I have been reading posts from other domestic violence survivors in support groups. I see myself in so many of the stories I read.

Secrets and my fear

By |July 22nd, 2019|Family|0 Comments

That word can be both negative and positive when it is in our lives. For me it means the struggle of the things I have seen and can’t speak on out of the fear of the parties involved coming after me and my kids. I struggle with it daily. I have this part of […]
