I was doing a routine chart review last week, and I ran across this entry in one of the doctor's notes:
She says she experienced domestic violence from her first husband, but then she went out and bought herself a nice baseball bat and after that he was very good to her until the day he died."
I'm glad it worked for her, but wow.
You deserve to be treated with love, respect, and dignity. If you are experiencing domestic violence and feel you're in immediate danger, please call 911. If you just need to talk to someone, call 1-800-799-SAFE or visit the National Domestic Violence Hotline for more information.
