Hey guys, it’s Swan. We just wanted to do a really thorough trigger warning for this episode. This episode deals with assault. This episode is a recording of me last week after I was assaulted, and it has my very real, raw emotions. I can see that that would be incredibly triggering for somebody. Please, before you listen to this episode, be aware that there’s a lot of emotion, a lot of fear, a lot of ugly crying. If you can’t, or you don’t want to face, or deal with, or hear, or experience that, please just skip this episode.
If you or anyone you know is affected by these issues, here are some resources you might find helpful. Please, don't hesitate to reach out for support. You are not alone.
