Inside this Book – ‘Only a few blocks out of the subway station, bloody thoughts descended: Walk into the path of that cab speeding up Lexington Avenue. Step in front of that oncoming bus. These were not voices in my head; they were rogue thoughts, terrible thoughts that I did not know how to control. If you passed me on the street, you would have seen a tired, twenty- something woman. You’d probably think I was hung over or hadn’t eaten a vegetable in months, the latter being mostly accurate. I was tall, usually wearing a baggy shirt over a long black skirt and my worn-out steel-toed Doc Martens. My hair, formerly long and blonde and flowing halfway down my back, was chopped at my ears and had faded to a brown that looked mostly gray in store-window reflections—the result of an ill-advised trip to the drugstore and a three-dollar bottle of hair dye. I rounded the corner on 82nd Street, past the brownstones with their bay windows and heavy doors, past P.S. 290, where I rarely saw any children. I climbed the steps to my first-floor apartment, unlocked two security doors, turned three more locks, then shuffled in, finally alone. I bolted the door behind me. My apartment smelled like sour milk and dust. For a first apartment out of college, the place was fine: two small, stacked rooms connected by a steep wooden staircase. Upstairs, exposed brick stood opposite a small corner kitchen. Downstairs, they’d carved out just enough space for a small bathroom and bedroom, forever dark and damp, the windows five feet off the floor, allowing only a view of feet and legs ambling by.
Inside this book –Dog Medicine PDF Book by Julie Barton – By then I had a lot of bruises. They were on my arms, mostly. My brother’s favorite place to hit me was on my upper arms, but I also had marks on my legs where he would kick me or toss a chair in my path. The hitting came sporadically and usually when we were alone. When my parents weren’t around he’d hiss, “Loser. Look at you and your ugly face.” He’d fake a punch and laugh when I flinched. Those fake punches left me nervous and jangled. Many older brothers are mean and unhappy. I didn’t think it was out of the ordinary that mine called me names: bitch, whore, loser, idiot, ugly, weirdo, fuck-face. And he hit me. Hard. He spit in my face. He pushed me down. He stepped on me. He pulled my hair. He chased me with knives. I didn’t understand that Clay was struggling. I thought that this was how all older brothers behaved. I didn’t know that our father’s long hours at work affected him, or that our mother’s emotional disconnectedness left him adrift. I just knew that he hated me, that I could do nothing right in his presence, that I was unsafe in my own home.
