We aren’t even going to pretend we know what that might be like, but we will try to help provide you with some resources and information to help you get over the physical and emotional hurdles and what you need to do in order to make the abuser pay for what they’ve done to you.
As you’ll see in some of our posts on the subject, the abuser can be prosecuted in both civil and criminal court.
