In her note, Amaker writes how her boyfriend “went straight psychotic” and beat her for ten hours.

She writes, “He had planned it out; I was supposed to die.”

She escaped and spent four days recuperating in a hospital, while the man was charged with six felonies by a grand jury.

She also writes, “I don’t generally record videos of myself but it was the only thing I wanted to do in the hospital. I insisted – it felt important and a small triumph to make something, salvage anything from my shipwrecked heart.”

Amaker shared the video with the Facebook page for the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
