Live in a discriminatory state; what do you do when you want to give up cause there is no way out?

My ex is using my status to keep threaten me and trying to blackmail me... He gets out of prison in March of 2019. My story has the recording of what he can do and how the police will not help. I am tired of being in Oklahoma, where even the assistant District Attorney's use your military and HIV status against you. I wish there was more help for me, I hate being such a minority.
