Outstanding story, Alex. You wrapped your painful memories and current challenges in words that pulled me in. I can relate to much of what you experienced but in a different way because, well, we are all different and our traumas are more personal than we care to divulge. Thank you for sharing yours. I am inspired to share mine.
