My name is Norma Zaugg, In 2013 I found myself in a counselors office lost and broken. I was a shell of a person, my identity nearly gone. The months that followed would be the hardest of my life. As I came out of the shadows I discovered that my husband of 19 years was a sex addict. This is the story of my fight through betrayal, codependancy, divorce and my ongoing trauma. I will survive....I get to write the ending of my story and I am determined that it will be beautiful.
