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.

OP, stepping on your neck is the real boyfriend. Him being nice to you is a mask.

You will be much safer without him. The farther away the better. You deserve to be with someone who treats you with respect.

I wish someone told me this 25 years ago. Man I let the bad stuff slide because I focused on the good. The good, was a lie.
