He hit me again. This time, hard. I’ve had to stay home from work for days to hide the bruise. I’m scared of what he’ll do to me if I leave him. The threats he makes….but I can’t stay. I don’t even have anywhere to really go. But I can’t endure it any more. I don’t feel like myself any more. Just afraid all of the time. I haven’t told anyone because I know he’ll find out. I’ve never felt so, so trapped. Yes…sometimes I do feel like he could kill me if he got angry enough.
