Im sorry you had to go through this
by: Victoria2

I'm sorry that anybody has to go through any abuse at all! I'm glad you escaped and please don't feel foolish for moving in with him. You thought he had changed like how i thought my mother had changed so many times. We all really want to believe someone can change if we love them, but some people just can't. I am so very happy to hear you have someone great in your life now. Congratulations! Thank you for sharing your story, it must have been hard for you to share it. A lot of these stories must have been hard to tell because of so many reasons 1) being scared that the abuser will find it 2) People will make fun of them 3) no one will believe them and the list may go on. Imagine how hard it is to have someone you know believe you. I'm glad your brother believed you, but with bruises and such, I can see how even if I were ignorant to abuse and shy away from stories, I would believe you. God bless you and your new life.

Meeting Violence with Violence I would not advocate
by: maurice

Oh Janet, great you are a victim of abuse out into victory over it. Living your life with your gentleman husband and two beautiful children. You wer brave to get away from that uncontrolled beast. The little S''ite. no good member of the male species. While I don't advocate violence in return to the abuse and violence that he perpetrated on you, maybe your brother and his friends gave him a touch of his own medicine. You were unlucky/unfortuneate, I hope your telling of your story will benefit many women who live or are forced to put up with such abuse will learn from it and get away from such control freaks wimps of men. He was a danngerous man, so I hope he was caught and put away from society for years to learn about himself. While you did not literally kick him where it's hurts you sure taught him a lesson. I hope and pray with the help of your family and friends you received counselling for all you endured at his hands. All forms of abuse. Let go, live well, laugh alot, love much especially yourself, your loving respectful husband/partner and your angels. Hi Janet have a healthy mind in a healthy body, get out there taking part with like-minded women in sporting and cultural activities, do it yourself, do it as a family, get your children taking part you all grow old happily having a healthy minds in healthy bodies. Always believe in yourself. I am certain your story will help others. good on you.
