"One day your big mouth will get you into trouble," my father told me. For 25 years I kept quiet.
A six-year old child with sole care of a mother suffering with clinical depression, diabetes and eating disorders; ostracized by the Jewish community and the community at large; socially isolated, neglected, physically, emotionally and sexually abused and living in poverty.
This is the first of three manuscripts written soon after I came out of a psychotherapeutic community in 1984.
My story is told through the thoughts and voice of a traumatized, isolated child, enduring the stresses and strains of day to day life under difficult circumstances.
My genre is factual meaning, my writing is not contrived or used for best effect. I tell it how it was in my own words and writing style.
