A mother of two told her harrowing story about the survival of domestic violence through her first love, which her & # 39; Porky & # 39; and peed on her during tantrums.
Janine Priestley spent 27 years experiencing the cruelty her ex-husband threw daily at her in their home in Paskeville, South Australia. He called her fat and useless and told her she was a terrible mother.
The breaking point came when her husband at the time came home late at night from a party and tried to have sex with her. When she refused, he peed on her.

The next day he was still smoking and launched a brutal attack for their twin daughters, Amy and Ashley.
& # 39; He came around the table and picked me up and threw me on the floor. He stood over me and grabbed my hair. I thought this is it, this is it & # 39 ;, she said The Australian.
& # 39; He pulled my head back and was about to hit it on the floor. My girls shouted at him. They yelled at him to stop. & # 39;
Mrs. Priestley and her daughter eventually fled and received help from the police.
Her husband was arrested and imprisoned for attacking her. The couple is now divorced.
Mrs. Priestley shared her story hoping to inspire others to speak and get help.
& # 39; The problem is that women are too scared to tell their story, but we have to get it there. & # 39;
Mrs. Priestley had been friends with her high school abuser and they started dating when they were only 18 years old.
The abuse had begun slowly, Priestly said. The first few years of the relationship were good for high school sweethearts.

But the problems escalated as the years went by and Mrs. Priestly discovered that she was isolated and verbally bothered at the age of 21.
And she knew it would only get worse.
& # 39; I looked back at one of my early 1991 magazines and had written there: & # 39; It won't be long before he hits me, & she told the ABC.
It was when the couple moved from Adelaide to Paskeville, a rural town with a population of 200, that the physical abuse began.
He threw plates at her and hit her. He once threw a glass table at her.
Mrs. Priestley began to arrive under stress and torment. If she dropped a dress size, he accused her of cheating.
She began to find it hard not to see herself through her husband's eyes. But that all changed when she escaped him.
Last year she participated in the power competition Static Monsters and became 16th in the world for masters women.
She now has a happy and healthy relationship with a man who tells her how beautiful she is.
