On February of 2013, Mark Pitta and I attended his nephew’s wedding. The morning of the wedding I woke up to a terrible burning feeling in the back of my throat. I knew I was coming down with something but I didn’t dare tell Mark. If I did he’d accuse me of making it up in order not to attend the wedding. I had learned that Mark Pitta neglects everyone but himself.
Even today, it’s embarrassing for me to admit that I spent the rest of my marriage walking on eggshells. I can count on one hand how many arguments Mark and I had where I knew what we were arguing about. Mark’s anger made him confrontational and I’m not one to fight.
What would you do if your spouse left without saying a word and went missing for a week? Maybe you know but when Mark Pitta disappeared in September of 2011, I had nothing but questions. We’d been married for less than a year so how could he possibly abandon me like this?
Yesterday’s post got me thinking about Mark Pitta’s addiction to illegal prescriptions and his alcohol abuse. This slowly unfolded throughout our marriage and it was too late when I realized he had serious problems.
