Living in Fear is a Trap

When I look back over my life of 52 years, one thing stands out the most. I’ve spent a good share of my life “living in fear.”

I lived in fear of an abusive husband finding me. In fear of judgment having run away, leaving my two children behind. And fear of what other’s thought about me. In other words “fear” consumed my thoughts and held me captive in darkness.

Helen contracted an illness at 19 months old, described by doctors as “acute congestion of the stomach and the brain,” which might have been scarlet fever or meningitis. The illness left Helen both deaf and blind.

She could see and hear before the illness, and after the sickness, and could communicate somewhat with Martha Washington, the six-year-old daughter of the family cook. And by the age of seven, she had more than 60 signs to talk with her family.
