‘My life was not ruined. Nor was I destroyed. I want to change the narrative around victims of childhood sexual abuse’

I have wanted to find a way to tell my story for years. I often think about writing a book but every time I begin, I end up in a dark and scary cul-de-sac.

I feel my story needs to be told through conversation, because a part of my story was surviving childhood sexual abuse, and telling my story in full, in print, somehow feels too raw.
