    Domestic Violence Alert

    Domestic Violence Alert
    Thu Jun 3, 2004

    (HealthDayNews) -- It's a sad fact of domestic life that anyone can abuse someone they care about -- and many do.

    If you think your short fuse is a sign that you're at risk of committing domestic violence, Washington University School of Nursing suggests you answer these questions:

    • Have you ever threatened your partner?
    • Do you think your partner sometimes deserves to be hit?
    • Is your partner ever afraid of you?
    • Are you jealous of your partner?
    • Do you always know where your partner is, with whom, and doing what?
    • Have you ever said something your partner might consider a threat, even if you thought you were just joking?

    If you've answered "yes" to any of these questions, you may have an abuse problem. It's recommended that you contact a local psychologist, counsellor, or domestic abuse center and let them know you want help.
