Description
Point Last Seen is an intensely personal work. This is a true story of one woman's odyssey through three complex issues of childhood sexual abuse, domestic violence and mental illness. All too often we hear or read horrific stories of children being abducted by pedophiles and shudder at the thought of what these innocent victims must have experienced. Rarely, if ever, do we hear how the terrifying experiences affect these victims as they journey through their lives. Ricky Hunter tells her story of being abducted at age five and how this terrifying ordeal shaped her life from childhood through to early womanhood and beyond. Feelings of powerlessness, deadness, states of depression and post traumatic stress all placed Ricky in a precarious and vulnerable position. All too often we hear or read stories of domestic violence, vicious physical, mental and emotional attacks on defenseless women and children and shudder at the thought of what these victims must endure during and after their horrendous ordeal. Rarely, if ever, do we hear anything about how these victims survive their traumatic experiences. How do they cope with their day to day lives? How deep do their scars run? How fierce are their recurring images? Just what does the future hold? Here Ricky Hunter tells her unabridged story. Her seemingly endless struggle to gain insight into how to process the images and emotions tied in with the horrifying events that happened to her are paying off. Having the tools to handle a melange of personal conundrums, in the face of overwhelming odds has enabled Ricky to gain control of her life. Ricky's success in taking back her life one day at a time started with coming out of denial and facing her abuse issues head-on. For one person to survive such traumatic events and come out the other side is testimony to the human spirit.
About the author
I want other women to know that they can find the courage to step out of denial, choosing feeling instead of a life of numbness by facing the truth of their abuse and confronting the demons in their heads. We can skill ourselves in techniques of self empowerment and lead calmer and more mindful lives by facing our deepest fears and tackling them head on. We can move past our emotional scars and start to feel again. It is not a fight for the fainthearted. It takes enormous courage and stamina and assistance from a much higher source than us. I believe that true courage becomes a searchlight inside of us for the rest of our lives. Each woman's path is different and each one has a valuable message. My way of achieving empowerment may not be yours and it isn't the only way. Not everyone could do what I chose to do. Other women fight their personal battles in their own unique way. If I can touch one person's heart and move one person to fight their feelings of worthlessness and powerlessness, my job has been done. But you can't fight it alone. I had a support team of loving friends, a fantastic doctor and a skilled therapist to help me with my expedition. I also received assistance from my Heavenly Father, my True North. On your journey, I wish you success, I wish you courage but most of all I wish you peace.
