Welcome. I hope that as you walk through the pages here, you will find the comfort, encouragement, and help you need for whatever you are going through at this stage of your life.
Recovery is not easy. It is painful, but I can tell you from experience that the rewards far outweighs the pain. The rewards will pour out from you to the ones you love. You will be free from the symptoms and after-effects of abuse. You will learn healthy ways of coping with the stresses and painful circumstances. You will learn how to let the 'real' you become known to those you love enhancing your life and the life of your family and friends. You will learn how to trust, or not trust when called for. You will stop repeating the unhealthy choices you have been making in your llife, recognizing the patterns and changing them. You will take control of your life so that you are the one making choices and will take responsibility for those choices. You will learn, if you stay on this journey, how to forgive and let it go so the past has no more hold on you.
I will be honored to give you support and encouragement through the writings, articles, my own area - 'annie's Corner', the forums and much more. I physically can no longer do much in the way of adding articles and more information as I used to, and many times I've wondered if I should take the site down, but then I'll get an email from someone expressing how much they have been helped, so I know it is still doing good. My son will be making some changes to the site soon to make it easier for more articles to be added as well.
Thenks again for visiting, and I would love to hear from you. If you'd like to read my writings and story you can go directly to: annie's Corner
