  • I left my man after being abused in everyway.

    I was pregnant and I had a 2 year old. The system helped me but I also helped my self. I am now independent and will work hard to stay that way.

  • i was sexually abused as a child, told from a young age that I would never amount to anything, that i was worthless. My father beat me with a gunrod till I had welts on my back, i watched my brother get run over by a truck when i was 14yrs old, I then stopped caring about life. I got into drugs, slept around, didn't care what I did to myself or how I represented myself. Dropped out of highschool, got pregnant and married. My ex was also an abusive man, told me I was worthless and hit me. After I was put in a psycho ward for trying to kill myself at the age of 23, my world changed. I realized I could hold on to the pain of my life and let it destroy me or I could change my life to what I wanted. I divorced my husband, told bad friends to fk off. Then i quit doing drugs, got my GED, got my Stna, and now I am in college for nursing. I'm also now engaged to a wonderful man who treats me like a queen...because I deserve the BEST!!!

  • My dad was an abusive alcoholic who used to abuse me and my mother. He tried to kill me when I was 15. I moved in with my grandma and was a wild child. You name it I did it. I graduated high school started college while engaged to a suicidal control freak. I didn't like my major dropped out after 2 years. Met my DH (he's amazing) had my DS in May of this year and have a job I love. I'm going back to school in the fall. I'm thankful for all experiences good and bad.
