Breese, IL Woman Reaches Out to Dr. Phil!!!

Patricia “Tricia” McKnight is a survivor of her own true horror story and lived that pattern of programmed family violence. She is now an Author/Advocate/Survivor, searching for a way to help her children and grandchildren heal and move forward to be healthy functioning adults; breaking the cycle of trained acceptance of family violence and dysfunction.

She is well aware of how severe this violence can be and what detrimental effects it leaves on our children. In the attached video you will hear Tricia beg for the help of Dr. Phil as she believes this is her last hope of helping her family to heal and move forward.

“There is nothing a loving mother won’t do for her children. This is my plea for Dr. Phil to help me break the cycle of dysfunction that has broken the bond of my family.”

Tricia has been using her voice, her story, wherever and however possible for the past two years. The non-profit organization, Dreamcatchers for Abused Children, has brought her onboard their team of highly devoted advocates, volunteers, national & celebrity spokespersons; where she is now the Exec. Director & Host of the Dreamcatchers Talk Radio. She is also a devoted advocate within her community who offers help and has created a bond with local centers to help victims of this family violence.

Tricia is now asking society to understand the “trained” behaviors of Child Abuse Survivors who are now parents and struggling to break this acceptance; knowing the problems that can grow from their own abuse. Many single mother’s live this pattern because they are truly programmed and believe they cannot function or survive on their own. This allows the cycle of abuse, sexual assault, control and battery to continue within our households.

“My children knew only the alcoholic brutal dysfunction in their young lives and I could only provide so much positive influence, not being able to realize the deep wounds that still darkened my sense of well-being.”

Please understand how desperate I must be to help my children recover and flourish in their lives. If I can break the dysfunction within my family, then as a society we can all make the effort to help each other. We can all step forward and be the extended arm of help to guide others to the proper resources so that all members of the household can heal.

Remember; Family Violence, Sexual Abuse of Children, Severe Control and Battery; these will leave an impact on each family member whether they are directly involved or not. These acts grow as veins within a family and will touch the lives of everyone. We must talk openly about what is going on and how we can help each other in this mission to end the cycle; giving our children the opportunity to live truly free and develop as the positive spirits intended.

Published by @ButterflyTrish

I am a survivor of over thirty years trapped inside the silence and brutality of Family Crimes, Child Sex Trafficking, and a life lived pattern of tolerance for over 30 years in almost murderous relationships. In Feb. 2011 I chose to publish the truth about what happened in our home, the community around me, and the learned patterns of self-hatred and tolerance which became such a huge factor in my life. My life today was built through publishing 'My Justice'. I never would felt worthy of life, breathing, love & respect with first healing myself. There were many things the traits and tragedies that influenced my life seemed to control everything inside me and it was nothing but sadness and fake emotions. Only by facing the horrors I went through, the choices I made as a woman & mother, then relating to the greatest guilt I have; how the trauma behavior has affected my children's lives. It's my hope to help others get through their battles, regardless of the type of trauma because when we hurt our lives are forever changed. This graphic, violent memoir is NOT SUGGESTED FOR ANYONE UNDER 14 years of age. It discusses the permanently wounding life and the cycle of destruction that held me in expecting/tolerating ridicule and violence in my adult relationships. This truth was published to inspire others to take an in-depth look at their life and behaviors as a result of their past. Connect the dots of your rebuilding in understanding the pattern of adult choices in coping addictions, parenting, and partners; even affecting our careers and self-sustainable life. I'm so honored to have 'My Justice' used at the collegiate level for psychology classes, upcoming therapists and educators. Today my life is very blessed. I'm finally safe, finally truly loved, finally feeling the magic of what life is supposed to be like. My greatest power only began to show when I first made the choice to end the violent relationships and behaviors around my children; to give them something better, something SAFE!! In choosing to share my own story, I've also gone that serious extra step to educate myself through years of research, attending training opportunity, and collaborating with other advocate resources, abuse, sexual harm, and the experts digging deep to recreate help and healing. I've chosen to use my past as a way to inspire a greater good; hopefully somehow change the cycle of tragedy in our homes so that we empower our kids to live a more positive path. The best education we can give, is a survivor of traumatic experiences who can use what they felt then and what they wish they would have had available; those who could have and should have said something. We can change things for our life today, but best of all in healing our wounds, we give communities a supportive working strategy in assisting the people in our lives. One step at a time, one caring soul at a time, we can give them a path to changing our human society as a whole. This is a tell all, which was written in the midst of my third nervous breakdown as I struggled to put all my distorted pieces back together, help my children understand how the violence I tolerated against me invaded their emotional well-being. My children have always been my world, but my behaviors, lack of healthy parenting and life skills, and an inability to remain stable has caused another generation of suffering for my grandchildren. This is a very difficult thing to watch and the continued tragedies that seem to keep affecting the choices in my family. Writing this book was only the beginning of trying to release all that has haunted me for so many years. I have finally removed his thick, cruel, coal stained hand which trapped me in fear for decades. Those hands and his evil, her housemaid and caregiver; they created a slave and that slave submitted to horrific and brutal attacks but always felt it was her burden to bare. I lived with that hand holding me down to terrorize and steal away my voice, holding me captive in the dysfunction of the aftermath and casting a shadow of darkness on everything good in my life. Living in the true spirit of freedom, I have now become a strong advocate against the life cycle of human destruction. We cannot live stuck in the tragedy of hardships and pain. Life is meant to be lived, to be enjoyed, to see what you can do and what you can achieve, to find out what is important to you. We all become adults. We all have a burden to bare. Stand up and keep moving, keep living, keep dreaming. You have two choices in recreating and rebuilding yourself. Do you stay stuck in the dark shadows of your past? Do you dig deep and find that spirit that kept you alive so that you could become the proud, strong, capable, resilient, kind human being ? Which do you choose and how will that choice affect your children and theirs? We can be supportive, provide resources and suggestions for help so that families suffering with addiction or past trauma themselves can find a recovery balance to rebuild their family in a more positive life pattern. We will recover, we will rebuild, we will conquer the pains of yesterday to live in the true sense of life, freedom and safety today.
