"I had a miscarriage..."
"In October of last year I had a miscarriage. I cried for the first two nights and on the third one my boyfriend said it was time to start getting over it. Here I am thinking we're in the same boat and seeing him as my strength to only hear him say "Get over it".
Gawd it destroyed me. He said it was because he didn't want to face it and seeing me like that was a constant reminder but I truly lost so much respect for him after that."
"[He] broke up with me at [my mom's] funeral...""My mom died. You broke up with me at her funeral. I feel like I was a tiny bit justified."
"If you try to put something in my mouth that I don't want there....""If you try to put something in my mouth that I don't want there, for any reason, I'm going to bite it."
"What else was I supposed to do when the guy you're seeing is in a locked room with a pretty girl?
"I was meeting his friends for the first time. We all went out and then came back to his house for drinks. I'm talking to his friends getting to know them and being social. He's upstairs and talking to another friend. Girl walks in and goes up stairs. I think nothing of it until his friend comes down and I'm being directed elsewhere.
I realize they're trying to distract me and of course since I'd been drinking everything was a lot bigger of a deal. I throw a fit and go and knock at the LOCKED door and might've started screaming because what else was I supposed to do when the guy you're seeing is in a locked room with a pretty girl? I'm humiliated, can't be talked down and am alone 'cause they're all his friends. Screaming, crying and the like."
