During a profile interview with ‘When loving him hurts: A co-dependents guide to recovery’ author Philippa Sklaar and psychologist Sue Hickey, Sam Cowen took calls from listeners who wanted to share their experiences of having been in abusive relationships.
One such caller was a woman who said she’d endured 18 years of abuse in her marriage.
She said she and her husband had gotten into a heated exchange one day, where it was either her or him who would survive.
She shot and killed him.
Listen as she tells Sam her story.
