GRAPHIC/TRIGGERS: Violence against Women & Girls...Bambi shares her story on I.G.! Heartbreaking...

Shared from:HelloBeautiful


Horrible. Young ladies if you sense something is off about a guy, no matter how handsome or popular..trust your gut..it is our compass to keep us safe! Sorry this had to happen to this beautiful young lady, I pray you get the counseling you will need to endure even after the scars have healed..Blessings and Bravo to you for being brave enough to show the real face of domestic violence!


Per Bambi's I.G. account she writes:
 
This night be a little graphic but I just want to let everyone know that I am okay. I am a survivor of domestic violence with a boy I dated for 8 months. I really thought everything was fine but he constantly questioned me about cheating and flirting. Non sense. I never looked at someone the way he looked at me. Thought I loved this boy. How can someone that 'loves' me do this to me? The scars on my chest are way worse and extend down to my right nipple, completely scarred. The skin on my shoulder has been completely skinned. And i have bruising on my rib cage, neck, and my muscles. 

I was kicked out of a moving vechile, then beaten and dragged, as I blacked out and was left lying there in my own puddle of blood. Doctors said I could have died if not made it when I did. I am so blessed and beyond lucky to be alive and have so much support from friends, family, and strangers. As I try to recover I ask to please keep me in your prayers. I have to wear a neck brace for 3-4 weeks, an arm cast and I can barely walk for now. Thank you for all the love. I hope to be an inspiration to women and anyone involved in domestic violence.

 African-American women ages 15 to 34 is homicide at the hands of a current or former intimate partner. In 2011, Black females were murdered by males at a rate of 2.61 per 100,000 in single victim/single offender incidents and it is typically by someone they know (94%).
