Not only does life give us a continuous learning experience, but experience, to be of real use, has to go hand in hand with one’s memory.
Everyone has some wounds that never appear on the body but have deep imprints on the soul, injuries that are more intense and hurtful than everything that bleeds.
My name is Debbie. I am a native New Yorker, a married mother of two beautiful children, and a loving grandmother to one. Since childhood, I have been subjected to hatred, mental and physical abuse, and a hostile relationship with my parents. I had witnessed my father’s abusive relationship with my mother, which affected me in so many ways.
But life goes on and on. In my entire life, I have seen so many colors of friendship, betrayal, and revenge from the people I loved the most. Not only just my parents, but I had also been in an abusive relationship that made feel sick to my stomach and threw me into a deep deeper. My suffering continues, even after the birth of my first baby girl Bianca. My so-called husband Paul made my life traumatic by cheating on me not just once but several times before and after marriage.
My life is full of traumas, troubles, and sorrows! Through this book, I would like to discuss the grief of all the women who also successfully survived their abusive relationships.
In the first chapter, I discussed the marital relationship between my mom and dad and how it affected me adversely. Moreover, I have also discussed how my dad punished me mentally and physically.
We moved to our grandparents’ house. My grandpa was a superhero and had struggled a lot in his life. In this chapter, I discussed the events in 1985, my life at my maternal grandpa’s home, school bullying, and my mother and sister’s behavior towards me.
In this chapter, I have discussed my life after I was diagnosed with lymphadenitis abusive dad’s visit, my dad’s visit to the hospital, my birthday and thanksgiving celebrations there, while living at the hospital.
In this chapter, I discussed how my sister used to abuse me after coming back from the hospital, my dad cooking my beloved rabbits, and his torturous behavior towards me.
I would like to dedicate this book to all the women who have been bearing domestic abuse. I just wanted to say to you guys that you are not alone.
In “You Can’t Make This Sh*t Up,” I have tried to mention all the traumatic experiences of my life. From the day I was born, I have always suffered in one way or another. Since childhood, my parents, their toxic relationship, and my sister’s abusive behavior towards me had stabbed my soul in so many ways. I expected fate to be a little fair with me as I grew up, but destiny had written something else for me. First, Mike’s betrayal, Gio’s physical abuse, then Paul’s jealousy, extramarital affairs, and his dirty deeds had thrown me into the misty sea of depression. Then, after Bianca’s birth, I thought that things might go right this time, but Dr. Quack’s crazy stalking and addictive medicines had turned my life upside down.
