Hello! My name is Shelbi and I’m from a small town in a place called Dixie County, Florida. I was born an raised in Old Town, Florida. And yes, this place is old! I mean, probably. I have no idea. Anyway, keep reading!

I myself was physically and sexually abused by someone I used to call my friend, whom I also dated briefly before the abuse started. I was 14. It lasted for about a full year, every single day I went to school. Because I know the hell that one goes through, I wanted to take my personal horror and use it to help others who suffer in silence. Now, I personally don’t use the word ‘victim’ when talking about abuse because I don’t feel like a victim. I am a survivor, and so are you.
