I left my emotionally/verbally abusive husband today after a rather harsh fight last night. Both last night during the fight and then a few times this morning as I was getting ready to leave, he eluded to killing himself. He said he is so depressed and he can't go through this depression alone. This is the seventh time I have left him (I know, that's a whole other subject) and I am through with it all, so I am not taken in by this, but I am wondering if I should alert someone that he's said this? Do you think I or our son is in danger, too?
