New Blog Alert – Growing Up Chaotic – http://www.growingupchaotic.wordpress.com

Dawn – what’s this – Growing up Chaotic all about?

I was raised in a home that was drenched in dysfunction. All 4 of my parents abused alcohol and as a result A LOT of physical, emotional and mental abuse was dumped on my lap.

Today, I am very proud to EXCLAIM that I have survived my upbringing and have gone on to thrive in my life.

I hope to help others with similar experiences do the same by providing – Inspiration, Hope and Guidance.
