Nidia Valadez candidly discusses with host Janie Terrazas the childhood trauma she endured at the hands of her family.  This trauma led to suppressed shame and led to her drinking as a way to cope with her severe anxiety attacks. The trauma also impacted her ability to trust others. Nidia shares “If you don’t pay attention to the signs you won’t have a fulfilling life.”
