I wish I knew...there's a stigma and the bull **** philosophy that it the women wouldn't be in that type of position if she didn't want to be. When I was in that type of situation I found out quick that I was on my own. If you need anybody to talk to sweetie, I'm here. :-)
I don't have kids but at the time I had pets that I pulled through for. It's hard. Just take one day at a time and be thankful that your out of the immediate danger. My thing happened 2008. It shaped me so much andI I still don't really trust anybody...but the guy got what he deserved and is long gone so at least I know he can't get to me anymore.
thank you God for being good to this woman - you are still alive and are breathing - you have been blessed to get through your horrific situation
oh you're welcome :)
I had to help myself and I am stronger for it
I have been there also with 2 children
You already are a surviver just stay strong
because say you got two black eyes, then everyone knows you've already been told twice.
For men, it is incredibly hard. Even though the USA's CDC recently found that 52% of victims are male, there is huge stigma for battered men and virtually no support from government nor charity. In many countries, a man is best NOT going to the police because he is quite likely to be arrested or ejected from his house despite being the victim.<br />
For women, contact your local government or do a web search and you should find someone to talk to, at least. You also can go direct to the police and expect to be believed, and helped.
It was difficult for me because my ex was a cop.
I was just to scared to stay...the only help I could find was my doctor. He bought me a bus ticket out of town and gave me a little money for a motel room.
If your referring to support of others ,I would think they are leery to get involved knowing both parties . If your talking getting out that's easy leave when the person is not home. There are always shelters ,safe places for abuse victims .
How sad for you ,I would contact your local government this should not be so hard for you to get out . I wish I could help you ,If you would like and are in the US ,I will contact the local police and file a complaint as a concerned neighbor . I do hope you find help soon ,WTF is wrong with the services in your area is beyond me .Please try to get a restraining order .Though this means nothing at times to a enraged animal that would do such a thing . Prayers and hugs for you to be helped ASP !
