It has been well documented that an abusers next step after choking is murder. Your boyfriend is one very small step away from taking your life. Please don’t ever go back to him, and find a therapist to try and understand why you are struggling with this. You deserve so much better.

Especially with his foot on her neck. That bothers me somehow even more than if he put his hands on her neck. it’s such a dominance move

Putting your foot on someone's neck isn't a dominance move, it's a kill move. You don't do that unless you want them to stop breathing.

That’s what I was thinking. If your head is on the floor you are down why would he step on your neck. He could have killed her.
