A WORD ABOUT DOMESTIC ABUSE:

Domestic Abuse can happen to anyone at anytime. It is a systematic pattern of coercive behavior for the sole purpose of manipulating a partner in an intimate relationship. Domestic abuse can take many forms : Verbal, Emotional, Financial, Sexual, Physical, or Psychological control.
There are many resources and organizations out there to help women of abuse. These are some of the agencies that helped me.
