Domestic Violence Story Chapter One

Domestic Violence Story - Chapter One

To show or not to show?  To share or not to share?  After deliberating, it was a no brainer for me to show other women (and men), just SOME of what I have been through.  Yes, a picture tells a thousand words.  But why did it happen?  What did "I" do to cause it?  Was there any domestic violence prevention that could have been done?  Why did he do this?  Many women ask these same questions.

Sometimes there are absolutely NO "logical" reasons why things happen.  Sometimes there are logical reasons.  But none of them make us physically, emotionally, or mentally feel any better after they happen.

Was this the only time?  Well, I would love to tell you it was.  But that wouldn't be the truth.  And the truth is why we are all here, right?  To find the truth and seek our own solutions to get out.

Were there red flags?  In reflection, "Heck, yes!" 

He was so nice at first.  A gentleman, seriously.  Then we moved in together.  BIG mistake.  By then, financially, times were difficult.  A few months after we moved in, I was laid off from my job.  The man who hired me kept me employed until his wife came back from pregnancy leave, then he let me go and she took over my position.  He never mentioned his plan to only keep me until she returned.

The strain financially did not make my boyfriend happy.  We started getting into disagreements.  Then one night the yelling started.  So I went into the bathroom and packed a bag to go and stay at my girlfriend's house.  Ahhh, THAT is when it started.  He threw me across the bathroom and I hit my head on the sink and fell between the toilet and the sink to the floor.  I remember staring at my legs and arms.  They were not comfortable in the contorted position in which they landed.  But I was in shock mostly that he so effortlessly pushed my chest and I literally flew across the bathroom.

Instead of hearing "I'm so sorry, I didn't mean to do that!", I heard, "You're not
f@#$ing going anywhere!"  Obviously, I stayed home.

If you couldn’t even get up, what would you do if someone did this to you? Or worse, what if they laid their hands on you and hit you? It is well worth remembering that your day will soon come, too.<< MORE >>
