Survivor Stories

Yes, I live in fear.

Having only being married for less than a year, I have been beaten over a hundred times or more, (no exaggeration), and told that I am always being watched, so I cannot escape from him.  Yes, I live in fear.  I am also pregnant with our first child and have no family I can count on, as no one believes in domestic violence in my family.  They tell me to grin and bear it.  They don’t know of the torture I go through, and the crying and fear I deal with on a daily basis, all while trying to keep this baby healthy inside me.
