REGINA'S STORY
"I was ready to end the relationship and cycle of abuse."
Illustration by: Carina Lindmeier
I was in an abusive relationship for seven years. I experienced emotional abuse and intimidation. However, that emotional abuse and intimidation turned into physical abuse when I became pregnant and was present during all three of my pregnancies.
I feared for my life and the lives of my children. It took several attempts over several years, but around my 28th birthday,
I was ready to end the relationship and cycle of abuse.

I found myself at Women’s Resources of Monroe County for counseling and art therapy. This is where I made my first vision board and took steps to move forward. I am now five years free, happy, and surrounded by the love of my children, family & friends.
