Things Are Clear

by Cheryl
(Missouri, USA)

Married to the man of my dreams was once what I thought. We had the perfect relationship. One everyone wanted. As time went by it was then I realized he was cheating. I left him. I was not about to scoop down to his level.

Living alone, things weren't perfect but I knew my worth. On 1/13/2016 late hours. He came home. Abusive and mad, Filled with so much anger. I had no clue what to do. I ended up doing as told and got in the car with him. Biggest mistake ever!! He ended up calling me another woman's name. I stated that we were getting a divorce. He told me the only way out was in a coffin and he veered towards an oncoming van and took me down a 20-foot cliff.

I remember waking up in the hospital with everyone on edge. They were told I would not make it and my kids were to tell me bye. I made it. I ended up with a broken back, shattered pelvis, internal bleeding and my liver lacerated. I had to learn how to walk, talk and love myself again with all the scars and pain. I've done this with the help of family, otherwise alone. Meanwhile, he continues to ruin my life.

It has now been 1 year since my wreck and I have a black eye and a restraining order. Things have never let up. When will I have justice and why won't he stop. He did this, not me. I was a faithful loving wife.

Still to this day, I'll get a text from him bashing me. He once was a man I loved and now he is a monster.

One day I hope to be out of this nightmare. Things are real and clear. Always know your worth and never stop fighting.
