After my assaults, I thought I was alone. I didn't know who to turn to, and I didn't know what to do. Its been a long
road to get to this point: to be able to create this website.
There were those that have stood beside me since the begining, and those that I have come to know recently who have given
me an amazing amount of courage.
Thank you to:
Jeremy, for always having your door open to me, and even though you might not have known why I was upset you always let
me know that you cared.
Meg, for always being there to listen, and being ready with a much needed offer of tea.
Melissa, I have just met you but you have given me such strength. You keep tell ing me I'm the strong one, but each day
you survive you become stronger. I can't say that everything can be the way it was before, it won't be, but the person you
will become will be just as amazing.
Haullie, you are an absolutly amazing woman. Your strength, your attitude, the goodness you see in life is showing me
that there is so much more to this journey than just simply surviving. In the short time that we have known each other you
have shown me such friendship and understanding. I know now that all of our dreams can become more than simply dreams. We
will have our good days and bad, but in the end we will be thriving!!! I love you, hun.
Mindy, for the ups and downs we shared you have still been there for me. You have been an amazing source of comfort, friendship,
and love and I can never thank you enough.
To the members of After Silence. You have given so much support. I may not always have the most to say to everyone, but
just know that I am always there to listen to you all as you have listened to me. We are all survivors!
