I have been a survivor of domestic abuse for exactly (removed by moderator) months! I suffered for (removed by moderator) at the hands of my abuser, who I have a (detail removed by moderator) son with.
Thankfully I have not heard from him not seen him for (detail removed by moderator) months. And thankfully has not tried to come and see my son, (detail removed by moderator),
Not that he knows his name, nor when he was born.
Just this week, I signed my statement, telling the police of the abuse he inflicted upon me, for most of the duration I was with him. Including while I was pregnant.
There were so many reasons to leave him. But he wasn’t just violent, he was manipulating, and he could get into my head and twist everything.
I never had the courage to leave him before I was pregnant or even during up until 6 months pregnant, as he made me believe that my family didn’t love me or want me.
But when he threatened to beat me so badly that I would miscarry, I HAD to leave him!
So, I rang my mum and she brought me back home.
Since then I suffered with nightmares for 3 months until my son was born. And I now have a condition called Costochondritis, which is inflammation of the ribs and breast bone, caused by the abuse he inflicted on me, which I have to take anyi-inflammatory pain meds for, but only when it starts really hurting again.
Not only did he abuse me, but he also RAPED a 16 year old girl that befriended him. Bear in mind he is (removed by moderator)!
I thought I would join up on this website to talk to other survivors of Domestic abuse. Share my story, and hear other women’s stories.

Bless you, and welcome.
So great you can see how he manipulates: I believed mine for so long, and his version of the truth!
I have been left with a health problem too, due to abuse, so I sympathise.
You’ll find great support here x*x
