Tonight's special guest is Jeanette Allison from Monterey, CA, who suffered neglect and emotional abuse at the hands of her mother, a raging and mean alcoholic with Bipolar disorder, a sadistic and narcissistic personality who suffered from a schizoaffective disorder with paranoia. Jeanette's father was the enabler in the family. He worked three jobs to support the family of four. Her mother targeted her specifically, not her more compliant brother. Until recently Jeanette was a single mother and an LGBT activist. She had problems with alcohol in the past and successfully broke free of those problems through the help of AA's 12 Step program which she still practices on a daily basis, targeting the spiritual malady that lead her to drink in the first place. Although AA has been the solution to her alcoholism, she found no relief for trauma she suffered and carried with her from childhood. This is changing now as Jeanette found an answer to addressing unhealed maladies when she learned of Rivka Edery's book "Trauma and Transformation: A 12 Step Guide" and NAASCA's every other Thursday night "Stop Child Abuse Now" radio talk series that's devoted to the application of a 12 Step Program and approach to recovery the trauma of childhood abuse. Jeanette continues to be a shining light, despite suffering from a traumatic work accident, and a rare hand tumor that have halted her dream job as an occupational therapist. As such has a special interest in individuals with disabilities. She married her wife, Jackie Allison, this summer, and strives to be a leader who use her compassion, her kindness and the love of writing and photography to heal others' hearts.
