Where do you go now that you have left?

Planning stages or even looking into leaving your abuser can be a hot mess. He/She may monitor your every move via the web or check your phone history. What's a person to do?

Dr's Phil's wife, Robin and a team have created an app that looks like a regular news story app, but ingeniously if you need to find a place to go in an emergency, it will provide the nearest place to go to for help or provide a number for you! 

Most abusers keep a close eye on his/her victims, causing the victim to feel stuck in reaching out for help. 

This app sounds like a great resource! I haven't checked it out personally but plan on it. 

If you are still not sure you wish to go that route. Go to http://www.thehotline.org for assistance! It's confidential. 

Please be mindful at all times of your cell and computer history! Or use a trusted friends or go to your local library! 

Making the decision to leave is a BIG STEP! Be safe and be careful! Let a trusted friend or family member about your plans. Find your local shelter using the Aspire app or the old fashioned way of a phone book. A representative can do what they can to help you stay as a guest at their facility. Don't wait!

Stay safe!

BIG HUGS!
