Although some signs and symptoms of violence in the home are obvious, some might be more subtle — especially those that affect a woman's psyche and not her body. A woman might be a victim if she:

  • has bruises, cuts, burns, scars or other damage to her skin (and claims that she had an accident)

  • has broken bones

  • talks about feeling afraid of her partner

  • talks about her partner's anger or unpredictable behavior

  • goes out less often and becomes isolated from friends and family

  • never seems to have enough of her own money

  • receives endless phone calls or text messages from her partner, who demands to know where she is and what she is doing

  • has chronic health problems that result from stress (such as stomachaches, headaches or insomnia)

  • is depressed

  • cries frequently

  • seems constantly irritated or anxious

  • An abusive relationship can bring a lot of harm to you. It also has a big effect on your kids.
