    Dear Viga,
    Thank you for sharing this story by Karen Lee. How very brave she is, as well as an inspiration. She found her way to healing and happiness. We all need to hear these tributes to bravery.

      I agree Nancy that we all need to share and read such stories. Memoirs by everyday people like you, me Karen Lee and others ie.. the non-celebrities who can speak to ordinary man or woman out there are invaluable.

    Thanks so much for the feedback – yes, I agree it takes a lot of courage for any of us to face some of the issues in our lives but hiding is so much more painful in the end.

    As to be expected, another beautifully haunting tale. I can see everything so clearly by the feeling put into this and not by meticulous description. I thoroughly enjoyed this piece, a tale that stands up on it’s own. I’m extremely curious to know more. Thank you.
