I lived with him for 10 years. I stayed with him the last three because I thought he would change or I could change him. It wasn't possible. He just got worse! I blamed myself - it was my fault that dinner was 5 minutes late or I didn't clean right. The verbal abuse and beatings got worse. But It's so hard to be alone, so I stayed until I couldn't take it anymore. Then I ran and have not looked back . Thanks to Sisters I can have live again. The memories of the pain and torture are still with me, but each day they fade a little. I know they won't go away completely, but I am learning to cope. If you are being abused, GET OUT you can't change them . . . . .
