Sondra - this is an incredible story --- both the content and the structure. The choice you made to show her positive attributes first to pull us in and then move to the abuse mirrors what would happen to a survivor. You end up deep in an abusive relationship due to thousands of micro-decisions and incidents.

Thanks for sharing this story. It couldn't have been easy for you. I hope it helped with your healing.
