There are practical stories, funny stories, and horrific stories, and running through all is my story of a woman trying to recover her lost soul. My maternal grandfather sexually molested and abused me beginning in 1949 and continuing to about 1960.

I had one sibling, a younger sister with Down Syndrome. It seemed she got all but the perverse attention. I complied without complaint with my grandfathers will for fear of losing my place in the family. I dissociated from those experiences, buried the memories in my subconscious, until 1987 - when I was 40.

I survived, part of me thrived, for years, until the memories heaved up. I overcame it for 40 years. But Ill never get over it. I dont want to get over it entirely. Its who I am. I can barely live whats left of my life in partnership with that shattered child within. But I cant abandon her, never again, no matter what. I am speaking for her by telling her truth. She requires acceptance. I require acceptance. That is my integrity: healing the split, and telling the truth. No more secrets.
