I’m Elizabeth, Lizzy or Lizibet to my friends.
I am not sure what I should say about myself here, to be honest. This is the first time I’ve felt brave enough to write about myself and my life like this and I am nervous about being this open but I think it is time to tell the stories, as GwenAnn has told me on many occasions. I might not be ready to divulge every part of my story because there is a part of me that is afraid this might bring my past to my front door, I can tell you how I came to be here, though.
I met GwenAnn at a meeting for survivors. She was different in how she would tell her story and talk to other people in the group and we became friends. We would all journal and write what we thought about or felt and she really thought I wrote well so… She invited me here to have a place to share my story in a safe way but in a way that won’t hurt my family any more.
Thank you all for reading!
