Inspiring Stories Of Courage – 4 People Who Survived Domestic Violence (And How You Can Too)

You might feel that you are alone in feeling immense doubt, desperation and guilt at the thought of leaving your partner. You are not. So many women and men who are survivors of domestic abuse thought and felt just like you do now at one point in their lives. Some of them were brutally battered or almost killed by their partners before leaving. Others did not have scars or bruises to show for their abuse, but the effects of emotional violence were so severe and long-lasting that they attempted suicide before or after leaving the relationship. Some stayed for 6 months with a violent partner, others for two decades. But they all left – and they all survived. And you can too.

“He waited until after we were married to tell me that he was thousands of dollars in debt” – Kate’s story

    Kate Ranta was a divorced single mom when she met a military officer online who swept her off her feet. After three months they got married and there was no emotional or physical abuse for three years. However, there were a few red flags, and her now-husband turned out to be very financially controlling. After being physically threatened by him, Kate decided to get a restraining order and left him. Unfortunately, over the next few months she was unable to keep up with the mortgage and her exorbitant legal fees from the divorce. After eight months of struggling financially, she took him back. Eventually she left again and they were separated for over a year. The husband showed up one day at her new apartment and shot her twice, once in her hand and once in her chest. The bullet barely missed her heart.

    Now Kate shares her story with the world to help people understand that financial insecurity is one of the primary reasons why victims return to their abusers. It is a real issue and it needs to be talked about more.

“Silence was his weapon” – Nicola’s story of emotional abuse

    Nicola met a handsome, charming professional rugby player when she was 21. She had many friends, a successful job and high ambitions for the future. “Why are you being so clingy?” was one of the first remarks her boyfriend made about her. What followed was constant criticism, belittling and guilt-tripping. Everything was Nicola’s fault – she was “too boring”, “too stupid”, “a bitch”, and if she ever became upset with his behavior she was being “too sensitive”. Whenever that did happen, he would ignore her or isolate himself from her until she would come crying back to him, feeling that she was the one who had wronged him in some way.

Sex also had to happen whenever he wanted it. When he brought a friend to their house to watch them have sex and Nicola refused, she was told that he feels disappointed and sad. Over time he also began punching walls and tables before the relationship was finally over.

“I didn’t know he was abusing me” – Leslie’s story


    Meet Leslie Morgan Steiner. A graduate of Harvard College, Leslie is a successful businesswoman who met her abuser on a subway. The man loved everything about her and supported her in all of her professional endeavors. He was also someone who was savagely abused by his father growing up. Leslie thought of herself as a self-reliant woman who would under no circumstances ever tolerate abuse of any kind from another person. Eventually she moved in with him and slowly became isolated from friends and family after the man quit his dream job “for her”.

Five days before their wedding, Leslie was working on a writing project and got frustrated with it. Her partner strangled her and hit her head repeatedly against the wall. He apologized, told her he was stressed, that he loved her deeply and that nothing similar will ever happen again. He then proceeded to beat her two times a week and constantly threaten to kill her for the next two and a half years of their marriage. “I never once considered myself as a battered wife”, Leslie says. “Instead, I was a very strong woman in love with a deeply troubled man and I was the only person on earth who could help [him] face his demons”.



“You don’t love me enough, you have 5 minutes to be ready for sex” – Ian’s story

    “I loved my wife. Those feelings got abused”, says Ian McNicholl, a man who has been systematically and gruesomely abused by his then 34-year old wife. Ian has had his skull fractured, his cheek and eyelid split open, his head battered with a metal bar, his nose smashed, his ribs cracked with a hammer, countless surgeries and several other injuries – all of them inflicted by his ex-partner. The woman would push lit up cigarettes up his nostrils, batter him with a hammer and boil his groin with hot water. After a violent incident, she would tell him he has five minutes to get ready for sex and would start counting down. To learn more about Ian’s story, click here.

Her “reason” for abusing him? She would tell Ian that he does not love her enough and does not initiate sex enough, making her feel unattractive. Ian never called the police on his wife. It was a concerned neighbor who tipped them off and saved his life. “For men, they may not be believed if they come forward”, says Ian, “but all victims should find the strength to confide in someone because help is out there. I’m proof of that.”

