As a victim/survivor of sexual assault, you may have some of the following feelings...
Anger, Fear, Guilt, Loss of control, Powerlessness, Embarrassment, Depression, Isolation, Denial, Shame, Disbelief, Self-blame, Emotional shock
You may experience some or all of the above feelings. This is natural and every victim/survivor of sexual assault responds differently. (http://www.connsacs.org/seeksupport/assaulted.htm)
Remember, you are not alone and you are not to blame for what happened.
"Healing may not be so much about getting better, as about letting go of everything that isn't you - all of the expectations, all of the beliefs - and becoming who you are." - Rachel Naomi Remen

Today, our guest will be Ivonne Zucco, Executive Director at The Center for Sexual Assault Crisis Counseling and Education in Stamford, CT.

Carol is easy to talk to and easy to approach when it comes to your difficulties...She will address the tools you need to manage your addiction.
You can manage sex addiction with Carol the Coach!
We will discuss the historical minimization of sexual assault against women of color, her barriers to services, her help seeking behaviors and healing. Sexual assault within marriage is also a crime and not a memorandum of understanding or contractual submission for victimization. Can the church say: Amen to that?!!

bio about me
Friday shows are dedicated to how we survivors are doing something each day just for ourselves. Me, Me, Me day.
Polly grew up with six siblings in Mobile, Alabama, but was only 8 years old when her father died of lung cancer. Soon two neighborhood boys began to molest her, friends of her older twin brothers. A couple of years later she was assaulted by another neighbor and later by her older brother. She was able to break away from the abuse at the age of twelve, but was by then deep in the darkness of isolation. Polly is now a mother and grandmother, and has lived in Atlanta for the past 15 years and has become a devoted advocate for adult survivors of Child Sexual Abuse.
She began her organization, This One Step, to help older survivors of Child Sexual Abuse deal with the trauma of being part of what she has named, "The Unknown Generation" A generation of survivors who had nowhere to go for support. In her late teens she began writing as a coping mechanism to deal with the PTSD. Her three books, "Cider Blocks and Oven Racks", "Billy Wayne's Christmas Train" and "The Unknown Generation" will be available in early 2016. She has written many southern short stories which have been published in different publications. She is now hosting her own blogtalk radio show Monday through Friday beginning at 6:00am.
