In her years in Port Charles, Elizabeth has suffered through bad
relationships and numerous medical mishaps, among other things. As a
teenager she dealt with every womanís worst nightmare when she was raped
in a park on the way home from a school dance. The rape changed
Elizabeth and forced her to deal with serious emotional issues. Some
closure was finally found when she learned the identity of her rapist

struck by a hit and run driver to having a husband who poisoned her,
Elizabeth has fought through it all. One would think that mishaps like
