DanG Posted July 20, 2008 Share Posted July 20, 2008 I've been with my girlfriend for a year and a half. I can't get much information about it from her, but I know her last boyfriend hit her. I am the only one she has told, she didn't intend on telling me, it came out when she was drunk. She told me he would hit her if she did anything "wrong" and beat her up a couple times. I tried to bring it up with her after we had sobered up, but she just made me promise I wouldn't tell anyone. I have kept with my promise not to tell anyone, except anonymously here. I know it really affects her and it bothers me. When I was having a bad day yesterday I was already grouchy. My entertainment system is very complex and all the wiring is pretty crazy. She accidentally unplugged something making the TV not work. After my bad day all I wanted to do was relax and watch TV, so I was pretty annoyed. I wasn't mad at her, but I snapped a little bit. Her reaction really worries me because she wouldn't come near me or let me approach her. She kept a huge distance from me and was headed for the door. She started crying and shaking upcontrolably and it took her a long time to calm down after I told her it was ok and I wasn't mad. I think she needs help but she won't talk to me or anyone else about what happened to her. She is really upset that I know about it and won't let me bring it up ever. I know that her ex is a good friend of her family, so I think that is why she won't tell them. I have her trust and I really don't want to break it, but I think I should tell someone for her own good. I'm afraid that I risk losing her if I try to help her, but I don't want her have to live with this. Help?! Link to comment
