Recognizing and Dealing with Domestic Abuse: iVillage Community

When I started posting here in October of 2002, I was a demoralized shell of a person. Through posting, reading and participating in helping others, I was able to build and regain parts of myself -- most importantly my strength. I am proud to say that I have moved into another new phase of my life now. I've met the most amazing guy, who is now my boyfriend. He knows my story -- all of it. He knows it will take time on my part, but wants to be there through it.
