Jordan Worth, 22, took advantage of her vulnerable boyfriend but is now serving a seven-and-a-half-year prison sentence. Luton Crown Court heard that she: Stabbed him Poured boiling water on him Took control of his Facebook page Banned him from their bed Told him what clothes he should wear Hit him with blunt objects Failed to help him get hospital treatment The couple met in 2012 when they were both 16 years old, but from the beginning she started to control him. It started with telling him what he should wear and eventually she took control of his Facebook telling him which friends he could see and when. Most of the abuse took place at their home in Stewartby, Bedfordshire, where she wouldn’t allow him into their bed for nine months. Worth’s boyfriend was vulnerable as a result of a build-up of water on his brain Luton Crown Court was told that the victim, who is not being identified, suffered from hydrocephalus, which is caused by a build-up of fluid inside the skull and made him vulnerable. The bullying culminated in her using objects to strike him, wounding him with a knife and then failing to get him any medical help. Her ex-boyfriend’s misery came to an end in June when neighbours called police to the couple’s home in the early hours after hearing shouting. The ambulance crew noted injuries to his hand, burns to arms and legs that were being self-treated with cling film. There was also cling film round his ankles, and a hand wound that was bleeding. He was taken to hospital where it was discovered he had second and third degree burns that left permanent scarring and ‘5 per cent of his total body surface was scalded.’ Neighbours added they had often heard the couple arguing and the victim was seen on occasions with black eyes, a limp and with his arm in sling. During one incident Worth was seen at window ‘armed’ with a screwdriver or hammer, the court was told. Worth was later arrested and admitted charges of controlling or coercive behaviour in an intimate relationship, wounding with intent and causing grievous bodily harm with intent. The court heard university graduate Worth, who is now in a new relationship, had two sides and came from a loving and supportive family and had previously carried out voluntary work. She was made the subject of a restraining order which prevents her from contacting her ex for an indefinite period. Worth had discouraged her former partner from contacting his family during the abusive relationship. Judge Nic Madge said: ‘She accepts that she has in the past, on a number of occasions, used blunt objects and implements to strike him and that he suffered injuries as a result of her doing so. ‘She admits using boiling or hot water to cause injury to him.’ ----------------- Hydrocephalus is making life quite miserable. I know. Sudden movements, jumping, running, even turning the head quickly, or sneezing and coughing, all cause a stabbing headache so bad, it makes you flinch. I know. I had it from grade 3 on, after a teacher shot a soccer ball at my head with full power, when I did not pay attention in Phys Ed. Surprisingly, when I had an aneurism in my early 30's, during the operation they poured heavy antibiotics into my skull and fixed the perforated and inflamed meninges. The Hydrocephalus was defeated and I have not had any recurrence. I DO sympathize with the poor guy. Living with Hydrocephalus is more than hard enough. I learned one thing, though: High altitude reduces the pain. That is why I spent every weekend in the mountains. DearWebby Tech Support Pits From: Latreesha Re: Don't use the word "Slave" Using the word Slave is racist and not acceptable in a legitimate publication. Latreesha Dear Latreesha, just because YOU are a racist, that does not mean people can't use the word "Slave" in the way it has been used for many thousands of years BEFORE your ancestors got an all expense paid cruise to America. Slaves are mentioned in the Old Testament and the Torah and in ancient Egyptian and Greek writings. 650,000 Republicans died fighting for freeing the slaves in America, so take your nonsense and stuff it where the sun don't shine! When it comes to hard drives, there is no other word suitable to identify and describe the relation between Master drive and Slave drive, and nobody with an IQ bigger than what a squashed toad has, will ever consider changing that. The Master drive is the boot-up and main drive, that launches the operating system, which then controls all the Slave Drives. Have FUN DearWebby Classic! NEW POLICY IN HEAVEN It was getting a little crowded in Heaven, so God decided to change the admittance policy. The new law was that, in order to get into Heaven, you had to have a real bummer of a day when you died. The policy would go into effect at noon the next day. The next day at 12:01am, the first person came to the gates of Heaven. The Angel at the gate, remembering the new policy, promptly said to the man, "Before I let you in, I need you to tell me how your day was going when you died." "No problem," the man said. "I came home to my 25th floor apartment on my lunch hour and caught my wife half naked. She appeared to be having an affair, but her lover was nowhere in sight. I immediately began searching for him. My wife was yelling at me as I searched the entire apartment. Just as I was about to give up, I happened to glance out onto the balcony and noticed that there was a man hanging off the edge by his fingertips! The nerve of that guy! Well, I ran out onto the balcony and stomped on his fingers until he fell to the ground. But wouldn't you know it, he landed in some trees and bushes that broke his fall and he didn't die. This ticked me off even more. In a rage, I went back inside to get the first thing Could get my hands on to throw at him. Oddly enough, the first thing I thought of was the refrigerator. I unplugged it, pushed it out onto the balcony, and tipped it over the side. It plummeted 25 stories and crushed him! The excitement of the moment was so great that I had a heart attack and died almost instantly." The Angel sat back and thought a moment. Technically, the guy did have a bad day. It was a crime of passion. So, the Angel announced, "OK, sir. Welcome to the Kingdom of Heaven," and let him in. A few seconds later the next guy came up. The Angel said, "Before I can let you in, I need to hear about what your day was like when you died." "No problem," said the second man. "But you're not going to believe this. I was on the balcony of my 26th floor apartment doing my daily exercises. I had been under a lot of pressure so I was really pushing hard to relieve my stress. I guess I got a little carried away, slipped, and accidentally fell over the side! Luckily, I was able to catch myself by the fingertips on the balcony below mine. But all of a sudden this crazy man comes running out of his apartment, starts cussing, and stomps on my fingers. Well, of course I fell. I hit some trees and bushes at the bottom which broke my fall so I didn't die right away. As I'm laying there face up on the ground, unable to move, and in excruciating pain, I see this guy push his REFRIGERATOR, of all things, off the balcony. It falls the 25 floors and lands on top of me, killing me instantly." The Angel is quietly laughing to himself as the man finishes his story. "I could get used to this new policy," he thinks to himself. "Very well," the Angel announces. "Welcome to the Kingdom of Heaven," and he lets the man enter. A few seconds later, a third man comes up to the gate. The angel says, "Please tell me how you died." The third man says, "OK, picture this. I'm naked, hiding inside a refrigerator."

>From Dale I had just moved from an apartment to a house in the same small town. One day at the grocery store, I used the last of my personalized checks bearing my old address. The cashier examined the document and asked if everything on it was correct. I assured her that it was, and she started to put the check in the cash drawer. But then she inquired again if everything was accurate. "Why do you ask?" I responded. "Because," she replied, "my husband and I moved to this address last week." Then she paused while she kicked the 911 floor button a few times, and then continued: "and I don't remember seeing you at breakfast."

This will usually startle the dogs enough to stop the fighting. Breaking up a dog fight with your hands can be very dangerous as you are liable to get bit or scratched. When I go to the dog park I bring a half gallon tupperware container full of water. It's been enough to break up any altercation between dogs. Most dog parks have a faucet so I can refill it if I need to.

___________________________________________________ As paramedics, my partner and I were dispatched to check on a 92-year-old man who had become disoriented. We decided to take him to the hospital for evaluation. En route, with siren going, I questioned the man to determine his level of awareness. Leaning close, I asked, "Sir, do you know what we're doing right now?" He slowly looked up at me, then gazed out the ambulance window. "Oh," he replied, "I'd say about 50, maybe 55." ___________________________________________________
