I felt like I was living on a tight rope

“My wife and I were married for 12 years. In the beginning, there were good times, but as she began to drink more, she became emotionally abusive.  I felt like I was living on a tight rope.  I never knew what to expect when I got home each day.  I worried that she would make good on the threats she made to use the kitchen knife to kill me in my sleep or use it to cut her wrists.  It was a terrible way to live. You know, most people have trouble believing this can happen to a man like me.  I never thought I would be in this situation, but I don’t know what I would have done without the acceptance, support, and help I found at Prudence Crandall Center.”
