  1. Why did she even let it get to the point of her even being paralyzed? Not saying it's her fault but why she let his abuse get that far? She should've left before it got to that point!

  2. HI APRIL I JUST WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW I AM SO HAPPY THAT YOU ARE STILL A LIVE AND I WANTED TO TELL YOU I AM ALSO A SURVIVER OF DOMESTIC VOLIENCE I AM DEVORCED AND TOTALLY OUT OF THE SECURACTION AND ITS BEEN EIGHT YEARS AND I AM HAPPY AND I AM DOING ALSOME AND I THANK GOD EVERY DAY AND MAE CONTINUES TO BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY 🙏

  3. People always said I have to give him a chance, I have to forgive and try again. He didn't hit me. How could I justify leaving and not going back? Well they didn't live with him. They didn't hear the things I heard. I told him if he doesn't stop, I'm leaving and I'm not coming back. He didn't stop degrading me and he also escalated to covert threats in I feel statements. I feel like tying you up so you can't see your family and friends. I feel like killing your family. No we were not in discussion mode at that point. It was terrorizing for me. Then it escalated some more, I'm going to smash this guitar over his head (our 3 year old) while holding it over him. I left, there was never a point when I felt I should or even wanted to go back.
    People say, well he hasn't hit you. Do you think I should wait till he does? How can women keep believing that he loves them when he is doing everything the opposite of love. Recognize you're in danger when its still verbal abuse. That's where you draw the line. That's when you leave. You don't have to wait for there to be evidence in court. Protect yourselves.

  4. Got to sneak away.If you announce you leaving, they will threaten and/or do harm to you… These men/women are so crazy as hell

  5. Sad how people think well you stayed and that's why your in the position your in now. Think. When a person becomes abusive, tbere anger takes over. They start having violent thoughts. Anytime a person tries to leave a violent person, that person will pursue until they kill because now they have lost control when the person left. Unfortunately people who did leave have been killed by their abusive ex partner. Being in that situation is extremely scary and difficult. No one should ever judge someone for staying or blame them for there situation. They are not the abuser and it's not there fault. They need so much support.
