5. He tried to run me over with his mom’s truck.
“Broke into my house when I still lived with my mom and brother and grandma. Started slamming his fists on the bathroom door, because I was showering. Asked about drugs through the door, yelled back asking him to wait in the driveway.
Went out in driveway in a towel to see what he wanted. Told him sorry, but I didn’t know where to find any drugs. He tried to run me over with his mom’s truck, I hopped up on a 2′ rock wall to escape.
On the flip side, another crazy ex jumped on the hood of my car barefoot in his pajamas, weeping, in the pouring rain to stop me from leaving him. I just kept driving anyways.”
6. He once strangled me to show me how easily he could kill me.
“He once strangled me to show me how easily he could kill me. He took pictures of me in compromising positions and used them as blackmail. He would hurt me but never in ways that would leave marks. He made sure I knew I was never good enough. He forced me to do things, sexually, that I wasn’t ready to do. When I tried to break up with him he sent me pictures of mutilated animals and destroyed the gifts I had ever given him.
It started when I was 14. It ended with police intervention when I was 17.”
