“(He) would often start an argument with me in the middle of the night,” she said. “He would start accusing me of doing all sorts of things, planning to leave him in my head. That I was disgusting and vile.

“Nothing was ever true but I would really doubt myself, especially when I would wake up, and he would be like ‘You were lying there with your eyes open, planning to leave me.’ And I would be like ‘I was literally asleep.’

“He would only want me to sleep naked because he said if I didn’t, I was keeping myself from him. It’s this tactic that a lot of abusers use, it’s just this constant availability and everything’s centred around them and I think that’s why I wanted to come out and talk about this because the signs really are from the beginning.”
