OK so i am totally not happy with where i am at, but if i decide to move i lose a lot of financial support from nicks family. Aunt helps me with Emilee's clothing and Great-grandma help me with money to get gas so i can go to school, and Grandpa lets me use his car to get around. If i leave i lose all of that and then how am i suppose to take care of my daughter, let alone get to school and my externship which starts in November. Plus i have no where to move to. I could move to my moms but they don't really have the space for me and my brother and his girlfriend are moving into a one bedroom apartment so they wont has space either. On top of everything i am afraid to leave because N can get really violent and he has threatened to kill me the last three times i have hinted at leaving. He is good with his daughter sometimes but his short temper makes me not trust him to take care of her. I cant afford for her to go to daycare full time once i start working but i also cant leave it to him to take care of her. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Say you have a dr appointment or something, borrow Grandpa's car, and go.

If anyone has threatened to kill you.... you MUST leave. Do not hint at leaving. Do not give him any inkling at all that you are going anywhere. The next time he is going to be out of the house for a few hours.... you pack a bag for you and your baby and you just leave. Go to a shelter, the police station, your mom's, whatever, where ever, but get out before he does serious harm to you and your baby. TELL someone EVERYTHING that is happening with him. Do it. Now. Please.
