Hidden Hurt Domestic Abuse Information

Unknown, other than prayer.

by Tomera Wineland Rodgers
(Walton On Thames, UK)

I have no clue what got me through those early days, other than prayer. I was living 15,000 miles away from any friends or family. And my abuser kept all my property and money. The police were no support, and one officer even took advantage of my vulnerability! :(

Still, I prayed for the strength every single day. 2 years on, research & counselling. Still very painful, but I would rather have the pain I feel today than the pain I felt then. I remind myself of that everyday.

Beautiful and inspiring to read.

I am 10 days since leaving and although not previously religious - I experienced a very powerful feeling that at my very lowest moments - as in the poem 'footsteps in the sand' - I am being carried through the pain.
