We want people to know that help is out there and you can have a healthy, happy life after experiencing domestic or sexual abuse. We know that sometimes it helps to know that others have had experiences similar to yours and have survived and even thrived! We invite you to submit your story, so that others might be encouraged to reach out for help. While we appreciate all stories that are submitted, we may not be able to publish all of them. If we publish your story, it will be edited for grammar, spelling and may be shortened in length. Your privacy is important to us, so we will be changing the names and locations used in your story.
