Isolation and fear have been constant companions for more than 19 years. In addition, living in a small town on the East Coast offers little in the way of community for domestic violence survivors. Giving voice to recovery in a way that will bring healing to others as well as myself is a big part of the reason I am here sharing with you.
If you or someone you know is a victim of domestic violence, please visit www.nomore.org for a list of domestic violence centers specific to your location. You can also contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline at www.hotline.org or call 1-800-799-SAFE (7233). If you feel you are in immediate danger contact your local law enforcement by calling 911.
