After another abusive session with the husband today I’m feeling really low and depressed. I thought we were over this already. I guess not. It was uncalled for and unfortunately right in front of my kids. He was angry because the kids were being loud and he wanted to sleep. I was trying to get the kids out of the house. After he repeatedly pointed his finger in my face I gave him an attitude and the abuse began. I was actually holding my one year old son when he placed his hand over my nose and mouth after he twisted my wrist behind my back and punched my arm. I panicked because I couldn’t breathe and he wasn’t letting go.
Once he did let go I tried to grab my daughter and leave but he grabbed me again as I got to the door. Again I couldn’t breathe so on reflex I jabbed my thumb into his eye. That did it and as soon as he let go I pleaded with him to let me grab the kids and go.
