Silent Abuse

To start off with a little background about myself. I am a second generation
that suffered abuse from both a parent and a partner. My mother grew up with
a father who was sexually abusive. She then married a man to get away from her
father. This man over time sexually abused her from things he did and selling
her to his friends. I watched him beat her and having his friends “accidentally”
crawl into my bed some nights. As I told my family about being touched I was
blamed for just being nice that it was my fault. My first child was from a friend
of the family as I had learned it was expected if a guy liked me I had to let that
guy do whatever.

I got kicked out and was living with a family member with my baby for no real reason. I ended up
talking to a guy on a chat line who seemed nice. The first time I dated him he asked me to marry
him. I said yes because he seemed nice and acted like a gentleman. The marriage was kind of rushed
because by the time I had been with him for a year I had a baby by him.So we got married after
moving in together.

So slowly I didn’t even notice he took advantage of my submissive, wanting to please others
nature. He started adding others to our love life even if I said no. Next starting the hitting and
running away expecting me to do anything to get the cash to get him home.

After a few years and 3 children he had me convinced I could not survive without him. He had to
come into all my drs, pick out my friends and if we argued or did not agree I had things like being
hit in the head, choked until I wet myself or being degraded. He also when I was expecting my
youngest started selling me for things from cash for food to a ps2.

I was able to take the hitting, put downs and everything else he did to me because I thought
I deserved it. It changed when he started having me act younger in bed slowly starting from
18 to the end acting 12. He was also cybering with underage plus taking off to meet women.My
daughters started feeling not safe. When lived in TN he told therapist he was having sexual
dreams about his stepdaughter and she said it was ok as long as he did not touch.

Over multiple moves I took losing everything from friends to family and everything I owned.
He never left bruises so how could I prove? I finally had last straw when he threatened to
put son through wall. Thankfully I had a friend help. I found out afterwards he did touch his
stepdaughter & youngest. I suffer from PTSD now and am afraid to go outside the house but being
by myself scares me.I also have trouble with speech and health issues. Between growing up and my
17 yr marriage I cut myself and tried suicide over a dozen times to get free. He even fooled friends
and people in public by acting loving as he made sure I told no one the truth. Even the people he
treated me badly in front of never saw the truth or helped as I badly wanted to be free. Yes I am &
always will be scared of him

Bella Candles beautiful candles but shady service

Now I'm not a fan of putting a company down unless they have truly bad service or I have had beyond a bad experience with them. EVEN though they have beautiful candles beware how they bill and ship.

I had been getting emails from them for a few months and back in June they had an offer of try one of 3 candles for just a $1 shipping. I thought it was a great treat to see if I liked them because I love candles as long as they have a decent scent and even more I love getting good surprises. As a mom of 3 teenage daughters the fact they had jewelry inside made it even better because not only could I make my house smell nice I could if I did not like the item or it did not fit I had 3 other people I could give it to.

So on June 10th I ordered the Paris candle which had a ring in it plus had the added benefit of being both a moisturizer and a massage oil which would help relax after a long day. So the hold on my credit card got placed right away and on the website it says order within a certain time it would get shipped in under 48 hours later. Image my face when I start checking on the order because I can not wait to see this candle and try it out as I have never had a candle that could be used as a lotion that the order was not there even though I had the money come out of my account. Then the next time I had checked my account it said I had paid 4.99 shipping on the 16th of June for a candle called Fruit Punch but it wasn't fulfilled and yet to be shipped. I let the fact I got charged more than the ad said to get the candle fixed to the correct type. I finally on June 24th got them to get my order fixed. I after got a Fedex notice and finally got my candle on July 7th almost a full month after I ordered the one candle.

I will have to give them the fact the candle smells great.The buttercream and almond scent is something that my children also enjoyed as I let them use it to soften their hands. After burning it a good 15 hours it is still going strong. It came well packaged and I have used it as a candle , lotion and oil. I gave the ring inside to my daughter Beth who has a birthday in August. I did not care for the fact there was no signature required or a way to remove my credit card from file on the site.

