The purpose for creating this site is to give encouragement to women as they experience the pain and agony caused by betrayal trauma. Though everyone comes from their own unique situations, I’m hoping there will be something about my life experiences that can help others along the healing path. This is not a journal; it is a collection of vignettes from my own life. My stories are based on my own real experiences. Please do not mistake my stories of hope to mean that I have not suffered the deep pain and anguish from betrayal. I simply choose to focus most of my writing on the valuable lessons I’m learning while on this journey instead of the triggers, panic attacks, and overwhelming heartache I’ve endured.  lion

The title of the site, “Crushing the Lion,” is based upon one of my dreams that you can read about here. A very brief description of my betrayal story can be found here.


Because I do not wish my betrayal story to be the one thing that defines me, I have chosen, for the time being, to be known as Avalon Vic.

    1. I just read your story on your blog. Your description of the absolute shock and disbelief of discovery is so accurate and expressed so well. Our stories of discovery are similar in that I never had an inkling and neither did anybody else who knew my husband. We are a sisterhood, indeed.
