About a year and a half ago I decided to finally leave my alcholic common law husband. I would come home everyday to a house of horrors. My daughter always got home before me and her dad would interogate her about everything until I got home from work. At the same time his Mother was diagnosed with cancer that was terminal. We were extremely close to her and watcing her die was devasting to us all. During this time the police were called on many occasions due to my ex's drunken antics. He was very hurtful to us all and when his mother died he took her ashes and put them in a Texas mickey bottle, My daughter and I were heart broken by that. Once we moved he would leave her awful messages on her cell phone. After we moved I tried for a long time to get her some councilling but she refused. Now after all this time she is starting to see a counselor but everytime she comes home after her visit she seems in worse emotional state then before. She was so upset that she scratched her arms up and down until it was bleeding. I thought she had burned herself at first but she confessed to me what she had done. I'm really scared and I don't know what to do next. Any advice would be appreciated.
