    I ran away from home at 19, when I knew my dad could not make me come back home. For 10 years after that, I wanted to believe that I had left the incest at home and that it wasn’t still affecting me but it was. I stuffed emotions until I would explode like a volcano with lava flowing out uncontrollably on anyone that got too close, usually my husband. I would hold the tears in until once every few months, late at night, I couldn’t hold them in any longer. My husband was a sweetheart and accepted that I couldn’t tell him why I was crying. He would hold me until the tears stopped. At age 27, I hit bottom emotionally and started digging my way out. The story is much longer and part of it is told on my blog. Part of it is still waiting to be written.

    Thanks for commenting Patricia. Your story and your blog is inspirational. I’m so happy you, like me, took on this task of coming out from under so long ago. It took me way too long. I hope we can encourage others who come to your pages and mine to do the same. All of us have suffered and share similar stories. Only the circumstances vary but none of us ever come out of incest unscathed. Thanks for helping me do what I must now do for myself and others.
