Love Shouldn’t Hurt

So many people are victims of domestic violence. It has become a real problem in our society. Women shouldn’t have to live in fear and they should do whatever necessary to break the cycle.

Domestic Violence and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Sara never dreamed that her life would turn out this way. She had no idea that she would end up with a person like her husband. He seemed so sweet and caring before they got married. He made her feel special. They only dated for 9 months before they were married. However, just three months into the marriage, she received her first bruise. Of course he was very apologetic and kept saying that he didn’t know what got into him. He was loving after that and Sara thought that it was a one-time incident. However, it happened again. This time it was a push to the floor and he was apologetic once again. After that, he was less apologetic each time it happened until it got to the point where he didn’t apologize at all and sometimes even told her that it was her fault that it happened to her.

 It’s kind of funny that you get to the point where you don’t even remember why the argument started or what caused the abuse. Like the time when she found herself laying on the bed holding their 5 month old child with a knife being held to her throat. And the time he kicked her in the stomach when she was pregnant with their second child and told her that he really didn’t care if she had the baby or not.  And another when she had a migraine and he was trying to sleep because he worked third shift and she was having a hard time keeping the kids quiet because she was so sick. He got out of the bed and yanked her off the couch and pulled her down the hall by her hair and told her to go to bed if she was so damn sick.  When she had to run out of the house because he was coming after her and she fell onto the concrete driveway and he pulled her by her hair back into the house and she had scrapes all over her legs from the driveway and a busted mouth from where he hit her. When she had to run out of the house and lock herself in the car because she was trying to defend her 16 year old and trying to keep her husband from hurting him.  There were constant reminders around the house as well; the holes in the wall, the broken furniture, broken pictures and just seeing the stairs that she got pushed down on numerous occasions brought up plenty of unpleasant memories.

    “Sara” is not an advanced educated mental health professional, but “Sara” does seem to be a person with an extreme case of hypermanic bipolar disorder with comorbid symptoms of narcissitic personality disorder and dissociative identity disorder.
