Ann Toscano spent her childhood believing she was sick - physically and mentally, due to a mother with Munchausen By Proxy. Her traumatic childhood continued with sexual abuse and extreme psychological abuse. Now having overcome cervical cancer and still suffering from Lupus, endometriosis, inter cranial hypertension and mental health issues Ann has created a space for others with Bent But Not Breaking. She shares her highs and her lows with a raw intensity that is sometimes heart breaking but always inspiring.
Some of the content in this episode is hard to hear - but worth it to see how powerful we ALL are in overcoming our trauma and using our power through healing - to help others. You can find Ann on Instagram - @bentbutnotbreaking and facebook - BentButNotBreaking. At the end of this episode Ann reads an original poetry piece that left me in tears - well worth the listen
