Isabel Pummill of Hillsboro, OH is a survivor of intimate partner violence. In May, she found out that she was pregnant and that her abusive ex-boyfriend was the father. He is thankfully no longer in the picture, but this leaves Isabel with little to no support. She is without siblings or friends, and at the moment, her parents are not speaking to her.

scream so that one day a hundred years from now another sister will not have to dry her tears wondering where in history she lost her voice.
Initially, I responded to my EDS and Pots Diagnoses with relief. Many blood tests had come back normal, so I felt validated when something was actually wrong.

Attention lovers of Poetry!!
Skeleton Trees is one of the most powerful collections of poetry I’ve ever read. TJ articulates the vulnerability of longing and the constant heartbreak that comes with emotional abuse. Her authenticity shines through the rawness of her emotions. I’m especially grateful to the author because during one of my darkest times, her words inspired me to write about my own traumatic experiences. As cliché as it may sound, I remember I read it all in one sitting because I just couldn’t put it down. Do yourself a favor and check it out on Amazon!

“Because men’s sexual attention is always supposed to be flattering. Regardless of whether or not those feelings are reciprocated.”
Even when this behavior is meant to be seen as creepy or wrong, the people behind the camera still take the opportunity to sexualize the female characters. This is an issue with many depictions of rape and sexual assault as well. Even if the male character is the villain or portrayed as evil, the violence is depicted in a way that still allows for the titillation of the viewer.

They would never give up their hopes and dreams to appease others. They go out and get what they want and everything else in their lives must… Continue reading Make The Decision To End The Cycle

Gaslighting is the act of manipulation using psychological efforts to make a person question their own sanity and reality. The behavior ranges from toxic communication to severe emotional abuse, depending on how frequent it is. It is a tactic used by abusers, control freaks AND ordinary people.
