My story is long one, like other women in my situation. My husband has hit me too many times to count. Just last night, he called me a name that I would rather not repeat. Afterwards, he said "I'm sorry" in a way that even a fool wouldn't believe. The last time he hit was December 23, 2006. I was upset about him looking at pornography, which he always promises not to do, and he punched me in the side of my head so hard that I blacked out and when I "came-to" I had urinated all over myself. Since then, I have not been able to open my jaw more than 3/4". He refuses to let me go to the hospital, even though I promise him I won't tell them who did it. I want to leave, but how? I am a housewife with no real work skills, and have litterally no friends at all. He is all I know. Are those women's shelters an O.K. place to take a child? Will this hurt my son in any way? I don't want to keep him away from his daddy, as they are extremely close. Any advice on how to help him stop? Or on how I can leave him?
