It started online for a few weeks then we exchanged numbers. I loved the way we talked, laughed and seems to truly care. We finally made a date to meet face to face. I was over the moon on our first date. He invited me to come back to his hotel. At this point I’ve been knowing him for a few months, so I didn’t see no harm. I’ve never felt this way before, and I was loving everything about it. We had a beautiful weekend.
Two months after meeting we decided to move in together. Things was amazing for the first few weeks. In the matter of 5 mins my life changed forever. . .
Long story short, he came home argue that he didn’t get a new position, I asked him what happened, and he kicked me full force in the back. I was knocked out for days, so I been told. When I woke up, I was in the hospital with tubes coming out of every direction. I didn’t remember what happened, I had broken teeth, arm, leg and ribs. I was sexually assaulted with an object that mess me up on the inside to where I am sterile (I can’t have children). I had to relearn how to walk. I stayed in the hospital for 3 long weeks. I have fully recovered, and I thank God for that every day.
As I reflect on that day, could I have changed anything and the answer is no. I didn’t do anything wrong, I’m a nurturer by heart and I wanted to make sure he was okay. He’s in Nebraska State Prison for 10 years. He has tried to reach out to me, but sorry will not fix what he has done to me. I have moved on with my life, I am now married to a wonderful man, and we have a child on the way.
I know Kym personally and I believe in her mission. I encourage you to support Quality Day Foundation and women like me. Women always need resources to leave and stay gone.
