About a week ago (8 days ago to be precise) my husband and I were in a verbal argument. All three of my kids (who are 10, 8 and 5) were home. I was getting angry, so I decided to get up and leave the room before I did or said something I would regret later. My husband decided that he didn't want me to walk away, so he grabbed me around the waist just under my rib cage and started squeezing. I begged him to let go, and when he finally did (which he only did once I started gasping) he shoved me onto the couch. When I landed, I grabbed the phone and threatented to call the cops. He looked at our 10 yo son and said "Hope you are ready to see daddy in jail cause that is where mommy is going to put him." I didn't want to upset my son to much, so I just put the phone down, cooled my own temper down and went on with my life.
I have been in counseling for unrelated issues and I told my therapist about the incident. She ended up calling me yesterday to have me come in and make a saftey plan with her. She also called to report the incident. Now, we have DCS involved in our lives right now (again, for unrelated issue). I am now beginning to worry that saying something to the therapist will cause problems with the DCS case. My question is, do you think DCS will remove my kids because of this? I am terrified that I will get a knock on my door and they will tell me that I've lost my kids. Do you think this is possible?
