Why Me? Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
In the blink of an eye, Mom ran up behind me and pushed me into the fence. Instinctively, I reached out my arms to stop my fall and ended up grabbing the live fence. My hands clamped around the thin wires, and my body collapsed to the ground as the electricity coursed through it. I opened my eyes and saw my mother standing over me with the strangest smile on her face. "Oh, my God, I’m going to die!" I thought in panic.
Imagine never being able to close your eyes and remember the feel of your mother’s arms wrapped around you. Now imagine closing your eyes and remembering your mother’s tears splashing down on your face as she is on top of you, crying as she is trying to choke you to death. My mother left me these memories and many more during my traumatic childhood. After many years of struggling with trying to understand "Why me?" I took back control of my life and started saying, "It was me, now what am I going to do?"
The answer is my book, "Why Me?" It is my childhood journey through the terrors of physical and mental abuse from first grade until the day I moved out. It is my way of letting the world know what was really going on behind closed doors.

but I finished it, in one day and Im so glad I did. My heart is at peace. Not because i wanted someone to hurt like I did but that someone spoke up for me when I felt that I didn't have a voice even at 48 years old. I can't change my mom and I haven't seen my mom in 6 years. but I walked away from her and I will always have that to hold on to.. I was in control for once and she can't ever hurt me again. My kids will never know her or see a picture of her I find great satisfaction in knowing that Im nothing NOTHING like my mom...
My favorite part she included was her own epilogue letting the readers know how she's doing and where her head is at. I was thrilled to see a happy ending for her.
I even turned to riding horses to escape going home.
I was the last one born and I was the "mistake".
Hopefully teachers will be a bit more
proactive, if they notice wuthdrawn behavior, bruises or odd stories about how injuries occurred.
I had a 3rd grade teacher call DCF 5 times, and they just kept telling my mother to "cut it out."
Then she beat the daylights out of me with a rolling pin.
To this day neurosurgeons have asked, "what happened to you when you were little?"
Perfect title for a very sad but true experience.
Parents like this need to go to JAIL for life.

When Sarah succeeded in life, got her degree, her husband and child I punched the air shouted, "Well done Sarah"; then I cried a myriad of tears.
Tears for Sarah and for myself and all of the other SURVIVORS out there. I wish you all future happiness and am thankful for the courage Sarah showed in sharing her story and giving us hope. Whew.
But then you see so many tragedies in the news and as much as you don't want to believe, it is sadly a fact of life that these horrific stories keep occurring.
It is up to us as neighbours and as a community not to turn the other cheek but be there to protect our children.
The story is absolutely heart breaking and I can only hope that Sarah can look to the future with hope of a happy ending to her story with her husband and her children. Its a compelling story to read, i couldn't put it down until the end, I so wanted there to be a happy ending! May God bless you and heal you!
