Child Abuse By My Husband

by Katie
(Texas, USA)

I told a councler yesterday about all the lovely things my husband has done to me and the 2 instances my husband hurt my child. But the freakin councler acted like it was nothing, I think she thinks i am lying, why would i lie about this???? GOd i dont know what to do. My husband is in the military if i tell them they will take all his pay and ill be left on street, hes in iraq right now so there is no further threat for a year. Here are some of the things i told her yesterday. about 4 years ago when my daughter was a newborn i asked him to help me ( middle of the night), i asked 4 times on the 4th time he threw the lava lamp on changing table, Dont know if aimed at me, it hit the closet door and shattered every were cutting me on the leg, then i picked up my daughter went to call police he unplugged phone, tried to leave grabbed onto my daughter and would not let go and i struggled to hang onto her, didnt want her to get hurt so i let him have her. went upstairs and told the girl i knew up there she did nothing but let me sit there and cry. then when my daughter was 15 mon old my mom was over to help me with my newest addition and i was changing zoe's diaper, she was fighting me not letting me put her diaper on , my mom sad give her a little smack on but to get her attention and tell her to be still so you can change her diaper, so i did , she still fought , my husband was in room came over turned her to spank on but she turned , it landed on her stomac but hit her so hard there was a hand print for 4 hours after. My mom wanted to call cops , but we didnt know what to do. there is constant verbal abuse to both zoe and i for years. he throws things all the time punched a whole in wall. zoe is now 4 years . i was outside watering grass seed. he tied up zoe's hads behind her back , because she stole somthing. this was recent. I heard her crying came in and screamed at him cut it off her, wanted to call police , was more concerned for zoe , and I am scared of him, so i didnt call but God i wish i did. I told the councler all this and she had no reaction and said that my kids were out of control and that he probably was just trying to figure a way to get her to stop stealing things. SCREW THAT. WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH HER.
