Yes I was married to my abuser. It started small when we were dating, the snide comments, the pinching, the yelling, throwing things. I would cry & tell him that he was hurting my feelings, he would say he was sorry of course. And I would believe him. He would be sweet for awhile but then I would do something or not do something in some cases that would set him off. After we got married it got worst & more frequent. I was subjected to his emotional & verbal abuse on a daily basis. He would throw hot plates of food at me, rip chunks of hair from my head, slam me in to walls, punch me- I've had black eyes, a broken nose, busted lips, he caused me to have a miscarriage. The worst was after I lost the baby, we had a fight because I was crying. I was sitting on the bed, he picked me up by the throat, slammed me in to the dresser, then choked me til I passed out. When I woke up, he was sitting on top of me with a knife in his hands.
