Thank you for your words of encouragement. In answer to your first question, my Psychopath intentionally infected me with herpes simplex virus 2 (HSV-2), otherwise known as genital herpes. I wanted to pursue criminal charges and civil suit against my Psychopath for what he did to me, but my mother urged me not to.
I do think that it would be an excellent idea for you to start a new thread about this topic.
The following response pertains to your second question. My Psychopath and I initially maintained a long distance relationship and it wasn’t until I relocated to be in closer proximity to him that his tangled web of deceit and manipulation quickly began to unravel. My psychopath had led me to believe that we were in a monogamous relationship, but much to my surprise and dismay, I discovered that my Psychopath had been sexually involved with at least three other women the whole entire time that we were dating. One of the women was our co-worker Bea (this is not her actual name, but what I am calling her for illustrative purposes). I found out that I was pregnant with my Psychopath’s child within two days of discovering his infidelity. Being the naïve person that I was, I prayed that my Psychopath would see the error of his ways and have a fervent desire to become a better person for the sake of our child. When I informed my Psychopath of my pregnancy he told me that he loved me but was not in love with me. My Psychopath said that he was in love with Bea and that he wanted to marry her. He subsequently suggested that I terminate my pregnancy, but I refused. He then began to alienate me publicly absolutely refusing to acknowledge my presence while at work. Each day thereafter, I had to muster the strength to return to work where I would see the vile disgusting monster that maliciously infected me with HSV-2 as my belly began to swell with the fruit of his seed. Once it was evident to my co-workers that I was pregnant, rumors began to circulate throughout the office that my Psychopath was the father of my unborn child.
My Psychopath attempted to quash these rumors by adamantly denying that he ever had an intimate relationship with me to anyone that would listen. He then attempted to deflect suspicion from himself by falsely claiming that another co-worker had actually impregnated me. Much like the protagonist Hester Prynne in Nathaniel Hawthorne’s book The Scarlett Letter, I was subsequently ostracized by everyone. This crushed me emotionally as I had never been unfaithful to my Psychopath. Then when I was six months pregnant, I received yet another devastating blow: my unborn child was diagnosed with a rare congenital defect (Dandy Walker).
I subsequently sank into a deep depression and I reached out to my Psychopath for solace, but he only offered me a cold shoulder in return. Three months later when I arrived at the hospital to have our child, I called my Psychopath because I desperately wanted him to be there to witness her birth firsthand. When my Psychopath answered the phone he callously asked, “what are you calling me for?” and even though I told him, he never bothered to show up. Our child emerged with a number of medical problems and had to be transported to a specialized hospital within hours of her birth. She remained hospitalization in the NICU for six weeks before I was finally permitted to bring her home. For some bizarre reason, Bea felt the need to me that my Psychopath had visited our child while she was in the NICU, which the hospital staff had already told me. Bea further advised that my Psychopath informed her that he felt “numb” after seeing our child, who bears a striking resemblance to him, for the first time.
My Psychopath refused to sign our child’s birth certificate as he did not want his name to appear on the document. I filed child support documents so that I could at least receive some financial assistance from my Psychopath, if nothing else. Four months later when our daughter’s health insurance and first child support payment were deducted from my Psychopath’s paycheck, he was exposed to our co-workers as a liar. Bea refused to marry my Psychopath and eventually broke up with him. Shortly thereafter my Psychopath allowed his performance at work to suffer tremendously and as a result, he was terminated. My Psychopath has been “self-employed” ever since and is currently delinquent nearly $40,000.00 in his court ordered child & medical support for our child.
