I fell in love with this guy who I thought loved me and wanted to have a future with me. He was nice at first and bought me roses when we fought then things just changed. He started going behind my back and doing drugs like crazy and he was constantly high. When he was high (which was almost every single day) he would become violent and would slap me as hard as he could when he was upset with me. He demanded things from me sexually that I wasn’t comfortable with and I was afraid he would hurt me if I didn’t give in. He ended up raping me a few times and I’ve wanted to go to the police but the only proof I have on him is him saying in detail how he wants to brutally torture and murder me. I’m not joking. And I’m afraid if I say something to the police he will retaliate against me. It’s gotten so bad I’ve had to move from Texas to Illinois but I’m finally safe and I’m with someone who treats me right for once. This is such a heavy topic for me and it hurts me to see and hear other peoples stories when I’ve had to live through mine and I know what this type of pain feels like.

How did this make you feel? What would you say to someone who has been through the same thing?

It made me so scared and vulnerable. I was worried h was going to murder me or hurt my family. This is honestly the scariest thing I’ve ever had to go through in my life and I’ve been through A LOT. I wish and I hope that girls can see the signs and leave before it gets bad. And signs I mean the signs of abuse and aggression.
