He bought her flowers, showered her with compliments and was loving and affectionate. That was in the beginning. “I was ready to give everything,” Kay said.    ‘‘The more you    give, they’re able to take more. They want everything — total control. “It came    to where    I’d    call    him before I left    for the    store    and    when    I got back,” she said. “The psychological abuse started before the physical abuse.” First he shoved her. Then he shoved her down and stomped on her. Then he threatened her with a shotgun. She went to stay at her daughters and he sent flowers and called to say he loved her. After she went back home, he broke her jaw, burst her eardrum, ripped her clothes, kicked up and down the sides of her body and held a gun to her head. “He wouldn’t allow me to sleep or go to the bathroom without permission. He took the keys to the car and told me not to tell anyone, especially the police. He unplugged the phone and took it to work with him.” One day Kay told her husband not to touch her children whom he had bruised by spanking. She also said she would start handling her own money. He said she would regret it. “He pulled out a shotgun, loaded it and threatened to kill her. She took off running barefoot in her nightgown down the driveway of their country home. He tried to run her down with his truck. He made her get in and took her back to the house. A psychologist that her husband had been seeing called and asked her how things were. Upon hearing how things were the psychologist told Kay to play along until she could find a way to get away — before her husband killed her. One day she hid the keys to the extra car so he wouldn’t take them and left after he went to work. She didn’t take any possessions with her for fear of getting caught on the way out — and facing the consequences. He was called in to work and she saw her chance. She drove to the nearby elementary school and called the sheriff’s department. “They were so very helpful,” Ray said. “They gave me the number of the Women’s Center.” The Comal County Women’s Center arranged for Kay to live in their shelter. “Everything we needed to survive was provided by the shelter including a lot of counseling and reassurance for the children,” Kay said. The Comal County Family Violence Shelter, doing business as the Comal County Women’s Center provides counseling and assistance via their 620-HELP crisis line. The line is staffed 24 hours a day by one of 22 volunteers, said Director Cindy Stauffer. There are seven trained advocates who will pick up the victim at a public place and help get them situated in the shelter, Stauffer said. “It’s a problem the community refuses to recognize,” she said. “People in this community need to be aware that this is going on — we can’t ignore it because people are being hurt.” Victims can stay at the shelter for 30 days although the average stay is about a week, Stauffer said. “People say ‘why doesn’t she just leave?”’ she said. “The man takes control and isolates the woman. He steps up verbal abuse and tears down self-esteem. When we get them we have to reprogram them.” The agency assists women in going to the county attorney and the police. They help fill out paperwork and get protective orders. There also is a support group that meets at the center’s office on Tuesdays at 9 a.m. The Comal County United Way is providing $10,000 in support for the center this year. “I think people need to see it can happen to anyone,” Kay said. “They’d be surprised at the number of wives of doctors, attorneys and politicians this happens to.” October is Domestic Violence Awareness month. On Monday October 7, at 8 p.m. there will be a candlelight vigil on the south steps of the Capitol building in Austin. For more information call 620-HELP or 620-7520. LIO S.
