Season 2, Episode 2: Incarcerated but FREE! The Judge said what? What just happened? Life changed in a flash when Monique Pettaway, newly married, found out her husband of just 6 months, was found GUILTY of murder and was going away for life. What’s a girl to do?

She stood by her man for 10 years and then after all appeals were exhausted, he let her go. Now, on her own she wanted to hide behind the smile. Family supported her but the world treated her like SHE was the criminal. His prison was physical, hers MENTAL yet with time she found FREEDOM and now she shares her knowledge and experience with the world, especially women and children. Many of us have something we’re hiding, something we’re ashamed of, something that through no fault of our own keeps us hidden from each other and the world. It’s time to STAND UP & SPEAK UP to change the world. Tim McGuinness, Ph.D., Founder of The Society of Citizens Against Relationship Scams (SCARS) joins the discussion to show how trauma affects each of us differently but there are so many similarities in recovery. #trauma #depression #justicereform #scars #benfotiamine
