: : He tells me he will kill me if I talk to the police. I don't have keys to the car or even a bank account anymore. I'm scared. I think he knows that I'm thinking of leaving. He made me quit my job. I think he may kill me.
: : : : My husband comes home drunk THREE nights a week and if everything isn't just ABSOLUTELY perfect he beats me up! I know I should leave him but I can't. I don't know why. I make up excuses for why I miss work so much. I hate living in this fear. Please help. I'm so scare!d.
You have got to get to a phone. Call 911. There will be someone who can protect you from your husband. I can do nothing more. You have to be brave enough to get away. If you stay with this man, you, likely, may wind up dead
: : : Dear Jane,
: : : I don't know where you live, what town that you are in. You have got to get away, get distance between you and your alcoholic husband now! Don't wait! Check the yellow pages of your local directory. There are services that will come to your immediate aid. Seek them out. Call a counselor, speak plainly about your problems. If there are any children, you have to be concerned with their safety and welfare as well as your own!
: : : File a report with the police.
