She wrote, “TRIGGER WARNING October is #domesticviolenceawarenessmonth, and I wanted to share a little about my story.”

As the actress of Zombieland elaborated on her experience with the abuse, she described how she felt physically and mentally. As a result, Abigail felt that she had been treated like an outcast, a problem, stupid, useless, ridiculous, overly sensitive, unreasonable, and unlovable human being.
With the support of her family and friends, the 26-year-old was able to leave the horrible situation that she had found herself in. During an interview with Vanity Fair, the actress discussed how she and Ira Kunyansky are doing well and how they share an excellent, healthy, happy, and fantastic relationship.

Her message of hope is directed toward anyone who finds themselves in the same situation as she did, and she said, “I hope sharing a bit more about my story at least helps some people feel a little bit less alone. If you are in an abusive relationship currently, you CAN get out of it. I know it seems impossible and terrifying, but you have survived so much, and you CAN survive leaving if you have the right tools and support.”
