Tonight's special guest is Jori Nunes from Modesto, California, a returning NAASCA family member who is a sex abuse survivor and author of the book "Chocolate Flowers: A Twisted Tale That Deserves to be Told" which was written for awareness to help understand and protect children. Jori says, "I want to talk tonight about the shame/blame we feel when releasing the dark secret." She explains her life: "After Pandora's box opened and I was insulted by family saying I have made the accusations up my entire life, I went in to a dark deep depression. My six figure business became a six figure debt and I planned my suicide but I wanted to leave behind a creepy little story so people would understand what was in my mind and things that happened in my past." And that's where "Chocolate Flowers" was born. "The book was fiction but obviously held truth. I went on Dr.Phil and was told if I didn't want to talk about something to deny it" She felt blindsided, told she'd changed her story after another show released their tape without her consent. "My depression spiraled out of control and there was another attempted suicide. It's been two years and I still think of the ways I could have handled my depression and past sexual abuse better, I just never knew how to deal with it." But she's felling better now. "I have come a long way and know my truth and try to help survivors of sexual abuse understand and deal with their feelings .. so they know they are not alone."
