About Me

People have asked me “Why do you care?” And my answer is, I care because I have been there. I have been abused for most of my life. I thought I was the only one to go through a lot of the things my abusers did to me. The feeling of relief when I found out I was not alone was indescribable. I then wondered how many others are out there, also feeling alone. And I knew I had to do something. So I became involved in multiple projects on Facebook, helping support survivors and victims, encouraging them that there is hope and healing. Life after abuse is possible.

I am in my early thirties, and have been writing about abuse for fifteen years. At first, I wrote about only my experiences, trying to cope with it in the only way available to me as a teenager. Now, I write about more than just my experiences. I write about the facts of abuse. I write about what others have been through. I write about the effects abuse has on lives, even after getting out.

These are some of the topics you can expect to see covered here: how to support people, as well as causes; different aspects of mental health as impacted by abuse; stories about victims and survivors who have made the news due to their abuse, as well as shelters and events benefiting victims and survivors; culture contributions, including addressing questions like “What does our culture do to contribute to the problem of abuse?” “What can we change?” “Where do we start?”;  famous survivors;  facts and definitions, starting with the different types of abuse, and moving on to discuss different facts; answering questions like “What are the current numbers where abuse is concerned?” “How many deaths are attributed to abuse?” and more, regarding the numbers surrounding abuse, rape, and sexual assault.
