I am touched by your story - to have the strength to start over and begin the road to healing your physical and emotion wounds. I think that you will find this community to be supportive and eager to listen and well as offer solutions along the way.

We have some members here in particular who I suggest reaching out to for friendship and support based on their own experiences in domestic abuse and their beautiful characters.
