The Hospital Letters

In the fall of 1993, I was 23 years old and suffering from anorexia as a result of the abuse. I entered River Oaks Hospital in Harahan, Louisiana. At 5'8" and just under 100 pounds, the doctors were concerned I might not survive. During my stay my father wrote me letters, apparently to try and accept some responsibility for his actions. The letters  ended up making my condition worse, so the doctors kept further letters from him away from me until I checked out. These letters present a rare glimpse into the mind and thought processes of a child molester. I wanted to present these letters and have them out there, to be transparent about it so that people would focus on my message and not whether or not I was telling the truth.
