FEAR

I am living in fear and SO SCARED!!!

I have one question for anyone reading this?  Is anyone really listening, and does anyone really care about those of us, like myself, who have been abused??? Because it seems like no one cares…

Do I matter?  Our system makes me feel like I don’t matter…

Do you have any idea what it is like living in pain and in fear after I was sliced open by my former husband…and he was not arrested!!!

It always seems like these abusive men get off for the sole reason that they can, because no one cares that abuse of women is occurring.  I am in hiding, because I fear what he will do to me, and fear that I will be dead… Will someone care then, if I am dead?  It seems like nothing will be done to protect me…by a system that is supposed to protect me.  I cry every night, because I am so scared….so scared….so scared that he will kill me like he promised to….. I have been beaten, my neck and arms, back and legs with bruises, and knife marks from his numerous attacks, that caused severe pain, yet he was not arrested, because he is a cop.  I do the best to keep my head up…and pray for God to protect me, as He is the only one who will……
