I have definately survived December 09, 2005 4:14 AM

The abuse from my ex husband actually started before we were even married. One day he got mad, then pushed me to the floor and attempted to tie my hands together. Thank goodness I was as strong as he was! But...we eventually got married and I got pregnant...he kicked and hit me when I was 6 months pregnant. Left lots of bruises...nothing happened to the baby though, Praise Jesus. But...I have forgiven him for what he's done and I have been able to move on.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

I personally was not a victim of violence in a way but my mother was from my father for 19 years physically and mentally. She left him 15 years ago and just started dating 4 years ago so it took her quite awhile. Some suggestions to women to have been victimixed is to straight up with the man. Tell him that you have been hurt in the past and that he is going to definitely have to take it slow and earn your trust. Become friends with the person first. Learn as much as you can about him/her before going into a intimite relationship. Join support groups in your town or start one. Double date for awhile and take it really slow. If the person likes you and has an interest in you then he should have the patience. Go to counseling to get farther help if needed when it comes to emotions. I have a group you can join called All Mental Group Support that may help with anything and you can ask around in there for some advice too... http://passport.care2.net/invite.html?g=7017 Hope at least something I said helped someone! Peace and love, Tiffany  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Yes I was abused by a man I lived with for 2 years he never laid a hand on me then one night out of no where for no reason he came home and beat me all night until I was unconcious. I don't know when he stopped beating me all I know is the palms of my hands and the bottom of my feet were even black and blue, I grew up in a home filled with love so this was something I knew nothing about. I trusted this person completely only to have him beat me cut me spit on me all for nothing no arguing nothing and the best part the police wouldn't even help me get into the apartment so I could get my purse ,yes I left him and never seen him again or talked to him. No I will never forgiven him for what he did to me I still suffer from what damage he did.Forget what happened not in a million years will I forget all I can say is I was lucky enough to have parents who took me in and made sure I was alright and so were my kids. No he didn't ever hit them but to go and hit them meant he would have had to leave me alone and he knew I would get a knife if he went near them and I would use it if I had to . I did survived but I lost alot that night and it will never come back to me,I can only say people men and women you do this should be locked up in a dark damp cell and left there to rot!!!!!!  [report anonymous abuse]  [ accepted]

My first two marriages I was able to run away my self, but this time i cant, i have two kids at home, and a elderly mother, and a mortgage.
