: Processing a Childhood Trauma – […]

Lessons in Recovery

When I walked in to […]
