Angela Shelton

Below are three links that I urge you all to take a look at! This woman is GREAT! Take a few minutes and go through her site and blogs. On there you will see information about the REPORT IT campaign that is going to take place in April....look for that, then go and find your state area and help out if you can, even if all you do is report the sexual abuse you have suffered. We all deserve to be heard and this is a way for the entire US to hear us all!

The Guilt of the Abused - Pathologizing the Victim by Sam Vaknin

This article gives very good insight into why and how DV Victims are further victimized by nearly everyone they come in contact with after their abuse। This is a long read but packed with many truths, and well worth the time. You will see that you are not alone, you are not going crazy, and will know that there are those out there that do "get it". You will also see why this feels like such an up hill battle to you and why most of the "good" people in society will either ignore your plight or make matters worse even when attempting to help. Please use this information as a means to pull yourself up from the "norm" to re-educate yourself and then to start re-educating those around you; in order to grow and heal!
