You are feeling like you are backed in a corner with no place to run. Your boyfriend's jealousy is out of control. I suggest you call your local domestic violence hotline, so they can get you out of this home to somewhere you can be safe. There are safe houses and shelters you can go to, and they can help you. You need to think of your unborn child's safety, as well. If he is abusive while you are pregnant, I can only imagine what he does when you are not pregnant! If necessary, get the police involved. You are in a dangerous situation. Get out now! And once you are out of there, seek out counseling that will help you regain some of the trust you have lost. Please write back, and let me know you are ok. I care. And don't give up...there are people out there who would love to help you get away from this horror you are in the middle of.
