Woman is drugged and turned into sex slave by sociopathic partner

A woman has opened up about being drugged by her husband and waking up to another man raping her in front of a mirror as her partner watched on.

Mary - whose name has been changed to protect her identity - had been in a marriage she describes as 'beautiful' for 10 years - which ended on good terms - before the nightmare relationship began.

'I had come into contact with what can best be described as a sociopath, a predator, that feeds off inflicting terror and knows how to pick their victims,' she said in the book seen by the Brisbane Times.

Mary was naive because her previous relationship was loving and she knew no different.  

Mary, whose name has been changed to protect her privacy, shared her horrific account of the relationship in a new book titled Shattered to Shining published by Broken to Brilliant 

Mary's nightmare started when she met her future abuser at work. She was instantly drawn to him because of his sense of mystery and how much he loved his children.   

They began a relationship which they kept hidden from their coworkers. 

'One year later, I became a sex slave. He gained satisfaction in watching men rape me and would drive me around in the early hours of the morning asking men if they wanted to have sex with me.' 

Mary's life had reached crisis-point. She was psychologically trapped due to how much she loved him, and would always look for reasons to forgive him.  

As a result of her double life, she isolated herself from her family and friends and ended up having a son with her abuser.

After almost a decade of abuse at the hands of her partner, she eventually found the courage to leave him after telling her sister of her ordeal. 

Mary became homeless twice and was then forced to move back into the home of her abuser and her son. 

She was hospitalised twice for depression, attempted to take her own life and was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. 

Mary said her 'sociopathic' partner drugged her and took advantage of her frequently 

She has since shared her horrific account of the relationship in a new book titled Shattered to Shining published by Broken to Brilliant - an organisation aimed at helping survivors of abuse. 

The book features Mary's story along with nine other women and one man who also survived abusive relationships.

Mary said she has found that writing about her nightmarish ordeal has been therapeutic, but she found it hard to read the stories of other survivors.

'When people ask me 'why did you stay for so long?' now I can tell them, 'read my chapter and find out',' she said.
