Okay, so I know I am going to sound like an asshole here - but I really need to get this off my chest. I have been married to Kevin for 8 yrs now - 8 yrs of hell!. We had a physical fight last night, and I know I should have called for intervention, but my daughter's 7th bithday party is on Saturday, and I am not going to be the one that ruins it for her - I don't want her birthday to be something that she associates the worst day of her life with. Granted it wasn't our "worst" fight, but I am walking around with physical indications of our alteraction. I am writing this, because I am concerned about tomorrow's meeting. I have a session with the lady from Domestic violence crisis center and I have every intention of lying if asked about the marks on my face. I just need to get by until Monday. I am going to check the girls and I into the shelter on Monday. I just can't do it before then for my kid's sake. I know not everyone will understand that, but I really can't let my daughter down. I'm just worried about what they are going to do tomorrow. This lady is trained in DV and I am afraid that if she knows I am lying it is going to be used against me and they will push the issue and inevitably take away my children. I absolutly hate this man and can no longer do this, but at the same time I don't want my daughter growing up thinking that it was somehow related to her.... Any advice would be helpful. What should I do?
