"I started dating a guy in Dec 2012. He told me how his mother past away and his father was a drunk. How his ex was mean to him and everybody gave up on him. Me being a mother felt the need to protect him and show him I was always going to be there. We had a wedding ceremony on 5-4-13 and the abuse physical and mentally started. 5 weeks after that he got really drunk and became angry and extremely violent. On that night as I was trying to calm him down while driving down the road with my 8 year old son in the back seat he had a fit of rage and began to beat the windshield with his fist, then he reached across me and snatched the steering wheel out of my hand and down a 50 ft reven we went. I was cut out by jaws of life and airlifted to the nearest tram a hospital in alabama. When I got there... My advice is, I know your scared and I know what you have been threaten with but if you stand up for yourself in the right way and set your mind to it all things are possible. Call, report, don't hide it, tell everyone you know, get away, you can make it without them!"
