Hi there, I just thought i would stop by and introduce myself. I am Shaz. I am a 25 yr old single mum to 5 yr old Nichole. We live in Adelaide SA, Australia. I have been a single mum for just over a year. I left an abusive man and i must say it's the best and hardest thing i have ever done. I didn't have much support when i left him but am building up my support network. I have just started a group for other's in my situation if you are interested the link is http://apps.facebook.com/circleofmoms/gr... I hope to make this a haven for sufferer's ad survivors of DV, a place for them to come, get advice, chat and make new and valuable friends. I do hope to see you there.



I would like to touch base with others who have been or are still in abusive relationships. My ex is still controlling and abusing me.....I need help!



Shaz xx

hi sharon,it took lots of courage for me to press charges and see it into court,i suffered domestic violence for 3yrs,i am now a survivor,you really need to get a lawyer who can have injunctions put on this guy,he can still be done for dv even without living in the same home.in england the police have only bee taking this subject serious for a couple of years,its the justice system that let me down,he got 18 months suspended and pay 57 pounds damages for breaking my nose.one day i hope what goes around comes around and he gets a clobbering back.keep strong you too will be a survivor.donna xxxxxxxxx

Real men dont hurt the ones they love!!! Life will be much better when you have a peace of mind. It will be hard at the beginning but things will get better.

Hi Melissa,



Thanks for your reply. It's nice of you to say those things. I am proud that i have left but still i am frustrated at myself for still not being able to stand up to him and tell him to leave me alone. He still has contact with our daughter and i fear he would take his anger out on her.



I know this is the best decision i have made. I hope my daughter will grow up KNOWING that this behavious against another person is unacceptable.



Thanks again for your reply.

Hi Shaz, my name is Melissa and I am 33. I have never been in an abusive relationship, but I felt compelled to right to you still. I want to tell you that I admire your strenght and courage to leave the relationship! You should be proud of yourself. The decision to leave is quite possible the best gift you could have ever given your daughter. You lead by example and sent the message loud and clear that abuse is not acceptable and your daughter will not find herself in a similar situation! Stay Strong and continue to lead by example!
