About Mr. Budinsky.

My life has been challenging at best. I've dealt with addiction, shattered relationships, abandoned careers. I've been homeless, shot at, broken and disgusted. Only this last year have I "come out of hiding" so to speak. I have been ashamed of something and running my entire life. I never knew what it was. Now I know. I am a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and it has profoundly affected my life.

I was violated by three family members, a family friend, a neighbor, two local businessmen, a serial pedophile, a twenty-one year old women who enjoyed having a fifteen year old 'boy toy', and a psychiatrist. I began acting out and exhibiting signs when I was around ten, so this man was chosen to help me. He was a prominent member of our community as well as the church I was brought up in. He "took care" of all us young acolytes. Surely he could be trusted. He couldn’t.

I knew I was broken, troubled, and hopelessly addicted and entered recovery for that in 1976 at the age of twenty-six. My healing, spiritual journey began then. I worked diligently over the years in twelve step programs, therapy, inner child work, meditation, religion, ad infinitum. Suffice it to say that if there was anything available which I thought would be healing and enriching, I grabbed onto it. Yet I would periodically self destruct, typically when it appeared that I was doing my best.

Please join us and share the info.

Thank you Mr. Budinsky for taking the time to be our guest.
