Hi my name is leslie ann
for 3 years i was in a violent relationship i had no one to turn to or ask for help no friends or family, i finally got the strength to rebuild and start my life when i was 20 weeks pregnant and my ex parter kicked me to the ground and broke 4 of my fingers. I knew i could Not bring my daughter into this. This is what it took for myself to finally speak out about the years i had suffered, i broke down in work to a work colleuge when asked about my fingers, It was then i realised i can tell this story, i moved in with her while trying to get a more permanent home residance for me and my unborn child it brought alot of stress and depression along the way with worry of being a single mum with no where to stay but day by day a stayed strong to bring my daughter into this world, i found a place to stay and my work collegues all chipped in to help me get everthjng sorted for when my daughter arriving, though i had gotten away from my abusive and violent relationship and spoke out about it all, he was still beinging my life down as he had ran up 18000 of debt in my name so though he isnt in my life physically he is still in it every day mentally as i work to pay off his debt in my name. I would love to wave a magic wand and it would all disappear but in life that doesnt happen, i have read and heard so many domestic abuse storys and every story is an inspiration of someone who has came out the other side stronger and all because they have finally spoke out, but there is so many people male and female still sitting in the shadows and a wont to make more people come forward and help as many people as i coupe with the aftermath of a violent and domestic relationship male and female.
