He has been abusive at times. I dont think he would hurt the kids physically. But wat is going on has to be hurting them mentally. I do have family but he has a way of getting to them and I dont want them to have to go through this also. I cant go see anyone. or make phone call with out explaining wat I am doing. Most of his abuse is emotional. I have no way to support myself and he has all the bills to the point of disconnect so I would have nothing if he is not around. I have enough gas in the car if it runs to go to the gas station, no money. I dont know where to turn. when I have tried to leave he has call the state on me saying stupid **** so they investigate child abuse.
