Angelica & The Controlling Physical Abuser – Domestic Violence, Narcissist Abuse

Play episode

Angelica’s future husband was her child’s martial arts instructor. Angelica saw him as responsible and safe. However, the persona Angelica’s husband projected to the outside world was just a facade. Once they got married, Angelica’s husband became very controlling, was unfaithful, and became sexually/physically/financially/emotionally abusive toward her.

It’s a story of coercive control, rage, security, protection orders, excuses, feeling trapped, physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, financial abuse, and support.
