Hello everyone, I am new here. I guess I can say that I have been married and in denial for 4 years about my abuse. My story is probably the same as everyone else or probably not. I've been married for 4 years, I have a baby daughter. My husband and I relationship started out sweet ( take me out to dinner, buy me roses, ect.) I first notice my husband had an anger problem a year into our marriage. One day I told him that I wanted to be alone and the first thing he did was got mad and said " So it's over? You're divorcing me?!" I said " No, I just want to be by myself for a while." Through out or whole relationship I notice that he can not take rejection, every time I say/said I want/wanted to be alone he blows up. The times he's gotten angry are: 1. When I was sick and didn't feel like being bothered, he drug me out of bed and hit me 2. I wanted to spend time over my sister's house so I pack my stuff and was half way out of the house when he came and drug me from the front yard to the back yard to a Seward hole and threaten to thrown me down there if I left him. 3. He hit me when I was pregnant with my baby daughter. 4. When I said I wanted a divorce and he took my baby daughter and was gone for several hours, when the police came he tried to convince the police that I was crazy and was trying to harm my baby. The list goes on from cheating on me to giving me a Venereal Disease. I've asked him " Would you want your daughter to be with someone like you?" He said " No!" I asked him "Then why do you do it to me?" He's convinced me that it's might fault that he does what he does. My excuses of Why I won't leave? Because I do not want my daughter to grow up with out a father in her life. I've seen movies and shows about women being abused but I always think " That's not me!" but I've come to realize that it IS me.