TITANS RECEIVER SAYS HE WILL QUIT THE NFL IF REQUIRED TO STAND…….

MAYBE PEOPLE LIKE ROSIE AND MICHAEL MOORE

CAN HOOK HIM UP WITH A MOVING COMPANY (TEEHEE)

10-14-2017



Tennessee Titans’ wide receiver Rishard Matthews told Matt Parker of WSMV that he would be done playing football if the NFL makes it a requirement for players to stand during the national anthem. Matthews, a sixth-year pro out of Nevada, deleted his tweet response to Parker, but not before the news producer saved it for the whole world to see.

Whether or not Matthews actually follows through with his threat is still to be seen, and of course, that’s assuming the NFL passes a rule saying players must stand for the anthem, which may or may not happen.

As a private league and business, that is, of course, the NFL’s prerogative. It should be worth noting that the players are peacefully protesting, though, and they aren’t protesting the national anthem itself. This is a movement that started as a protest against the prejudice and oppression many minorities in America face — especially as it relates to police brutality. It was a stance started by Colin Kaepernick, but the protests became a national debate and an NFL wide phenomenon when president Donald Trump called protesting players sons of bitches.

Since then, the issue has exploded, much to the chagrin of commissioner Roger Goodell.

If the NFL passes the rule and players actually leave the league as a result, the national attention — good and bad — will only continue to shine on an issue that the league is desperately trying to move away from.

They say any publicity is good publicity, but for the NFL, only football publicity is good publicity, and this issue has gone far beyond the actual X’s and O’s.

My guess is money will have the final say and he will play for as long as he can and this is idiot talk.

HYPOCROSY OR SOLIDARITY? YOU TELL ME…….

WELL SAID

JEFF PAYNE,UTAH OFFICER, WAS TOLD NOT TO WORRY ABOUT SAMPLE…….

OFFICER PAYNE STILL INSISTED BLOOD BE DRAWN……

A Utah police officer and a former dipshit of the day on DAWGS BLOG, See  rough arrest of a hospital nurse  has drawn condemnation put the woman in handcuffs even after investigators told him not to worry about getting a blood sample he was seeking from a patient, the chief whose department asked for it said Friday.

Officers initially wanted the sample as a routine part of a car crash investigation, said Logan Police Chief Gary Jensen. But after Salt Lake City Police detective Jeff Payne was told he’d need a warrant or formal consent to get it, colleagues told him that they would pursue another strategy.

“He simply said, ‘Don’t worry about it. We’ll go another way,'” Jensen said. Payne nevertheless insisted.

WUBBLES

When nurse Alex Wubbels held her ground based on the University of Utah hospital’s policy, Payne dragged her screaming from the hospital in handcuffs. Salt Lake City police apologized and put Payne on paid leave after dramatic video of the July 26 arrest surfaced.

Police spokeswoman Christina Judd said an internal review will look at the directions Payne received and how he responded.

Prosecutors also opened a criminal investigation that widened Thursday when the district attorney asked the FBI to look into possible civil rights violations.

Payne’s lawyer, Greg Skordas, declined to comment Friday.

Payne was supported by his supervisor, Lt. James Tracy, who is shown on the body-camera video continuing to insist that police have the right to get the blood after

Wubbels was handcuffed in a police car.

Tracy’s lawyer told the Deseret News that he’s been the target of multiple online threats and had to shut down his social media pages since the video was released. Attorney Ed Brass said Tracy has served Salt Lake City for nearly 30 years, and judgment should be withheld until a full investigation is complete. Tracy has also been placed on paid leave.

The patient, William Gray of Rigby, Idaho, had been driving a tractor-trailer in northern Utah when he was hit head-on by a man fleeing from Utah Highway Patrol troopers in a pickup truck.

The troopers had tried to stop the pickup for reckless driving but the man sped away, the highway patrol said in a statement. The pickup driver was killed when the two vehicles collided. The semi exploded and caught fire.

Gray was flown 75 miles south to the University of Utah hospital’s burn unit. Police from Logan, near the scene of the crash, were called in to investigate.

DAWG SAYS:

Did he also falsify a police report in his justification of the arrest?
