I do not wish to re-live the times I have felt unsafe, as there were several times during my previous relationship (which I refuse to call a marriage), due to domestic violence.
Stemming from those 2 1/2 years [of hell], however, on occasion I still feel fearful when my, now, [beloved] husband is not home.
I have dealt with panic attacks, sometimes topped with asthma attacks. You feel like the walls are closing in all around you, and you can’t take a breath; true horror at it’s best.
I used to be a victim… but I have been healing. So, not only am I a survivor…
I am an overcomer as well.
