One Imgur user’s post has recently gone viral for its horrifying portrayal of what an abusive relationship can look like.

KrissyKross decided to share the images because it is the third anniversary of her ex-husband’s sentencing.

KrissyKross told the Huffington Post the following :

“It was weighing heavy on my mind,” she said. “I never got therapy afterwards due to lack of money, so I never really learned how to deal with what had happened. I didn’t ever bring it up with anyone and never really talked about it with my family after the fact.”

The below messages are a prime and very real example of the many forms in which intimate partner violence and abuse can manifest. According to the National Domestic Violence Hotline, habits such as insulting partners, showing extreme jealousy, controlling a partner’s social life, damaging a partner’s property and hurting their pets are all indicative of intimate partner abuse and violence ― and KrissyKross’s ex-husband exhibited much of this abusive behavior.

Over the course of their marriage, KrissyKross said that he physically, sexually and emotionally abused her.

 

“This is a good example of strings of texts I would get at work while on shift (I am not allowed my phone on the clock),” KrissyKross wrote.

 


 

“Tony was a coworker. I knew when he clocked off because it was when I was clocking on. Fella helped me change my tire one time and I was suddenly banging him (apparently).”

 


 

“I stayed the night with a female friend from work. He knew because he ‘set traps’ for me.”

 


 

“I visit my mother [once] every couple years. I had a huge bruise on my arm from where my husband had bit me, leaving visible teeth marks. The bruise was so bad it hung around for almost a month. Long enough for a visit to my mothers and to still be photographed by NCIS when I finally turned him [in] several weeks later.”


 


KrissyKross eventually left her (ex-husband) after he hurt her dog and cat. She know lives alone and lives a life free from abuse.
