Tonight's special guest is Michael Caruso from Ft Lauderdale, Florida, who was sexually abused from 4 to 11 years old by several men where he grew up, Newark, New Jersey. "My father was gone by age 2 (heroin addict) my mom had me at 19 and didn't want a child," Michael says. "There was no love or affection in the family. I was beaten till I bled with wood spoons by my mother, and my grandpa beat me as well. My aunt helped raise me and she was like a best friend. I was rewarded like a dog. I developed a sexual addiction from the early exposure to sex at such a young age. I still have a sexual addiction today that could hurt people if I don’t remain aware of that trauma.” He shares that his grandfather's side of the family practiced witchcraft and worshipped Satan, “I have been haunted by evil since birth. My experiences with the spirit world baffles me even today. I would see spirits before I could speak. My aunt would change my diaper and I would point behind her. She would look and there they were. A lot of creepy things happened then and still do today.” Struggling to find an identity, Michael found his home with the stoners. He got high at the age of 14 and was expelled for fighting by the age of 15. Michael shares, “My mother and I became closer when I was 18. We were only 19 years apart. She was taken from me when I was 19 [murdered]. This character that I created emerged further when I was 21. I became a chiseled very good-looking man and I used that power to get what I wanted.” Although there was much darkness attached to him and around him, Michael had a Praying grandmother. She still has her lips to God’s ear saying, “Protect him. He’s going to do great things”.
