    The verbage that comes to mind when I read this leaves me and all that I can write is unbelievable.

    Been there done some of that and have the records and scars to prove it.. * Screw the T-SHIRT*

    Yes, it seems unbelievable, but it is all so true–unfortunately. He was such a total asshole (to put it mildly).

    I’ll show you my scars if you show me yours. 😉

    my Jackassjerkmofo will tell you straight out that he is an ‘asshole’. I should have heeded the warning.

    I will do a post about my worst physical scar. It’s acutally how I met my now real life best friend.

    Hi…I just had an emotional talk with my boyfriend last night..he said that I don’t have a closure yet with the recently-ended abusive relationship with my husband..soon to be ex..divorce is in the process. He told me that I have never really talked about my sad experiences with my female friends..that it’ll help just to let it out. I know he is right…I have gotten out…but the emotional scars leave me unwhole sometimes. So,,,,it bumped into your blog..and it’s like a door has opened for me…to deal with my wrapped emotions…’s a start

    Rowena, first of all–welcome to my blog!
    Yes, you do need to have closure of some kind on your past relationship and it does help to talk it out with others.
    Your best bet is to, also, sign up and join this forum (link below)! It is the best and everyone there will help you more than you can imagine! They are great and have a lot of experience and insight since they’ve gone through or are still going through an abusive relationship. If you have any trouble getting in (sometimes it takes too long to get your acceptance email), please let me know here and I will get in touch with the admins to hurry along the process.

    Oh! Thank you All Time Love! You are so sweet!

    Hi, I just lost my comment to you. So, I wanted to say thank you for sharing your story! One more is one more needed! I think all abuse stories need to be told. I love too hearing about your animals, your dogs and the little pig is so sooo cute! I would like to get my 25 year old son an animal that he could have as a pet in an apartment. His dog lives with my dog and I. He is a sweet dog but aggressive to other large male dogs so no good for in-town. I don’t have much money nor does my son so I am trying to think of a pet that would be relatively inexpensive to raise. Our two dogs get some pretty high vet bills and sometimes just the flea prevention is a lot out of my budget but these dogs save my life every single day! Yesterday, as I was crying and hurting over a man I fell in love with, a man who turned on me one day, from all good to all bad but I was not married so thank goodness I got away from him. Still, loving a person who one day changes into another person, and then you never get to see the person you thought you knew, the one you loved, again, is a shocking experience.
    Ok, I better stop before I lose this comment. Sometimes my fingers hit the wrong keys and all sorts of things happen. I don’t know what some of the keys on my keyboard even mean, lol, but they sure do a lot of things.
    Thank you again and I will come back to read more of your stories.
    I am dogkisses on and came across your blog as i was feeling so lonely today. I love your title. I just started blogging but have been writing as a hobby for most of my life. I am enjoying clicking Publish. I just love that.
    Thanks again for writing.

    Hi dogkisses and welcome to my blog!! I see you’ve had bad experiences with men, too. I can surely relate–unfortunately.

    Hi allbymyself– nice to hear back from you so soon. Yep, had a few bad ones didn’t I? I’ve been learning or trying to learn about avatars, blavatars, and why my avatar takes people to a space I have on Windows Live. whew… frustrating. I just want to write but did not know people were being led to a space that I did not know was even public!! So am fixing it I hope.
    Back to reading and writing soon. I will read more about your critters!
    Thanks again for sharing!
