    I need help

    I am in an abusive relationship and yet I find it hard to leave because of the fear of how am going to take care of my 2 children with no means of income as I haven’t gotten my work authorization. It’s so bad that I sometimes feel like harming myself but I really don’t want to leave my children

    RE: I need help

    Hi! I am SO sorry that you and your children are with this abuser, and though I have never been in your situation, I can certainly understand your fear.

    I have looked on the Internet to see if I could find any resources you could look into to help you, and I have found some. Please call any of the resources that you think would be appropriate for you. In one of the links, it talks about how to get out of an abusive relationship and places you can call. Please do so when you are safe to do it, i.e. when the abuser is nowhere around!

    The following link is by WomenLaw.org. On the first page, you can select the state you live in to show the resources in that state. This appears to be a good site that can connect you to people who can help.

    Please do contact any of these quickly so that you and your babies can leave and be safe! Don't do anything without a plan, which is what I'm sure you can get help with. Call the National Domestic Violence Hotline number above and see what they have to say and what you can do to be safe!

    Protect your children!
