First of all, I was in an abusive violent relationship and I was scared @ first to seek for help until I couldn't take rit anymore. I went to my family first they kind of new but I would always deny it. Talked to them and I reported him to the cops and I had a detective that was helping me through all of this. To make the ling story short don't waste anytime seriously get help I did @ the very end he was going to go to prison for what he did to me. But unfortunately he was a coward he ended his life @ the age of 28 he couldn't face his punishment. But I'm glad that I got help and I dont wish that upon anyone to go through that. I am now happily married and have the most wonderful husband in the world. Trust me the cops will help you in so many ways and your family.
Family and/or friends are your first choice to getting help out of an abusive relationship. They can give you a safe place to stay and help you get on your feet. The police can also help by keeping the abusive person away from you and contacting social services for further assistance.
OH MY :( Well like Rheada said, family and friends are always a first choice. I also recommend talking to a counselor or someone who you can really depend on and is there when help is needed most. If this has been a continuation, you might just want to consider talking to the police and finding a safe place to stay at till things ease down. I'm sorry to hear this, i hope things get better for you sneedshelp.

Why don't you also look up the Crisis Line in your area, and call... In Southwest Washington where I am from, for a long time there has been great stress on families because the timber jobs are gone.
If you are a woman especially, sometimes there is a whole framework in place for emergency shelter if needed (including Safe Houses), counseling if appropriate, and other 'stepping stones' to make a new life for yourself.
It is possible the services are not quite as good now because of the economic situation; but please do not be discouraged and keep at it until you and children if any are safe.
Tell someone you trust immediately and get out as fast as you can. Don't look back or think about it twice, it will only get WORSE! Value your life and if you have kids think about them too. VIP!!! LEAVE NOW!
Well first you should tell a family or close friend. Then you should leave that person! You have got to tell your self that, that isn't love. And what ever you do, DON'T GO RUNNING BACK TO THE PERSON!!!!!!
You should stop and think what's best for you. Do what you need to happen and what you can live with doing. Im not saying kill the guy, but mabye punish him. Not in the good way though the bad way. But not the good bad way which some people enjoy. The straight out bad way.
