This was a Friday night. The Friday night that I was supposed to leave the girls with him for the weekend. I no longer saw that as an option. We stayed with friends again and I notified him by email that we would not be home. He drove to the house anyway.
I received a phone call at 10pm –duration 2 minutes and 7 seconds.
He was angry and clearly drunk. Threatening to “wreck” me in the community. Threatening to email 3,000 local business owners to tell them what a slut I was. Stating that my daughters needed a life without my influence (I don’t have a college degree…he has a BS in Physiology/Cell Biology…therefore, I am a disgrace…essentially worthless). He closed the message by saying, “8am tomorrow…have my daughters here or you are DONE”.

2:16 am another voicemail came through–duration 1 minute 48 seconds.
Angrier and more intoxicated. Rambling that he will wreck me in the community. “there is karma in this world and you will just have to deal with that” he went on and on.
2:32am another voicemail came through- duration 41 seconds.
He was furious and drunk. “YOU ARE WHITE TRASH…YOU ARE A LOOSER” and on….and on.

This was one of the darkest days of my life. I checked into the Women’s Shelter. A place that I had volunteered for in the past and a place that I collected turkeys for each year during the holidays.
It was the most humbling experience of my life.
