One day I was happily awaiting the birth of my first baby in what I thought was a “normal marriage”, the next I was being choked at the hands of my husband, an NFL sports writer of national fame, and became a “victim” of domestic violence. The next 10 years of my life I battled an abusive and controlling husband until I finally “got it” and left with my children and started a new life.
He last touched me in 2005, but he hasn’t given up on his controlling ways. In 2011, he sued me for custody of our two teenagers, even though one of my children was 16 years old and both saw their father each week. He lost his battle against me but hasn’t given up on trying to dominate me in any way that he can. My one child is now an adult, thank God and my years of court-order involvement with my ex are coming to an end. Now, I pray for my children and hope that they will not be hurt by their father.
This blog is my story and my therapy. Each blog I write is a venting of the pain and sorrow life connected to an abuse has caused me. Writing in real time, all post reflect how I was feeling and what I was experiencing at the moment.
I hope that my story will help others. I hope that my journey will guide others through their own hell with an abuser, a narcissist personality disorder in their life. Feel free to leave a comment. God Bless.
