I just left an abusive relationship, and now I have nothing.
I filed a protection from abuse order against my ex, but he is currently on the run. The police have tried unsuccessfully for a month to serve him with papers on the restraining order, and because of these repeated failures, the court has dismissed the order. So in addition to having nothing which I can call my own, I also have no legal protection from him. I’m tired, scared, and feeling utterly defeated.
Everyone keeps telling me “You got out, that’s all that matters.” What’s the point of getting out, though, when he is still making me absolutely miserable? I survived his kicks and punches, his angry threats and accusations, the knives pressed to my throat… Only so he can run free and I can live in fear? The injustice of my situation is wearing me down.
No home, barely any clothes, no plan. I have no hope. I need advice, encouragement, anything to help get me through… At this rate, I don’t think I’ll make it.
