My question involves criminal law for the state of: Texas

My boyfriend and I have been living together for 4 years. Over a year ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer which immediately threw me into a downward spiral of depression and anger. As a result, I became impossible, mean and vicious...fights became a weekly occurrance at our house. Over the holidays we had a fight that went too far. Long story a little shorter...I screamed, he yelled, I broke things, he told me to pack my things, I continued with my rage, tripped hitting my cheek on a box, neighbors called the police, the police came, I had a bruise so I said he hit me. He went to jail, had to bond out, and now there is a 60 day protective order stating he can't come within 1000 feet of HIS house as well as pending charges. He has never hit me and feel terrible for lying. What can I do to get him out of this and what will happen to me when I finally tell the truth?

Scared to death.
