First of all, you need to get out of your situation now! It's not okay that he beat you again, not okay. Please look in your phone book and call a Women's Shelter. You need to get to a safe place. Please do this.

And, there is always hope.

With Anna's precious help i don't know what else to say other than: you are much more important to yourself right now..You are what you got to live with..there won't be other chance, don't live your life being treated bellow a queen..ok?..that's the way you should be treated..My mom taught me to treat a woman with respect, if he doesn't know what that is, please don't let him keep destroying you..It's a crime..And you are a child of God, there's nothing wrong with you...You will shine on your own, i am sure..just take that step..

((((alone))))

Has your sponsor gotten back to you yet? Oh, I hope so.

I'm not in a situation quite like yours right now, but perhaps the relapses have something to do with the feelings of hopelessness, fear, etc. that you're experiencing while in that relationship?

Years ago, I had myself convinced I loved someone who hit me. Just once, but he made me feel horrible in other ways, too. Now I can recognize that it wasn't love but fear of being alone.

Anyway -- I hope things change for you... and soon.

Good luck and let us know how you are, later, ok?
