About the Author

I have been in receipt of trauma counselling since 1999 on a daily basis,at times speaking till the early hours of the morning.Support from my trauma Counsellor helps me to come to terms with accepting that what has happened to me cannot now be changed. I cannot ever forgive those who had a vicarious liability to look after me and failed. As a result of being locked away for some years all because we were poor has brought certain limitations to my day to day life. Writing is a form of therapy and allows me to be free to be the person that I want to be, and should have been my birthright. Through writing I can reach out to others who may have had such an unfortunate experience as myself . Daily flashbacks can be upsetting and I fill my life with things to do so as to block them out. Day to day life can be exhausting and coping mechanisms that I learnt in order to survive have not helped me in the outside world. God help all fellow survivors and perhaps one day Ireland will accept the terrible price we paid. Shame on all you right thinking residents in Ireland to allow the government and Catholic Church to ignore harm done to me and many others who are either dead or too ill to tell their story. Thanks to Chipmunkapublishing I have been able to confront my demons and a Big Thank you to Reatha my trauma counsellor without her I would not be here today writing about my stolen life.

Book Extract

If your child suffers from loss of appetite
And it looks like you are in defeat
Encourage the child to drink lots
Don’t force your child to eat
Children develop fads and fancies
It can be worrying indeed
Cut out sweet and salty snacks
And bags of crisps and sweets
Your child should get back his appetite
Without these so called ‘treats’
Cut out caffeine found in soft drinks
It causes the heart to race
With all this good advice there is
Keep up a steady pace
If all this fails take your child to the G.P
He will know you have done your best
Recovery will be the end result hopefully
Older people have the same problems at times
They loose their sense of taste and smell
Can be on medication and loose their appetite as well
Vary the food, colour, and temperature
It will give better sleep at night
