Just so you know, I only permit first names and initials. I even change other names within the story to an initial or a letter followed by dashes (i.e. A---). In this way, your privacy is secure. So you will remain anonymous.

And before you say that sharing won't help others, think again. When you tell others about how you went from hurting to healing, it inspires them to walk their own path.

Many of the visitors to this site have already shared their story. They also look for inspiration on this page.

Dear Darlene,

I posted my feelings on your site, regarding the emotional as well as physical abuse that I have endured through out my almost twenty one years. I liked your site, because it was informative, helpful, authentic and realistic. Most of all, it has a broad range of areas.

You seem like you are the kind of person that is vibrant and has a warm and intuitive presence. May G-d bless you and bestow you with healing and the continued ability to heal others. May G-d heal all those and comfort and wipe away the visible and invisible pain of any adult, child or infant enduring any kind of pain.

Take care.
