I have never asked for this kind of help before but I’m almost to the point of living in my car with my daughter to escape the abuse we are living in. My partner of 17 years is a severe alcoholic that has mentally and verbally abused our daughter and myself for the last 16 years. It has now escalated to financial abuse and physical abuse. Tonight was the last straw. I came home to him drunk and all I wanted was to talk to him about my day and he accused me of liking my boss because I told a story of something funny my boss said. The next thing I knew I was laying on the floor because he shoved me so hard I hit our kitchen island, then the floor. I hit my head and I think I was out for about 1 minute. When I finally regained my composure, I sat up to see him push my daughter down to the ground by her forehead because she wanted to check on me. I grabbed my keys and told my daughter to run to the car. I didn’t think about grabbing my purse. When I came back home the house was trashed. He was gone and my purse was emptied. He took my debit card and the $700 in cash I had to pay the current and past due balance for my daughters braces (I’m behind on payments because of him). I have a great job but when I have to pay for all the bills, groceries, maintenance on vehicles and all expenses for our daughter, I have nothing left and I’m back to living paycheck to paycheck again. That doesn’t include the money he steals from me. I want out. I have to get out. I have found a place to live but it’s $700 a month with a $700 deposit. I also have to pay deposits on my water and electricity as well as furnish my home as I am not taking anything but then are necessities like clothes, my deceased mothers things, my daughters things and my two cats. It took a lot for me to post this but I am fearful for my daughters safety, as well as my own. Please consider donating to my fundraiser. I’m so afraid that my daughter will have lifelong PTSD because of the hell we are living in. I have got to get her out of here and get her some help so maybe she can recover. Thank you for reading and be blessed.
