The subject is not an easy one and some people may feel shocked with the events narrated by the author about the sexual abuse she suffered as a child and a teenager and the battering her, her brothers and sister went through during most of their childhood. The audiobook does not only provide a hard recount on that particular real life situation narrated by the author herself, but it also mentions all the procedure involved in this sort of circumstances and, furthermore, how people in that condition would do to overcome the very horrifying situation in order to get control of their lives and move on leaving the past behind.
It is highly recommendable for those who had suffered a similar situation or those people who know anybody who was going or is still going in a similar scenario depicting in the material. Whatever the case, the material will give those persons several hints of what to do and how to bring awareness to a situation many people prefer to hide.
There was an incident involving a glass of spilled milk at your high school boyfriend, Paul’s home. This incident inspired the title of your book, Spilled Milk. Tell me about that.
It was an epiphany. I was sitting at the kitchen table expecting [my boyfriend’s] father to go into a rage over this glass of spilled milk because mine would have. The adrenaline that my body concocted waiting for the explosion had no outlet, and I remember furiously shaking all over. I was confused, alarmed, and quickly saddened by the realization that there were real families out there that did not immediately abuse their children when they did something “wrong”.
How important is it for victims of domestic abuse to know that they have family support outside of the home?
It breaks my heart to know that there are people who are experiencing child abuse, sexual abuse, or physical abuse and feel that they have no one to turn to. I thought I was in the same position. I never expected or considered that anyone in my immediate family would be able to come to our rescue if I said I needed help. Maybe that’s where a lot of people get stuck. Until you say something, you don’t really know what resources will be made available to you. It’s kind of like when communities come together to crowd-fund when someone they know has a house fire. Clearly something like that isn’t planned, but the response is often overwhelmingly supportive of the family.
Even if resources aren’t completely clear, or if someone wanting to come forward doesn’t have a large family, each county nationwide has a crisis center for domestic violence/sexual abuse and they have fantastic resources too: shelter, emergency funds, free counseling, etc. ANYTHING is better than staying in an abusive situation, I know that now.
