Psychiatry & Psychology--General/Trapped


I have been with my fiancée for over a year now. when we first got together he was sweet and charming and ever extremely protective over me. he wouldn't let me out of his sight for anything. we got engaged after only 2 weeks, I love him. I have realized though very quickly that he was a habitual liar, he kisses everyones butt but behind the scene I get yelled at and called names and what a bitch I am. after this he says he is sorry but I shouldn't be doing this that or the other. most of the time I don't have phone priveleges and cant go 45 minutes south to see any of my family, they hate me now. I just moved in my little sister and although I cannot have babies anymore hes always going on about having one. he has occasionally hit me yes I know its abuse, I have tried to get away but he physically stops me and I cant call the cops on him because almost all of his family works for them he reminds me of this anytime we fight. I recently found out he is doing krank again but he won't stop. anymore I don't want to live, is there anything I can do, or do I have to kill myself. because lord knows that he will kill me if I do get away because he will find me, he always has.

You need to run away.  There are women's shelters that will take you with this story. You should call an abused women's hotline and find resources. If you don't run away now, you don't have to worry about killing yourself, since he will do it for you at some point in the near future.
