Hi I am Chanty and I am new to this forum.
I have recently separated from my husband who verbally abused me over the years and physically assaulted me over the past 6 months by choking me on numerous occasion and suffocating me with a pillow.
Now, I have flashbacks of him choking me and I am making this 'girling' sound and cannot breath, many times of the day and I also have nightmares and I wake up in the middle of the night and cannot go back to sleep.
