I wrote a book last month. I don’t know if any one will read it, but my heavy mind was lightened and my heart lost some of its darkness. It was my dreams that have haunted me and they had to be exorcised, and my book was the catalyst. Please read it with an open mind and feel the strength and love I have earned, that has made it possible. ‘Silent Screams’ by Sherry Raby.

    Thank you for asking. In a lot of ways it did. Even after all these years there are things that can be said that will trigger that anger and hurt again.
    I’ve never really told me mom what all happened. And the few times I have started, it always came back around to “You weren’t raised that way. I would have….” I don’t think anyone truly knows what they would do unless they were in that situation. It’s embarrassing, demeaning, and takes all your self esteem. I was ne of the lucky ones to have survived, and like I’ve said in several different of my meanderings, I was brought up to move on and not feel sorry for yourself. You need to learn from your mistakes and try not to make them again. My kids are the strong ones. They are true survivors. My daughters are amazing strong women, and my sons are strong caring men, and I’m just a little biased.
    All in all, I think the dreams will always be there, but I can sleep in the dark again, and walk the house in the night without looking over my shoulder to see if any one is behind me.
    Thank you again for asking.

    I think you must be an incredibly strong woman to have gone through so much and come out the other side. Did writing your story help with the dreams?

      I’ve put it on Amazon. I’ve had a few people check it out. But no feedback.

        Silent Screams You can look it up by my name. Sherry Raby Let me know what you think. It’s the first time I actually wrote something that was for adults and is based on a real part of my life, that can now be dealt with. 🙂

        I just finished your book last night. You did a wonderful job of pulling me in to your emotions in the story. At times it was actually a little hard to read because I felt for your character so strongly. You have a wonderfully descriptive style.
