I am a domestic violence survivor. Nine years ago I was shot, stabbed, and then almost beaten to death by my boyfriend of three years. I tried many times to leave but was afraid after a period of time I just cut off communication with him to wake up three days later to him kicking in my door shooting me n stabbing me which left me paralyzed from the waist down. He was later sentenced to 25yrs in the state of Alabama. It took me a year to learn how to sit up n dress myself and walk again. I just want to say to any woman who is being abused please leave and get out. You do not deserve to be mistreated less known abused.
