BUY LOPRESSOR NO PRESCRIPTION, I lived in a dark hole, wearing long sleeves and pants in the middle of the Texas summer to cover the shame that I felt.

Wow. This post brought tears to my eyes. I'm glad you're out and you're safe. I'm glad you were courageous to leave and to share. Thank you.
I struggled so much reading this post.
I have a tendency to soak up people's emotions and the rawness of yours cut deep into my heart!
It's so incredible to think about the complicated answer to a simple question asked by somebody on the outside looking in: "Why is she wearing long sleeved shirts on this HOT day!?"
Although, once you've seen, you can't unsee.
I know the dark circles of hunger under a child's eyes and the reason behind a girl hunching over with her hair covering her face.
Thank you for sharing!
Dear MM, I find your story particularly disturbing. Makes me want to cry. How can someone loved and trusted, whom you believe loves you in return, be so cruel and violent. I don't begin to understand this. And that it is in epidemic proportions...truly horrifying. Thank you for sharing your story. It can't have been easy revisiting those memories.
You're the first person who's actually been able to show the rationale behind "cutting" to me. Not that it's suddenly easy to understand. Am very glad you were able to get away, and I hope nothing like this ever touches you or your family again.
thank you thank you thank you for posting this story. you will never know what good it has done me to read it - but it has. you are brave and strong and have set an example for your kids by your actions that i now know i need to set for mine.
thank you and i'm glad you are safe and free now.
You truly are a strong person. You did more for your children by leaving then you will ever know! I'm happy you got out!
thank you for sharing your story - I just have to shake my head at your entire experience - you are a strong person for leaving!!! and you are teaching your kids to be strong as well :-)
I am glad you left with your children, and can share your stories with others. We all need to be more aware, to help each other, and the innocent children.
I placed this website in my reader over a week ago. I took the pledge. I may even write something of my own, someday.
But your post is the first I've actually read. I was afraid to begin reading.
I'm glad I did...and so much more glad that you had the courage to find help.
Thank you for sharing your story. Thank heavens you were able to get yourself and your babies out. Many blessings and much peace to you and all of yours.
I am so glad you found the strength to leave. It likely saved your life and possibly your childrens.
What am amazing and brave lady you are. To find the courage to leave this with children to take care of is especially hard. People like this destroy your self-confidence. My heart applauds your courage. So thankful you and your children are safe and well now.
Have a blessed life. You deserve it after such abuse. I pray this man was also prosecuted as well.
I'm so proud of you! It's never easy for anyone to find courage to leave...and save themselves and their children, so happy you did!
I hope people find strength from this post.
Thanks for sharing..and for being an inspiration.
I'm sorry to say I DO UNDERSTAND
so much of what you wrote.
Maybe I'll share a little too someday
but I'm surviving by shutting it out.
Thank you for sharing.
I understand the beating and the kiss the next morning.
I am glad you are safe now.
Glad you're out!!!! Take care.
Isn't scary, how abusers can carry on in public as if they are the kindest people? Then, they go home and do things like this? I'm so glad you had that lightbulb moment and got out of there with your kids. You said he got bored with the hitting and took it to the bedroom. Thank you for getting out before he got bored with you and took it to the kids. Your strength and bravery have most likely saved their lives from being the hell yours was.
Thank you for sharing this, and for offering to help others. So happy you and the children got away.
i'm sighing with relief that you got out of that situation and so did your children. i hope that one day you'll be able to be more public (if you're not already) and help other women because i've not doubt that your story and pain is common.
thank you...and bless you and your moment of sanity.
I'm horrified that you had to endure such treatment from someone who professed to love you. I'm beyond relieved that you were able to get away with your children at last. You are very brave for speaking out, thank you.
Good for you! I am so happy you got yourself and your kids out safely.
I hope you have been able to find other ways to feel.
You are a strong and brave woman, your story truly touched me and moved me to tears, thank you for sharing your story. I will be praying for you and your children, your continued courage and your quest for a beautiful, violence free life.
What amazing courage and strength it took to get yourself and your children out of that situation. I hope you are safe.
Thank you for sharing your story.
I'm just so glad that you found your way out of that situation. That you were able to be strong, take your kids, and go. It's truly amazing.
Thank you for sharing your story.
Everytime a survivor speaks out, someone somewhere listening will find either a bit more courage or a little more compassion.
Everytime a survivor speaks out it makes a difference.
Thank you! We bonded long before I knew your story and even afterwards I admired the courage and strength this took dear friend.
That mirror image haunts us all.
You did what so many fear to do, ran with your children and said no more. Because of your bravery your children have a mother who isn't in pain and shock on a daily basis. Your bravery saved them from having to live that life themselves.
This is a strong message to those who don't think they can do it, your proof you can escape. (Hugs)Indigo
I am so glad you got out, isnt it weird how all abusers to the outside world seem to be the good ole boys, Thanks for sharing I know how hard it is.
Thanks for all of your kind words. And Thanks to Maggie for making this blog possible.
Our relationship was off and on for many years before we married. He took me and my (then) 2 year old daughter to Texas far away from my family. My daughter, who is now 17 remembers him giving her wine at maybe 4 years old in an effort to get her to sleep--so that he could have his way with me in peace. I was just talking to my daughter about it this morning.

That was the scariest account I have read... and yet so inspiring that you found the courage and strength to get out.
Wow!!! RT @manicmariah: I'm sharing my story on Domestic Violence... http://violenceunsilenced.com/mm/ PLEASE RT
The beginning of it sounds EXACTLY like my ex. Luckily, we separated after 2.5 years, but not before he called me a loser and punched a hole in the wall. I learned a few years ago that he actually did abuse the women who came after me, sexually and physically.
This will help somebody, I know it, because if I had seen this while we were married, I would have thought twice about his behavior BEFORE the 2.5 year mark.
I can only imagine the courage it took to get out of that. Thank you for sharing.
MM - I'm a new reader to your blog and reading your survivor story here both broke my heart and gave me hope.
You survived and you escaped, and your spirit shines through.
Thinking of you.
WOW! I'm SO glad this is all in the past for you.
I have friends who have experienced that first hit and swear their husbands will not ever do it again...I will share this with them.
Thank you for sharing your story.
mm~i can't find the words to express the feelings you brought forth for me here... i'm so glad you found that in you to finally go... so sorry you endured what you endured... i wish you great peace and joy now in life. you deserve it.
Ugh. This sounds hauntingly like Sleeping With The Enemy. Except Julia Roberts didn't have 4 kids to worry about. My heart just split in two reading this. It's almost a prototype for abusive relationships. And so many are still trapped in them thinking there's no way out because they have children, or they have no friends or family close by to help or that nobody will believe them.
Thank you for letting them know that they have options. That they're not alone and that they don't have to live with the pain and the fear. I'm so glad you got out when you did, and so appreciative of the courage you showed then and now in telling your story. Believe me, someone will hear it and because of it will find what you found -- only perhaps with less pain.
I"m glad you found your way out, gladder still that you found yourself.
