In my case I went through all three and have become a bit of an advocate to try and educate people.
Well, it's time to fight I'm no longer afraid to dream. One storm after another chases me, Setback after setback. I stayed in a women's shelter for a couple of months and wrote the poem upon my leaving it.
It's a funny thing though I'm a whole lot stronger than I once was. In the waking rays of dawn I am rediscovering who I am. I'm taking my power back You'll never hurt me again. Sadly, it is men, women and children who go through this. My life is definitely on an upswing as it was not going to get much worse than it was other than for me to die.
I saw women with several children in the shelter while I was there.
I have also spoken to many men who have gone through some pretty horrific situations themselves.
I have heard horror stories over the last year or so.
