Devestating Day

My husband is a vet with mental illness steaming from his military service. He has been faithful with his meds and therapy and such a wonderful man. He has faced a lot of loss over the summer. Several deaths and everything else. I noticed he was spiralling and his meds stopped working. I begged and pleaded with him to call his doctor and get his meds checked but there was always an excuse. Today he lost it and beat me. I have many injuries. A black eye and swollen face, broken jaw and teeth and stitches in my arm.
My body hurts but much less than my heart. I miss my husband desperately

I hope to hell you pressed charges. I don't care how many "issues" someone has,that's not an excuse to beat the shit out of someone.

I hope he's in jail.

I have PTSD among other mental illnesses. Doesn't give me the right to lay my hands on anyone. Nor is it an excuse.
