About L.M. Carleton

I’m Linda, an Upstate, New York abuse survivor who blogs for others who have suffered, helping you gain wisdom to overcome adversity and restore your life.

L.M. Carleton, Linda

I’m also a mother and caregiver for the elderly and physically challenged for more than twenty years.

I understand the danger of keeping your abuse a secret—the anguish of living in fear and the burden of shame after losing custody of two children.

I kept painful secrets for years

But the memories resurfaced after an encounter with an abusive, estranged husband on a dating website.

So I created a writing blog and asked God why it seems I must always suffer. He illuminated the darkness with His divine wisdom.

Helping to discern the truth about love, life, relationships, family dynamics, and sexual behavior, allowing me to overcome unhealthy patterns — which I would like to share with you.
