Hello, I've been trying to formulate what to say and how to get there for a while now. I've been married to my husband for 12 years, some of it is okay but most of it consists of me walking on eggshells and being screamed at. He told me before we got married that he was a Christian, then two years in came out and told me he had been lying all along. He never believed. He has always been verbally abusive to me, but it slowly has progressed to him tossing things at me, or like tonight, smashing a hard pillow into my face/head. He is threatening to kill my cats if I don't get rid of one ect. I have a very dear friend who kinda knows what's going on and I will be speaking to her tomorrow on the phone. I need some prayers and help please, on how to get the ball rolling to get me and my cats safe. I'm not sure when I will bring this up to him, but please pray for me. The reason I did not leave sooner is I fear for my cats safety if i go someplace. Family is an option also, my family and i are very close. Thank you, God bless.
