||I was the victim of domestic violence in more than one relationship. 12 year ago
||I was in a physically, sexually, and every other way, abusive relationship for 7 years! He "got ahold" of my heart, then went on. I kept in touch with him, after the last of 3 restraining orders was served, except while married, out of fear and retaliation - I kept in touch with him, because I left him. He died a couple of months ago, and the bondage of fear has been lifted! I had several injuries, all reported, but always went back (he knew, that way I couldn't sue him for those injuries). He was a sociopath. Our "relationship" after the 7 years was up, is known as trauma bonding. Now that I'm in my "golden years" those old injuries are showing up big-time. 12 year ago
||I was in 2 horribly abusive marriages for 10 years each. I was exposed to all of the above abuses. I finally realized that I could not change the abuser, but had to change myself and that gave me courage to leave. My 3rd husband is very good to me, although he may smart off once in awhile, it is nothing like I'd been through before. 12 year ago
||domestic violence is about control. The perpetrator of violence is aggressing against the victim, who is being attacked. The two people are not "engaged in a fight" as though it is 50-50. As it is about control, violence is physical, emotional, verbal, psychological, sexual. The abuser is in a position of power over the victim. 11 year ago

||exactly as it sounds... there are several types of abuse.. they can occur in any situation, the office, the school, the home, etc., Also, usually the only form of abuse that is *ever* recognized is severe battery, I add the word severe because sometimes Police won't take someone seriously without enough bruising. Domestic Violence is anything within an atypical home environment.
Let's just say every thing that is clicked has been experienced by myself.
