I lied to my son. He called me in the midst of me being abused by my boyfriend. My boyfriend grabbed my phone when it was ringing and threw it. He accidentally hit the answer button and my son (15) on the other end heard a terrifying scene. When it was over I called my son. He was crying hysterically. I assured him it was just an ordinary disagreement nothing to be alarmed about. I feel terrible that I lied but didn't want him to be upset and worried.

    Not sure how old your son is, but sometimes youngins need protection from the truth. That is your decision as a mother. As for the man in your life... errrrr man is a stretch.. you should consider sitting down and rethinking something you understand to be an abusive relationship. Noone deserves that! Best of luck. -robert

    well i know that women like yourself just don't get that if a guy hits you he DOES NOT LOVE YOU! i don't know why you like being manhadled/victimized but you do. just keep in mind that this may seem like nothing but it can end in tragedy if he hits you too hard in the wrong spot you will die. you should treasure life as it is a gift:)



    and i know about women like you cuz i had a friend who was like that and one day she confessed to me that she likes it, it gets her lil panties wet when her man choked her up against the wall.

    Dear Veronica I do value my life and women like you can't possibly begin to understand. Sorry that you are so judgemental on the subject of abuse.

    I do not like it at all I hate it. That is a lie on your friends part to say she likes to be abused. But sometimes there are resons why women or men stay in situations that are not healthy. And not knowing what that would be is not something that should be judged.

    how can you speak for her? you don't know her. you are just mad because not everyone throws women like you a pity party aka attention. masochism is a narcissistic trait

    If you feel bad about lying to your son, you need to come clean or the guilt is going to stay with. I would suggest getting out this relationships, if you can't do it for your safety do it for your son. Because once your boyfriend's done abusing you, he'll start abusing your son. If this boyfriend wont leave you alone get a restraining order. If you can't come to the police with this then leave the relationship, you love your son right? Do it for him, you wouldn't want this to be happening to him.
