Rosie was turned out not by just some pimp off the street - but by her own husband. When her parents found out they were shocked -but then figured out the money wasn't so bad after all. She built her way up from turning tricks on the streets and out of casinos into the owner of her own massage parlor so big at one time she had 40 women working under her. Her daughter saw the fast living lifestyle growing up and wanted it for herself. She told her mom that she "was going to do it anyway you might as well teach me the ropes so I'll be safe". Actually wanting to protect her daughter from the dangers she'd find on the streets working as an "outlaw" - this mother taught her own daughter the ropes about prostitution. They even went on calls together sometimes. Men pay extra for that sort of thing. When her mother died from cancer - pain medication was left laying around. The daughter had been using drugs by that time pretty heavy. Next thing anyone knows the daughter is found dead from an overdose. Accidental? Who knows? Having a complete mental breakdown from the guilt she was hit with - this woman reached out to Sex Workers Anonymous after being released from the psychiatric hospital. Taking months to trust us just to tell us what happened - she finally opened up about carrying baggage that will never go away. She was even now using drugs to cope with the death of her daughter due to drugs. Now Rose is "clean and sober" as well as having almost two years out of the sex industry entirely. She has a teenage son and a young daughter in her 20's still surviving she's now there for. The years of lugging massage tables have caught up with her where she's now on disability so she can go through surgery and pain management to repair her feet and back from all the "wear and tear".
