Thank you for sharing your story! There are so many things to be learned from your journey! Small town America has some great things to offer but then there is “what will people say” mentality that causes more harm than any action. My story isn’t the same but the destructive actions I truly understand. Again thank you for your voice…that of a small town Southern girl just wanting out.

Hi guys –

Thanks so much for all the kind words. I’m really touched by the support and was so honored to be able to share the story with you. At the time, it didn’t feel like anything good would come out of it, but I really am grateful for the experience.

… and for getting the hell out of South Georgia where, yes, Tifton, home of the ABAC Rodeo Team, was the “big town” because they had a mall.

What a powerful and harrowing story. The image of your teenage self laboring alone… afraid to wake the house… then your mother’s refusal to take you to the closer hospital… and you so terrorized that you couldn’t speak against it… there are no words. It breaks the heart. I’m so sorry you had to go through that alone. I’m so, so happy for you that you got away.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
