Mama Harmony,

Thank you so much for your kind words, for your understanding, and for your advice. I wish you could know just how much I needed to hear about Practicing HALT - I'm trying so hard, but to read your words helped snap me back to reality.

I have struggled greatly with how to live my life while this continues to go on

Isla, just a quick FYI. There is NO "stereotypical" victim. We come from all ethnicities, backgrounds, socio-economic strati, educational levels, but we are all typical in one respect - we have been abused. I sincerely hope the link wish was able to provide to you will be more helpful than what you've encountered so far. And also FYI, the confidentiality laws covering victims of abuse SHOULD protect you against that agency contacting any others about you. If that is not the case, ask them about state standards and confidentiality laws.
