Thank you for your lovely words, Sherry. Yes, sometimes I wonder why I didn’t self-destruct by causing physical harm to myself. I was always strong and even rejected drugs because I didn’t want to hurt my body.

This strangling incident was actually only one of a few times when he physically harmed me. Almost all the abuse was mental.
