Thank you for your kind words. I've tried calling the police in the past, but my mom has taken the phone out of my hands and hung up before the call goes through. Although for most of my life my mother has been the primary bread winner and dad has "done things to help around the house", Mom refuses to leave him because she is convinced he would get everything and leave her with nothing. She refuses to leave, and whereas it breaks my heart to think that she believes she's stuck, I don't think I could ever convince her to walk out. Which makes me focus my concern on my brother. He doesn't have the option to leave this environment unless my mom goes because he nowhere else to go. Both continually make up excuses for why dad's behavior is all right. I just feel stuck.
