Welcome @pink98 to After Silence.  I’m sorry for what brought you here but I’m happy you are here reaching out for support.  Good job taking this step in your healing process.  You are not alone and what happened to you wasn’t your fault.  I'm sorry to hear you are still being abused.  If you are in the US you can contact RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network). 

https://www.rainn.org/

They have a free helpline and online chat.  I don't know who your abuser is but this sounds like a case of domestic violence, in which case you could try searching for domestic violence helplines and services.

Take your time exploring and post when you are ready.  If you have any questions feel free to message me. 

Edit- I almost forgot, we also have a list of crisis resources here:

Welcome to After Silence! I'm so sorry for the abuse you're enduring. I hope that you are able to look at some of the wonderful resources that 8888 mentioned and find some help. We are of course here to help you as well! But I'm hoping a more concrete resource can help you get out of your current situation. We are all here supporting you and backing you up!

Hi, pink98, and welcome! :wave: I’m sorry to hear you’re still in an abusive relationship. Do you have any supportive friends or family around that could help? Are you able to call law enforcement or are you able to leave and get to shelter or other safe place? Your situation is a scary one to be in. You can message me if you need to talk. You’re not alone. Sitting with you and safe hugs, if okay. :console:

Hi pink,

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am so sorry you are in an abusive relationship. It is not your fault and we know how hard it can be. You are not alone, we are here for you. The rainn.org site that @8888 recommended is a good place to start. You have our support, without question. You are not alone. 

Wishing you the best, as you figure these things out and start a new journey in healing.

Mary
