When you decide you have had enough and it is time to leave DON’T BE AFRAID to let you friends and family know about the abuse. It is NOT your fault. Your friends and family should understand and help you. In my case however, my abuser made sure that no one would believe me so I had to find a shelter. That is one of the purposes of this blog. I will do my best to find the most reputable shelters around the U.S. to help you out.
