I've been in an physically and emotionally abusive relationship for many years. I don't know why I have stayed. I had a son with him who is now 17 months old. The abuse continued in my early pregnancy and then stopped until after the birth. After the birth it was just emotional (saying nasty things and such...) but before christmas he hit me infront of my son. I just can't seem to get past it. I am VERY close to ending the relationsihp. He has begun constantly putting me down, is never nice to me. Every time he gets mad I go around trying to hide all my important items...phone, camera, etc...because he usually breaks something. I am VERY WORRIEDthat when I leave I will have to let my son see him unsupervied....I have NEVER left them alone together out of fear for his safety. I haven't filled any police reports, we have went to councling where he did admit to the councelor that he has/did hit me. Has anyone been in a similar situiation, or have any advice? thanks...
