          If You Are Being Abused

          March 20, 2009

          • Call the police.
          • Avoid becoming isolated and confide in someone.
          • Do not feel shame and know that no one has the right to hit or control you with fear.
          • Know that there is no excuse for abuse, it is not your fault and you are not alone.
          • Keep a record (including pictures if possible) and hide it carefully.
          • Consider ending the relationship as soon as possible.
          • Develop a safety/exit plan that does not include confronting your abuser:
          1. Know emergency numbers.
          2. Keep spare house and car keys and a suitcase with essentials hidden but accessible.
          3. Know where you can stay in an emergency.
          4. Hide key documents and some emergency money
          5. Work out a distress signal-system with a friend or loved one.
