Sometimes the memories are too much to hold inside. Sometimes the pain just gets too big. Medicating our pain as survivors of child sexual abuse is one way to survive.
But as long as we are addicted, we will never thrive. Addiction kills relationships, careers, healing and spiritual growth. Addiction takes the life out of us and returns the destruction of all we hold dear in exchange for killing the pain.
David Pittman, director of Together We Heal, knows both the pain of abuse AND the pain of addiction. And now he knows the joy of helping others get free from both. Join David and Misa as they bring hope for healing from addiction and child abuse.

This is the first of a 6 part series on healing from sexual,or physical trauma.
Sexual violence and child sexual abuse understandably affect the whole person, and those effects can strongly impact our sexuality. How we see our body and approach our relationships can unconsciously be dictated by our negative experiences for years or even lifelong. Experiencing bad feelings when touched, having difficulty becoming aroused, disassociating during times that are meant to grow intimacy, or engaging in inappropriate sexual behaviors are all common sexual symptoms of previous abuse. But there is great hope for healing! Knowing that you are not alone and that we CAN talk about sexual issues without shame might be the first step. Join Misa as she discusses the healing journey into sexual wholeness after abuse on Beyond Abuse Radio.
Often times when someone has been sexually abused , they take on a false identity by building upon a foundation of "what" happened to them instead of "who" they really are. Many often to go through life wandering and wondering, who am I while trying to fill the void of a loss identity. Some resort to trying to please everyone by becoming who others say they are instead of being whom God created them to be. This is a very lonely, confusing time as you search for identity in ways that can me detrimental to you. When you build on a faulty foundation the structure will eventually collapse. So many of us have built a structure of pretense upon a faulty foundation and we're calling it life when's it's merely existing. We've layered shame, drugs, lies, deceit, promiscuity, sexual dysfunction, homosexuality, depression, fear, doubt, mistrust, rejection, low self esteem, pride, ababndonment issues and so many other things on top of what we've went through. We can't stay hidden under these covers any longer! We must live! We must peek our heads from those veiled places of our heart and discard the covers that we allowed to trap and snare us!The enemy does not want us to know who we really are! He wants us to be hidden in the residue of "what happened"and never tap into the real of "who we are" in Christ Jesus! Today we must declare, "The Covers Are Coming Off"! We wil not die but we will live and we will be who God has said we are! Arise from the ashes of molestation, rape and incest! Hold on to God and myself and many others who've been there! We won't let you fall! Regain your stance! Rediscover your voice! Reclaim your identity!
