Dear Aunty Lisa
MY boyfriend gave me a black eye when we were arguing the other day. He often hits me when he gets really angry.
I am 27 and he is 29. We’ve been together for three years.
We have a good relationship most of the time but we’ve had a few problems recently. They are not major but he has started hitting me when he gets angry.
It happens more and more nowadays. It makes me feel like rubbish when he does this. I have thought of leaving him but I love him so much.

He may well cause you a life-changing injury. Living in fear is dragging you down.
