Truthfully, I was just trying to forget some of the Christmas' that followed. My Dad left my Mom when I was 11 because she was having an affair. He took me with him (purely to get back at her) I spent the next year with him, living like a bum. He wouldn't let me call home. He even hid his change from me so I couldn't make a phone call! Finally, a teenage girl I met in a hotel parking lot taught me how to make a collect call. While he was sleeping off a bottle of scotch, I called my mother and the teenager helped me tell her where I was hidden with my Dad.
Three police and four court orders later, I was back with my mom and sisters and her new husband. it was like walking into a play in the middle of an act! And, my Dad was barred from seeing me and died ten years later without ever seeing me again.
My daughter is the same age right now that I was when I was abducted. It has really bought back some long buried shit for me and I'm doing my best to play "denial" with that.
I don't say any of this to garner sympathy. It's just a statement on how those things imprint on us for the rest of our lives. I All we can do is put them in a "place" and try to forget they ever happened!!
Thanks for the kind words.
