: 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 scared.
: : 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.
: : Robert
I know that you are in danger, especially if you don't get away from this man. If you stay, you are likely to be further abused, maybe killed. You have to get to a phone, call 911, get emergency assistance. There is someone who will come to your rescue and find a shelter or a safe haven for you.
If you don't make any effort to get away from your husband, you are enabling him to continue his abuse of alcohol and you! You are running out of options. Unless you have a close friend to assist you, you must find the strength and the courage within yourself. I am praying for you to get the help that you need to leave your husband and start a new life.
Peace & Love,
