excerpt "As you can see in my story so far my autistic brain protected me from abuse and helped me to function. Also with the "Gift of Mental Illness" and the support groups I was able to leave an abusive husband. I think most people who hear about a woman in my situation you will feel sorry for me but my story is not over yet. I have more to tell. At the moment, I have left my husband of 19 years, have one child with me, and I am starting over. It will be a rough few years but everyone in town is telling me how well I look. I do look good because I have just left "Hell" and the only ways is "UP!!!"
