Tonight's special guest is Lisa Dawn Wilkins from North Platte, Nebraska. A survivor of severe childhood sexual and physical abuse, her adult life was just as disastrous and painful. Now she's a foster parent and author of a new book, "Abuse The Darkness Within," expected out next year. She runs a Facebook Community of the same name. Lisa works to bring about awareness and to put an end to child abuse and domestic violence. "Medication to me is not the answer," Lisa says. "I healed and continue to heal by choosing to help others and challenge my fear one step at a time. I had several diagnoses through out my life and after studying them I knew that was not what I had. I knew what took me years to get to would take me years to come out of. Medication could not help me because I didn't suffer from chemical imbalances." She goes on, "I suffered from circumstances .. from things that happen to me. The psychologist try to push medication. But look at me. I refused and I am a productive citizen. We can choose to let them win or we can choose to win." Determined to succeed, Lisa went her own way. "I walked away from everyone and everything I knew my whole life and I put up a no contact order. I started over and my life has improved everyday their away. I still love them but I don't desire their approval or love any longer because you can't force love and some people are too self centered to see they are the problem." Lisa concludes, "I now share my story to bring awareness to what is real, what I lived through and what I do to over come."
