I just want to echo what Mar and Barbara have said. I'd noticed your book &
have been looking forward to reading it, and had not put 2 + 2 together to
realize you were the same person involved in the conflict here on this
list. and then the rest of what you talk about--I am just so sorry to hear
about it. thank you for having the bravery to write about your experience
and the strength to persevere through what sound like truly awful
experiences.
