I've been in a relationship with my 2.5 year old father for 5 years. It's never been a good relationship. For the first 3 years he was physically abusive. I left him and took our daughter. He promise to stop hurting me so I came back. Now we live with his mom and step dad. Both him and his mom belittle me about not having a job. I take care of the house and our daughter. I can't get a job because I don't trust him or his mom to watch her. They both are alcoholics. I've told him if he didn't stop emotionally abusing me I would take our daughter and leave. He threatens me with calling the cops and saying I'm a drug addict. I'm not he has forced me to smoke weed. Any help is much appreciated

Being in an abusive is definitely very emotionally draining. I'm so sorry you feel trapped. It must be disheartening having him and his mother belittle you. You sounds so strong and I know you want what is best for your daughter. The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence has some really helpful information. http://www.ncadv.org/need-help/get-help.
They also have a free hotline you can call. I hope they can give you more specific advice! I'll be praying for you and your daughter. Stay strong! :)

Hi Sara,
My heart goes out to you. You seem to be a very strong lady to put up with something like that. I am sure abusing of any kind is not good, be it physical or mental. But from what you share, it is definitely not a good place for you or even your daughter to grow in. She is learning and watching everything around her and you don't want her to learn what she is actually witnessing right now. Also you surely cant trust them to take care of your daughter while you away at work. You might want to seek some help here. I am not sure what kind of help is available, or if there are any shelter homes for moms that can accommodate you temporarily or if you can talk to your family if they are here. Wish you all the best... Take care yourself. You are truly strong, remember this....!
