Within the Gray - Surviving Sexual and Physical Abuse

"Mommy I want a new daddy", that's what Jenna Ashlyn's young daughter told her when she was tucking her into bed one night. Jenny joins me to talk about her sexual abuse throughout her childhood beginning at 4 years old. She lived on  a farm in Ohio and the teenage farm hands along with the preacher’s son would assault her.

She wrote the books "Within the Gray" and "Sheila’s men". Which chronical her life experiences. She later remarried someone who also abused her physically and sexually. Listen to her story which includes her battles with PTSD and her road to recovery.

Robert Adleman

I am a 64-year-old male with ADHD, OCD, severe depression, severe  anxiety, and dyslexia. I struggled for 40 years working in the high-pressured Information technology field. Even though it was good money, I didn't have much luck in the financial department.
In 1991, at the age of 33, was when the severe anxiety attack occurred, and the support system was not there to handle it. So, I checked myself in to a mental hospital in Piscataway, NJ. That started my long road to recovery. After the attack, I was severely depressed and anxious for 6 months. This experience is detailed in episode four "Beating Severe Anxiety/Depression".
