So as of March 12, I left my abusive relationship. I tried my best to stay as long as possible, at least for my youngest son. Yet after getting punched in the head, I could not do it anymore. My head still hurts. My hand is bruised from me trying to keep my face from getting hit. I have a big bruise on my right thigh from getting punched. I have been slapped many times. My hair has been pulled to the point that it was falling out. I have been given a bloody nose and a busted lip before. He was mentally, emotionally, and physically abusive for about 2 years and I had enough of it. I was reminded all the time that I didn't pay the bills, that he was taking care of me. I couldn't think for myself. I walked on eggshells around him. Thank god all this happened while my 2 oldest children were at school and they did not get to see me getting knocked around and yelled at. I got smacked in the eye once and when I fell on the floor he would kick me and yell at me to get up. He hit me in my ribs to the point where I couldn't pick up my 2 year old without hurting. Then I was told I was milking the cow and being over dramatic about my pain. He even threatened to make it hurt worse if I wanted him to. Even now he can not admit to what he has done. It kills me that I had to leave him because deep down I love him but he made it so easy for me to leave. Now I am staying with my dad and step mom. I am feeling happier. I'm looking healthier and I am finally eating again and slowly starting to feel like me. I am so glad I found this forum to share what I have been through. I hope I will be able to help others out there like me.
