I, too, was in an abusive relationship (physical) and realize in retrospect had I turned to one of the local churches they would have given me a safe place to stay until things could be sorted out. One of the sad facts of being in such a relationship is the lack of self-esteem it takes to make positive moves, but if you can't do it for yourself at least do it for your children. Many churches have programs and places to stay for you and your kids, and respect your right to privacy by not telling your spouse. The common theme for these programs is they don't care what religion you follow, they just want to help. Please call a church- if they don't have a program they can direct you to one. One of the very sad parts of bipolar disorder (and I write as one) is the total lack of insight we have about our illness. It is not until we decide for ourselves that we truly want to get better that we get on that road, no arguement from our loved ones can force us. I wish you all the best and hope you let one of God's servants help you- it is what that have dedicated their lives to do. Take care, Judy
