My Dog Griffin: My Not-So Secret Strategy for Getting Through the Sandusky Trial

I find summers, and in particular the month of June, challenging for me. My energy level goes down and everything seems a little harder. I suspect a lot of that comes from the memories of being abused during the summer months when I was growing up. My birthday falls at the end of June and with it come the anniversary dates of some of the worst abuse I suffered at the hands of my father and my brothers. So its no surprise that I often feel depressed and even more easily triggered in the summer and in particular in June.
