Life and times of an abused woman.

I was alone but not alone living in another country.
I was afraid but couldn’t show it when I was pregnant with twins.
I felt dumb because I didn’t know the language and needed help.
I felt isolated with no family or friends to talk to.
I felt ashamed that my husband did not want me anymore.
I felt blamed because he thought the babies were not his.
I was an emotional wreck when the money ran out in a foreign country.
I was a broken mess by the time we were rescued and were able to go back home.
But most of all I was so tired and exhausted.
I needed to be rescued and helped.
We needed a new family system to help me with twin babies and a mentally ill spouse.
I found refuge when it finally came and took advantage of it.
I found hope that we would finally be okay and be human again.
I found the love of my babies that kept me going to this day.
Their father gave up and killed himself which helped us all in the long run.
