    How long has he been witnessing and living with this?

    Some people are taught from birth (basically) to never, ever call the cops. I was married to one. He was my abuser.

    Others of us, who've not grown up witnessing this yearly, monthly, weekly, daily, hourly, know to call the cops.

    Guess how many doors I had with door jambs intact when I finally went into hiding? (none) Guess how many phone jacks worked? (none) Guess how many cell phones were destroyed? (countless) He even cut the outdoor phone line at the box. And disabled my car. Then disabled his own vehicle after mine was rendered useless.

    Just sayin'.

        I'm 10 yrs past. It's okay to think back now, I hope. Maybe I'll have a nightmare tonight, but probably not. It's been a long time coming, but I've forgiven him.

        Forgiving him to me means: letting go of the hate, negativity that surrounds that part of my life. Doesn't mean I don't think he's dangerous or a fuckin' dickweed. Okay, maybe I haven't let all of it go lol.

        Just saying that I love our son, and will not purposely dig at his father. I will tell the truth when asked, and offer the awesome tidbits (that most certainly existed) when the memories arise - like during daily activities.
