If you think you are a victim of domestic abuse, you are not alone.

  • Discourage you from having relationships with family or friends?
  • Prevent you from working or going to school?
  • Criticize you for little things or blame you for everything that goes wrong?
  • Anger easily when using drugs or alcohol?
  • Control your finances and force you to account for the money you spent?
  • Make fun of you or humiliate you in front of others?
  • Destroy your property or sentimental items? (Criminal Mischief)*
  • Threaten to harm you or your children? (Criminal Threatening)*
  • Hit, punch, kick or bite you or your children? (Simple Assault)*
  • Use or threaten to use a weapon against you? (Criminal Threatening)*
  • Force you to have sex against your will? (Sexual Assault)*
  • Scare you in ways which can actually cause injury? (Reckless
    Conduct)*
  • Physically or by threat prevent you from leaving your home, car, etc.? (Interfering with Freedom)*
  • Break into your private home, office, etc? (Unauthorized Entry)*

If you answer yes to any, it is time to reach out to others for help.

A good place to ask questions is the Monadnock Center for Violence Prevention, 603-352-3782. You can call them 24 hours a day and someone will get back to you to answer any questions.

It is important to confide in someone you trust. If you have a friend or relative who cares about your safety, tell them about the abuse. Sharing a burden with someone often makes it feel lighter. If you have left an abusive relationship and are feeling lonely and are tempted to return - talk about it with a friend who knows the situation.

Don't do something, or get talked into doing something, that you don't feel good about. You are the only one who knows what is right and safe for you. You are the only one who knows if you're ready to leave your relationship.

You are not alone.

You are not alone.
