What happened within our family should never have happened. It shattered our lives like glass.
Protecting one another through those early traumas seemed impossible as those new nightmares continued within.
I was unaware of the consequence and the bitter family feud that was developing before my very eyes.

The traumas of my own childhood came flooding back many times. I was faced with the thought of my own children living through the same trauma. Protecting my children through those nightmares was unbearable.
I desperately fought to keep hold of my own children for what seemed like a lifetime. My heart ached for them. I would have died without my children in my arms.

With no-one to talk to throughout the trauma, I became isolated. Segregated. My family became strangers unaware of the inner torment I was facing.

My fight for survival and happiness began.
The fight to be able to put the past behind me and find that inner peace and happiness I had strived for all those years? The happiness of my family, the rebuilding of our lives, and the hope that one day the bitter family feud will be over, once and for all.

As a young teen I spent each waking hour being creative in any way I could. I had big dreams of becoming a writer, or a reporter, or maybe even a singer or an actress. Dreaming took me into another world. A world full of joy, that I wanted to live in forever.
As I grew and became a mother, those earlier dreams were hidden away and I devoted my life and all my pride in raising my children. They grew and had families of their own, and the empty nest syndrome was and still is too hard to bear.
My focus became my work in the caring profession. My career as a Healthcare Assistant for the NHS, at the Royal Bolton Hospital became my life. It allowed me to provide support and comfort to the vulnerable. The pride of wearing the uniform and the care and compassion within my role was overflowing. It also provides a stark contrast the way it was within my childhood and my vulnerable youth.
