Relationship Violence Story From Nicole

by Nicole
(Orlando, Florida, USA)

I'm 17 years old and I have made the mistake of getting engaged. My fiancee is close to 20, I thought he was my dream come true. Currently he has been hitting me, throwing me against the walls, he tried to choke me several times, and worst of all, tried to stab me with a knife. I'm pretty much living in hell right now and I don't know what I should do. I love this kid so much, but it seems that, the more I love him, the more he hits me. I have more than 12 bruises all over my body. I have marks on my neck and my jaw. My wrist has been hurting a lot since he punched my jaw and twisted my wrist.

Today 03/10/08 is the day that he tried to stab me while I went to his house for lunch. I couldn't make it to school on time. He pulled my hair, threw me against the wall, screamed that I am a bitch, whore, and that I'm not worth anything. I can't tell my mom because she thinks I'm stronger than she was (my dad used to beat the hell out of us for 14 years; from rape, to beating, to guns to our heads). They divorced 3 years ago. I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO.

I saw this website and decided to write because it is killing me. I wish that I wouldn't be so afraid, and that I could get out of here.
