SAFETY ALERT: If you are currently being stalked or abused, we recommend that you use a computer that your abuser does not know about, such as at a public library or a trusted friend's home, because abusers often check to see what sites you have visited. There is always a computer trail, but you can leave any page of this site quickly by pressing the ESCAPE button on your keyboard.
