Ever since she can remember Becky has been afraid. Growing up in a deeply troubled family, her home was a place of suffering. Behind closed doors she was subjected to cruelty and humiliation at the hands of the one person who should have loved and protected her - Sylvia, her mother. Unbeknown to Becky until adulthood, Sylvia displayed all the signs of being a psychopath, whilst giving the illusion of normalcy to the outside world. Becky grew up feeling worthless, invisible and frightened. Even when she found the courage to cut ties, Sylvia found ways to destroy and control Becky's life with a campaign of abuse, including unwelcome and distressing phone calls, emails and letters. Now, Becky has come to terms with her past and gives a fascinating and gut-wrenching insight into what it's like to live your life with a psychopathic parent.
