My name is Equashia and I am a survivor of domestic violence. I currently live with my three wonderful children in Chapel Hill, for whom I fought for over three years in order to rescue them from their father. It has been a struggle to overcome many challenges, such as diagnosed PTSD, and further psychological damage. Thankfully, we have made great advances, and are safe and happy. One of my biggest obstacles was financial dependency on my abusive spouse. One night, after he cracked my head with a steel can, I finally gathered up the courage to flee with my children. However, I found myself homeless and unemployed with children to support.
My life experiences has taught me to be completely compassionate for other women in abusive relationships. I understand the homelessness, fear, desperation, and shame at allowing someone to disrespect your body for years. My heart reaches out to all the women seeking help from Wehdah, and wish to extend by home to them.
I really need to move to a more secure neighborhood and do not have the funds to do so It's like I'm being abused all over again Please some one do something to help us.
