5K Run For Domestic Abuse Awareness

As part of my college course we have to look into cases of dementia and how the patients are treated. As a result of this i have come across a LOT of mistreated individuals which lead to abusive relationships with their care workers, families and partners. This made me look into the millions of stories of abuse survivors / victims of men and women and some stories hit close to home. I was in a mentally abusive and highly toxic relationship, i was isolated from friends and family and didn’t have or wasn’t allowed much of a social life outside of the relationship and never until now, after hearing other people’s stories have i realised how toxic it was. Granted i was never physically hurt, but mentally, i was pretty messed up. This is not a sob story in the slightest cause months later i’m doing pretty good for myself. but i was lucky enough to have family and amazing friends to help me come out of this situation and i know that not many women are as lucky as me. I’ve decided i want to do my bit to help and raise awareness so here i am.
