Abuse changes your life.
You have the power to change it even more.
Physical and sexual abuse impact not only how a woman's body feels and what it is capable of but also how she thinks and feels about her body. For example, maybe you're someone who avoids routine healthcare or has trouble trusting people. This is not unusual.
But it doesn't have to be that way.
By understanding how and why the effects of past abuse can linger for a lifetime, you can not only help heal yourself but also improve your quality of life. When you recognize your triggers and how to manage them, your life and your work become less stressful and more in control.
