||I have 300 pages written for my first book,a memoir, I'm Barbara, Not Barb. My story begins with my relationship with my Dad. When I was five, two of my brothers began sexually abusing me, but I never told anyone. When I was ten, my dad began drinking and never stopped. My coping mechanisms included counting, weaving, chanting, and living a fanatasy life in my head.
As an adult, I struggled to exist living an emotional roller coaster. For the last two chapters I share my journey through five years of therapy.
