is physical or if it full blown rape.
I wanted to post some links that have very helpful information.
http://www.hiddenhurt.co.uk/- This site has a lot of personal stories as well as good information.
Because of my past and because this month is Domestic Violence Awareness month, I ordered the Empowerment Circle of Support necklace from Avon.
Here's some links to more information about the necklace and the program.
Do something to support survivors of domestic violence and programs making attempts to end it. Also educate yourself and your loved ones. When I was being abused no one around me understood or took what I was going through seriously. It was a very lonely place to be and the lack of support made it even harder to get out. 1 in 3 women experiences violence so for your own sake and for the sake of the people you care about, educate yourself. Everyone is a potential victim.
