I have been abused sexually, mentally, and physically all my life. I am 48 years old and I want to leave an abusive relationship now!!! I cant take anymore!!! I started using drugs at 12 to escape the abuse of several men. I did drugs for 13 years until I met someone who said they wanted to help me. At first they did. I got clean and started my own painting company. I did very well for about 5 years but all the hard work and abuse to my body was taken from me everyday. My business started to deteriorate from me being depressed and abused. I have worked at it now for 17 years and every dime I have made has been taken from me. I am now ready to leave before I kill myself. I have nowhere to go and nothing but the clothes on my back. I have been homeless before and always end up somewhere terrible. I know I can build my business and my life back up if there are people out here willing to help me. I have always worked for everything I have received in life and feel ashamed for doing this. I am desperate to live a peaceful life on my own 2 feet. If there is anyone out there looking to help someone I will not let you down. I am a fighter and I will make it. Any help will be good help. I will make my dreams come true one day and if you want to be part of my journey I will post to update everyone. I will pay it forward also to help others as much as I can. Thank you for taking the time to read and God bless us all!!!
