I was bullied in school, and sexually abused by the boys. Then we popped into this guys house that she was seeing, there I was in the middle of a room with about ten men all much older by at least ten yrs.

They were smoking weed, I didn't even know what it was.

Nadya's teen domestic violence story starts when she was born, not into an abusive home but to parents who did not really know how to make her feel loved and valued.

This lack of emotional support left her more likely to find herself involved in an abusive relationship as a teen.

If I wasn't acting like I enjoyed it he would pull my hair, hit me and lecture me. He knew he had me then, because I had nowhere else to go, and nobody wanted me, he used this against me all the time. At 7 months pregnant he found me and was waiting for me when I got home. His father lives up the road from me now, I pass him in the street every week. My son is dead 8 years, I got free of his dad 15 years ago.

It sometimes went on for days, especially if he was high on something. One time he beat me but I fought back, it was the worst hiding I ever got, but I would just keep screaming and scratching him. While he was out, our downstairs neighbour broke in through the fire escape and brought me down to his place, He and his wife had just moved in with their baby and couldn't believe the screams. He kept me prisoner for two days beating me and verbally abusing me, and telling me to clean up the mess he'd made, by smashing all the baby things up. My neighbours called in and ordered him to leave or they'd call the police. I left the country when I was nine months pregnant.

This is Nadya's story of teen domestic violence: My story starts from the day I was born really. One day a girl I had just met invited me to her 21st in a local pub.

My mom didn't know how to love me, I never fit in anywhere, was always in trouble. I didn't think my mum would let me go, but she saw how excited I was, I promised not to drink, and I'd be home on the last bus. I met my friend at her house, she suggested I try on a top of hers to make me look older, it was quite a sexy top, she did my make-up and I looked much older.

He had a tiny bedsit, he was a drug dealer, I thought he was popular, and that everyone loved him.

He was so charming and some other girls were into him, I thought I was the luckiest girl in the world because he chose me. I stored my stuff in my job and slept on friends sofa's until a week later I got a bedsit. I called to his mothers where he sometimes stayed to get a break from me, she was away and he was alone.
