TW: Sexual Assault, Intimate Partner Violence
We dated on and off for 4 years. I always thought the way he treated me was normal. He and his friends would corner me and yell disgusting things. Make me feel bad for seeing my friends, so much so I lost all those friends. He was controlling, verbally and sexually abusive. I look back at how poorly I was treated and now know it was abusive. He used to get me SO drunk, and have sex with me while I was passed out. I’d wake up in the morning so sore I could barely walk. I was young and naive. You just don’t realize what you’re in until you get out. He is a firefighter, someone you think is going to protect you. Think again. I’ll never EVER forget.
