Domestic Violence & Child Abuse

In the middle of the night, it always seemed like I could run away when it would get light. Sometimes I’d get dressed and lay there waiting for the sun, but when it came up he’d be there, pretending things were normal and it seemed so much better to just pretend, you know? It seemed like I imagined all the other stuff and I really wanted all of that to be something I’d imagined. And I ended up feeling like I was just as guilty as he was, like it was a crime we were committing together. And every time someone calls me a victim…I feel like I’m the biggest liar in the world.
