    One of my friends, her boyfriend is not only into drugs but he beats her too. Several occassions she has ended up in hospital after he beat her, and one time because he had OD'ed her.

    Havent spoken to her for about six months now, heard about her from a mutual friend the other day, apparently she is 4 mths pregnant and is living with her mum now.

    I'm just so glad she has got away from the boyfriend. Its not the type of environment you should be bringing a child into.

    She'll be in my prayers tonight and my thoughts while I sleep.

    Prayers on the way. I just thank the lord she is away from him, now we really have to pray that she will STAY away from him.
    For some reason a lot of women that are in a relationship like that can not seem to get out of it. :pray: :pray: Here is to her standing her ground and staying safe along with the baby.

    thanks everyone.

    lori you are dead right, I hope she stays away for good and I hope he wants nothing to do with the baby.

    When I asked her why she was staying with him, she said 'He loves me. Who else will love me if I leave him?'. She's never had very high self esteem.

    My thots and prayers are with you and your friend, such a tragedy that she has endured the abuse, even more so now that there is a child involved, I hope she gets through this and knows that "his" kind of love is NOT love at all.

    I can almost guarantee he'll "want the baby", it's what he will use to continue to control her. She's going to have to find a "backbone" if she has any hope of surviving that maniac.

    After 17 years of marriage to an abusive alcoholic (he hid his "true self" in the beginning), I'm the poster child of the "battered wife syndrome". She has to stop imagining life "how it could be... if only he'd stop...(fill in the blank)". She has to be made to see what life is like right now! Because it's not going to get any better.

    But, if she is strong enough to stay the course she will find someone who loves her. I was sure I would be forever single after ex-abuser, but then I met DH and got another chance. Tell her, the best revenge is to "live well". And that's exactly what I'm doing! :wahoo:

    Di is exactly right, both my sister and my mom are currently in relationships that they should both get out of. You might have to help her get back on her feet.
