Tonight's special guest is Pam Baucom from Concord, North Carolina, who was traumatized all through her childhood, starting at age 3 by her father. The abuse happened mainly while her mother was at work. "When I turned 6 he told me I was a big girl now and that night he raped me," Pam says. "At 12 I was forced to have an abortion. Then again at 14." During this time she was forced to watch . Her brother bagun raping her, too, and would share Pam with his friends. She had her third abortion at 17. Pam explains she didn't know who the father was since she was being raped by her father, her brother and 10 of his friends. She had numerous suicide attempts. "I have been on psych units at least 40 times." Pam describes herself as a 'self-harming' individual. "I would burn and cut myself almost daily. I was diagnosed with an eating disorder which landed me in hospitals all over the place." Pam goes on, "At the age of 16 I weighed 68 lbs. I still battle an eating disorder today. I never heard the words 'I Love You' but was told that I was worthless and no one would ever love me. I moved out of my parents house when I was almost 19 and rented a room at the YWCA." She's doing a lot better now and tells us her therapist says she supports Pam telling her story now 100%. We appreciate her sharing her life with her NAASCA family. "I would like to thank you for your assistance in this very delicate situation." Pam says. "I just feel I have to do this to get to a point of freedom.  Thank you for your patience as it has taken me a long time to get to this point."
