STORY ABOUT A YOUNG ASIAN GIRL IN THE 80S CAUGHT UP IN DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND MENTAL ABUSE.
Hi my name is Farin I am 43, separated with three kids. This is a story about my life; what it was like growing up as a young Asian Muslim girl in the 1980s. What a culture shock I had when I first went to Pakistan and how I ended getting married which was arranged, and had my fairy tale wedding. That’s where the fairy tale ends and problems start. How people change so much just because the relationship has changed.
It is also about how the domestic violence came about and how difficult it was to get up and leave. Due to all the stress from the marriage I have a lot of medical problems. I have had a Catheter Ablation which means I had a faulty node burnt off in my heart to stop it going fast I have had slipped disc, and at that time I couldn’t stand or walk and has left me with nerve damage pain in my left leg all the time. I have hearing problems, asthma and fibromyalgia to name a few.
