Archive for the ‘my husband is abusing me’ Category

This book was suggested to me by a reader on The Last Straw.  She wrote, “This book simply explains what & why & how abuse gets started in family’s. It also goes into detail of the Physcology of these men.”

You can find a copy for as low as $1.00. I encourage you to check it out, it listed around a 25 page preview and I gained much from just that and end lists resources for every state. Many think my man can and will change, this book will help to put that fairy tale to rest. Let me know your review on this book.

Love & Peace,

I received the following post and since it was so honest and brutal I wanted to start a post on its own so that we can respond back and forth. This is frightening to say the least and sadly, happens everyday.

The post read:
everybody that is still in this type of relationship..please listen to me..please get out as fast as u can!!! i had to watch my very best friend bury her 22yr old pregnant daughter 2 days ago!! her daughter~s boyfriend broke in while she was asleep since she had worked 3rd shift the night before.dragged her outta the bed.beat her head against the concrete wall of the apt then strangled her so hard her throat collapsed! her mom was the 1 who found her when the daycare called &said she failed to pick up her kids,kacy had 2 kids – a 3yr old daughter & a 5 yr old son & a little girl who never had a chance to be born,who since when they done the autopsy found that she was fully developed at only 19wks,it was decided her name would be ‘angel magnolia’ & buried in her mothers arms since it would be closed casket! my bff has had her heart ripped out because of this & her daughter didnt think it was that bad,that things would work out….i am going to do anything i can do to keep another mom from going thru this pain…nobody should ever have to bury their child.much less if it can be avoided to begin with!!! so im begging yall please get out while u can!!!

The following comment was left for another post and I wanted to share it with you to comment: 2010/09/26 at 6:57 pm

I am survivor. I have been out of the relationship since June 2010. I was hospitalized for the most recent incident in June with a fractured lumbar spine and multiple contusions to my face/head. Two black eyes, both lips fat, broken nose and other numerous bruises over my body. If I didn’t hide in the woods he would have killed me. He is in jail and the trial is starting September 30th. I saw the evidence pictures for the first time 3 days ago. When I saw the pictures of what he had done to me, it became real. Up until then it all seemed like a dream. The court is saying that this is one of the most heinous crimes against another person they have seen in a very long time. As hard as it was to see the pictures, they gave me a sense of empowerment. I do not want to be labeled as a victim, I want to be labeled as a survivor. I am thinking of starting my own blog to share my story and to inform people of the court process & things like that. I am ready to share my story with the world. You may contact me if you would like to at ( i.am.a.survivor1984@gmail.com )

you should admit
you’re mean/ low-down/ triflin/ & no count straight out
steada bein sorry alla the time
enjoy bein yrself.