Fast forward to August. I had just moved because the place I had lived was being sold for the landlord not paying taxes on the property. I knew I had wrote Bella Candles back in July after I had finally gotten the candle that I did not want to be part of the subscription plan they had. I figured since I was not able to remove my card and no attempt that I knew of to charge my card 49.99 that it got accepted. Come August 12th my fiance had wanted to do a family photo for the holidays and I found a great deal where I could get 48 photos and a 5" x 7" canvas for $23 . I had checked my account and had the cash before we got on the bus and rode out there. Now I have a phobia of being on the bus so the ride itself was an effort of love. We get inside and go through the 60 poses plus pic out what I wanted them I went to pay it. My card got declined. So I had to take cash that was earmarked towards other things to pay that. When I check my balance I'm 49.99 below what I should be. So I email this company and find out they had billed me for a candle and a soap? First off I had cancelled and Second it was stated 2 candles as I refuse to pay more than around $7 tops for soap as I can get body wash at Bath & Body works for cheaper.

I was told 7-10 business days to get the cash refunded back on my card and they cancelled the order. I am now nervous on them trying to redo this in September. As of August 27th I have not gotten any cash back. I am disabled and on a fixed income and getting tired of getting the run around. After taking a month to get the 1 candle I ordered and over 2 wees to get back the cash I did not give them permission to take it does not matter to me how great the candles smell or the beautiful jewelry. I consider it theft , I had been willing to let the first 3.99 overbill go and buy a few more candles around the holidays for family but I am done. This is warning be csreful from who you order from online as even a big place can bend you over if you don't watch your accounts.

Sky2 - Detritus Machine: Post-Apocalyptic Thriller.

Can you imagine a barren world, just behind the verizon? Then you will be at home with the generation-x work, Sky2 Detritus Machine (Post-Apocalyptic Thriller), by William Amerman. This close to the edge, life-like account of a world torn apart in the midst of a global pandemic, follows Nick Burke, ten years prior to the events of Sky1, Nick embarks on the assignment of a lifetime, descending deep within the World to Ground 42, the city of Muldoin. In this city, personal space is expressly and strategically restricted, and the scarcity of ethics and world balance governs all aspects of life; these urban struggles are what propels Nick to bring a power struggle between the aged bureaucrats and other warring factions under control, in the fast-paced, thrill ride, and written much in the styling of Hunger Games. Nick must not only endeavor his family and followers out of harm’s way, but discover the true scourge of humanity, the evil vices each of us soothingly retain, and in doing so, try and determine if he can in fact trust anyone he has come to know and rely on, while on this hellish journey to reclaim the world as they once knew it to be.

The true malady of this story, was in my ability to not put it down! This book is a spring must-read for post-apocalyptic genre fans! I got this book to review as an ebook on Amazon and could not put the book down.

About the author :

William Amerman was born in Houston, Texas and obtained his Bachelors degree in English from The University of Texas - Austin, way back in the last century. He lived in Austin for eight years, then moved to Denver, Colorado to explore the whole "mountain man" lifestyle. In Denver he met a cute Dutch girl on a ski slope, whom he quickly wooed and followed back to her native country, The Netherlands. He married the cute Dutch girl in 1999 and they spent the next 7 years raising two sons and a sadly over-weight hound in a suburb of Amsterdam before moving back to the US in 2003. Their third son was born in 2005.

He received his MBA in Finance from Santa Clara University in 2009 and currently holds a "real" job in Information Technology in order to feed his three sons, but manages to write in the mornings and on weekends. His latest efforts are directed towards finishing a futuristic thriller trilogy based on a simple idea he had one late Saturday morning lying in bed, looking at the sky through a skylight window in the roof; proving that getting up early can be a hazard to creative thinking!
