    HAVE YOU EXPERIENCED CHILDHOOD TRAUMA?

    Traumatic childhood takes 20 years off life expectancy / LJWorld.com

    I always knew I was screwed up in many ways. Handicapped in the game of life as it were. I have certainly stepped in the same pile of crap many times giving me plenty of clues. Well, a new study came out last year with information on 17,000 + people taken by the health giant Kaiser Permanente . The Center for Disease Control analyzed the data and came up with some stunning conclusions. It's called the Adverse Childhood Events (ACE) survey. When I read this I couldn't believe it. I was depressed and liberated at the same time. I will place this link on the research forum with some of the insights it gave me, but if you want to read about the survey and take the simple test, check out the link above. My score was a solid 7.

    good luck...........azuldog

    ADog, yes. It's a fact that when we get screwed up early, it takes a toll on us. I don't know the numbers, but a huge percentage of alcoholic women were sexually abused. I don't even know about men! What helps us it to see we are not alone, we are not responsible for our childhood, and that we must begin TODAY being responsible for what WE do. As I've said, heard, had said to me, we become sober for ourselves, no one else. Guilt, blame, and regret will not help us; only self-realization and the desire to live a sober life.
