I am a survivor of domestic violence, this is my story, Im trying to write a book telling my story, in the hope it will help others who find themselves in similar circumstances, this is the first chapter, please watch this space for further chapters..

I was just a 15 year old naive, confused, rebelious and somewhat lonelly young girl. I struggled with abandonment issues I had from being an adopted child, although I had a good relationship with my adopted Dad I never had a connection or felt wanted nor loved by my adopted Mum. My life spiralled out of control rather rapidly. I went from a catholic school girl with dreams of becoming a Marine Biologist , spending my school holidays volunteering and gaining experience at the local vet clinic to being pregnant and homeless to a violent man 9 years older than me whom used me as a human punching bag.

Over the next four years Wayne Lewis Williams would strip me bare of any pride, dignity and self esteem, I was alienated from my family and the few friends I had, becoming completely dependent on the him, I soon learnt he was not my saviour but a monster.

Leaving me with cosmetic physical scars, even deeper emotional scars, but the most painful and heartbreaking reality of being seperated from my daughter for her entire childhood. The ultimate price to pay for my own life…
