Patient discussion about domestic

Q. What should I do if I think there is a domestic violence in my building? I think there is a case of domestic violence going on in with my neighbors. I have heard a man hitting a woman and a woman screaming, things being thrown, etc. This type of event will happen several times a week, lasting all day. I'm not sure where my place is on this, since I don't know them, and I don’t even know what neighbor it is, but I hate just sitting here doing nothing while a man is beating a woman. I don’t know what to do. Please help.

A. I have been on the receiving end of domestic violence. I have only been out for about 1yr and 3 months. I almost lost my children due to the issues. The best thing you can do is report it. Even though the person will never leave the situation until either someone intervenes, or they almost lose their life. They can get possibly die from it. domestic issues tend to escalate instead of subsiding. Also there is the problem that the person in the situation may have been threatened and their self esteem is usually in the gutter. I wasnt allowed out of my house and when I did go out I had to look at the ground. If my boyfriend thought that i was looking at someone male or female I usually got hit.
