Tammi says she suffered multiple injuries
including a concussion, a broken vertebra in her neck and a crushed finger when her former fiancé, Chris, assaulted her with a meat tenderizing hammer two years ago. She says she spends most of her time inside her house because she hasn’t been able to move past the trauma. TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: I'm living a nightmare!
“I feel like a shell, a lot of times,” she says, adding “I’m very afraid because I don’t know how to communicate anymore.”
Tammi’s 19-year-old daughter, Taylor, says she was also affected by the attack on her mom. “I feel guilty for what happened. Just when I see her, sometimes it just hurts because I remember what she looked like that night.”
