Tonight's special guest is Teresa Belsky of North Platt, Nebraska, an abuse survivor and activist who's especially concerned with anti-trafficking campaigns, issues of child XXX-rated pictures and Internet crimes against women and children. Teresa writes, "My first major nervous breakdown began after the FBI came to our door to question my then husband. To make a long story short, I wasn't his camera’s only victim." (He had been hiding a camera for 10 years) "I started having flashbacks of attacks mixed with memories of happiness. A cycle. I was married to Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde." In the ensuing few years, Teresa suffered from numerous embarrassments, flashbacks and humiliations. Bouts of PTDS were frequent. Teresa says, "The moral of my story is to be careful how the use of cameras can affect your life. I understand that my ex started watching XXX-rated materials at age 5 from 3pm to 5pm every day after school. Unfortunately, he was raped by a neighbor man at the age of 7." She concludes, "Thank you for allowing me to pass the lesson I learned on to you. By doing so, I did not suffer in vain." She's returned to school and is planning to open an office of W.C.A.I.C. (Women and Children Affected by Internet Crimes) in North Platte in 2015. "When I initially sought help in the past, I was told 'Sorry, we can't help you. NO ONE is trained in that area.' Thus... I am a Psychology major and future Therapist for Human Trafficking Victims / Survivors in 2015 (after I graduate)."
