Stories about abuse from women with disabilities

Molly: My husband has never accepted our son has a disability. I have an intellectual disability and my husband doesn’t accept that either, because he can’t see it.

Mary: If I fall from my wheelchair he doesn’t tell my carers or take me to the doctor or hospital.

Rose Lillian: The sexual abuse by my brother had long-reaching effects.

Anj: Through sheer determination and willpower I’m where I am today, gradually reclaiming my life.

Katerina: My father never gave me reasons for his abuse other than it was all my fault.

Liz: Our relationship should never have started.

Sandy: We played happy family...

Leanne: I was so accustomed to being abused that I just accepted it as being what I deserved.
