Doctored
The True Story of Abuse and Survival
by Polly A. Magena

This is a shocking true story about a woman surviving life-long abuse, eventually leading to the kidnap of her two small children by their father. They never came home. Her former partner launched a terrible campaign of revenge, isolating her with no family support and a damaged reputation.

Alone and traumatized, Polly turned to her doctor for help but he exploited her vulnerability, sexually abusing her secretly over a two year period. Later she was almost blacklisted following the quick expulsion from two doctors' patient lists for surviving Dr X's misconduct. Hospital social workers supported custody to her ex, knowing of his domestic abuse, with dire consequences.

Fighting back, Polly attended the medical court but they cleared him to return to work. After the cover-up, she lost her career and her home as well as her children as the toxic fall-out almost destroyed her life. Using her spirituality and love for her children and nature, she escaped the place of abuse to become an adventurer, writer and poet.

Despite her ex partner's cruel tactics to destroy the relationship with her children, she survived, kept her faith, started singing and finally reclaimed the once lost role of mother. Today, Polly is a proud grandmother of several beautiful children: the buds in the rose garden over the wall.

Honest, brutal, and ultimately, uplifting. This woman's story is a tribute to the strength of faith, both in being true to herself and also in battling almost insurmountable odds to keep the role of mother (and grandmother) hers. Memorable read.
