More than 40% of all domestic violence victims are male but many surveys actually show the statistic to 50%. Assaults by Women on Their Spouses or Male Partners: Virtually all sociological data shows women initiate domestic violence as often as men, that women use weapons more than men, and that 38% of injured victims are men, (California State University Professor Martin Fiebert summarizes almost 200 of these studies online.)

How do you grind?
PTSD and dental issues
I lost a little friend this weekend. I was sad and embarrassed at the same time. My little friend has been with me since I can remember. We have enjoyed good food together, we have smiled together, shared good and bad times together. It's just that he didn't like it when I was stressed because unwittingly I had abused him, he struggled not only to be happy but also to survive. He gave up the fight and decided he didn't want to be part of my life any more.

Lydia Castle is fifteen, naïve and living in Yorkshire, England. She looks at her reflection in the bathroom mirror as she wipes her neck, the warm blood slowly trickling down her trembling legs. She is in shock, trembling, wondering how it had all come to this moment.
Mike Webberson is a builder with a reputation for being hard and is feared in the small community, but to Lydia he is a kind, caring friend – until now...
He is showing his dark and foreboding side. The abuse and threats are like a dark, shameful and dirty secret for Lydia, trying to cope with it on her own. She is too scared to tell her parents, knowing her father will look for vengeance.
As Lydia struggles through adversities she is becoming stronger and empowered. Her life turns a full circle, facing her nightmares once again.
This time Lydia, now older, can finally fight back!
