You say he's still threatening you and trashing your house...for goodness sake, report him to the authorities, and keep reporting him until something is done. He's not only bad news, he's extremely dangerous; he's already proven that. And so is his family! They condone violence against women. That's probably where he learned it. But you are still in danger, so reach out in your community for resources that are available to you. The Women's Domestic Violence Helpline in Western Australia is: 9223 1188 or 1800 007 339

And Andy, don't EVER believe that his behaviour is "out of character"...he is sadistically violent. I won't speculate about why, because what's most important here is your safety. Lean on your family for support (though I am asking what was your mother thinking when she dropped you off at his house, knowing full well how violent he was). And nurture your friendships. Your family and friends are your first line of defense, they are your support system. But first and foremost, do what you must in order to stay safe. Call the DV Helpline. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Men beating or abusing women I abhor
by: maurice

An Animal living with Animals: A brute, A beast, a sadistic maniac: Not human: Andy, get out of there, out of that relationship even if one could call it that: You are nobody's fool, you know and you mother/family know how abnormal this beast is: Men beating abusing women I certainly abhor: They are not men, they have given into their animalistic insticts and forgotten they are human: Andy: My question is How could his Father, his brother sit ever so idly by and know what that animal was doing to you just a wall or room away: GET MILES AWAY FROM HIM and his co-abusers of you and more so other women: He won't change, they won't protect you from him so get out of there: Never go back: You are a highly intelliegent young woman: you have your dignity as such: you deserve to be loved and cherished not beaten to pulp by any man or indeed woman: This man is mental, out of his mind after almost using his boot to deface you, break your bones in your gentle, tender body: Your body is beautiful: get out of ther and bring it back to that beauty by your gentle care of it: Darlene has given you encourageing words to begin with: Your Family and friends are your safeguarding and builder of your own self worth and esteem: Your Mother needs to be mother to you: How she could leave you back to that house after she knew you were fighting on the phone: He is a freak, nut case, controller of you: That is not human, not right, not love, not relationship, I don't deserve to be treated like his punch bag or kick boxing target; Get ou of there Andy: Surround yourself with human beings (normal) who'll value and respect you for who you truly are: great, gifted, tallented, I'M SPECIAL and I LOVE ME; Let your motto be after you make beautiful that body of yours: I CAN: I WILL: I MUST: Because I am WORTH it. Andy, now might not be the time to ask you, but I will anyways, Will you begin to have a healthy mind in a healthy body: Oh know how could he might be your re-action: I believe you life will open out and blossom if you do: mix with like-mided people your own age and gender and take part in sporting and cultural activities: widen your horizons and live your dreams, make the difference.
