PERSONAL STORIES FROM MALE VICTIMS OF FAMILY VIOLENCE AND ABUSE

Andrew

She'd throw things at me - whatever she could find - ash trays or anything heavy. Sometimes she seemed like a person possessed. She would grab me by the genitals. 'I'll rip your fucking balls off' she'd say. Then if I restrained her by holding her shoulders she would try to bite me or kick me.

She burnt a hole in my arm and hit me in the face with a cooking pot that split my eyebrow. She picked up a hunting knife and threatened me with it. I took that one off her and she took out another one and she threatened to cut my eye out.

She would throw hard objects at me, like photos, bottles, plates. This would happen if I did things like not putting clothes in the proper place, or not hanging a towel up.

The violence was there when I met my wife. She had a lot of emotion and anger in her, and I always wanted to understand why, so I could help. Over the years my father-in-law and I started to share more of our stories of frustration in living with such abusive women. Our stories were almost identical. I persisted stoically for over 20 years. It is very humiliating to admit you have a problem. No-one wants to air their dirty linen in public. For years I’ve been locked out of the house, plus physically and verbally abused. She would wake me in the middle of the night, beating and thumping me on the back with her fists.
