breaking the cycle of abuse: new memoir REACHING

http://www.laura-dennis.com/ptsd-and-breaking-the-cycle-of-abuse/

From Laura:

Reaching, a memoir, now available on Amazon, shows how a legacy of abuse, neglect and down-right maliciousness can damage a child. You can read my review here.

It’s only by what some would say “the grace of God,” or luck, or the fact that she is a beautiful, loving person, that she married a good man and started a strong and loving family.

But that didn’t mean that her abuse was over. Grace was so traumatized, that she didn’t even realize that the help she sought from a well-known pastor … was a wolf in shepard’s clothing. You read that right. Brock was no sheep. He was a born leader, and he led Grace into further confusion, delusions, and lies. Reaching is the story of how Grace got herself to that point, and how she ultimately survived.

Today we’re talking a bit about the role her mother played in how Grace viewed herself, and about PTSD triggers.
