We were broken up, he wouldn't stop calling me. I asked him to stop and he just kept calling. I got really worried he was going to hurt himself so I stopped by to check on him before work. We talked for a few minutes and he seemed ok.

He grabbed me and kissed me and I told him to stop, we were done and I was going to go, I just wanted to make sure he was ok. He was drunk but ok, and I needed to get to work. I was on my period, just started dating someone else and really was over him and didn't want any part of this hook up.

I told him that, told him I needed to go to work or I would be late. He threw me down and pulled at my scrubs. I clenched my legs and tried to keep my pants up behind him to stop and that he was trying me. He put his hands on my throat, I felt my pants come down, and I passed out.

I was crying when I woke up and realized what was happening, he told me to stop crying and to hit him if I thought it would make me feel better. I didn't dare, I knew he'd hit me back and I'd really be in trouble. I cried, let him finish and left.

I feel like an idiot. I believed him when he apologized and believed him when he said he was sorry. I dropped the case and ended up marrying him. He never did that again but he put his hands on me again and make me feel small daily. I finally told him I wanted out a month ago and that I didn't want to be with him. He's been gone almost a month and our divorce is filed.

I will never let anyone make me feel small again. I'll never be with anyone who doesn't listen to my words, who makes me cry from fear. I learned my strength and I learned what not to accept. No is no, even in a relationship, a break up or a marriage. No is no!
