The following checklist can help you decide if you or someone you know is being abused:

Embarrass or humiliate you in front of others?
Threaten to or physically hurt you, your children or pets?
Force or manipulate you into having sex, or sabotage your birth control?
Threaten you with physical harm or weapons, hurt you?
Threaten to have you deported or threaten to take your children away?
Make you feel afraid to disagree with them?
Anger easily when using drugs or alcohol?
Destroy your personal property?
Limit your access to money and credit cards? Not allow you to work?
Want to know where you are at all times?
Tell you not to see family or friends? Isolate you?

If you answered “true” to any of these questions, you may be a victim of domestic violence.  You are not to blame and you are not alone.

One in three women and one in four men will experience domestic violence in their lifetimes.

You do not have to face domestic violence alone.  You deserve help and help is available.
