Nowhere To Go

How can I leave, I have nowhere to go, and he know that, as he keeps drilling it into my head before and after he beats me. He tells me every single day that no one loves me, so I have nowhere to turn, and no one to turn to. I try to find help, but scared he will find out. What am I to do?!
Does anyone really care that I am beaten on a daily basis, at least once a day, if not more….?
Does anyone really care that he controls where I go and what I do……?
Does anyone really care that the law enforcement laughs at me when I ask for help?…..
Does anyone really care at all??????!!!!
What am I supposed to do? What is any abused woman supposed to do?
We take it, because we have nowhere to go……………..
