I am in the process of dealing with a domestic violence

I am in the process of dealing with a domestic violence situation. My abuser is in jail and is facing charges. The DA has evidence of his abuse to include texts, emails, voice messages, and recorded conversations off my phone, as well as police officers as witnesses to the incident that resulted in his arrest. The DA has informed me that they are moving forward with prosecution. I got a restraining order in place. I got a letter from the DA stating they will be setting a trial date and will notify me of it by subpoena to appear. I imagine the subpoena is for me to appear to testify. If I understand right a subpoena is a court order to appear, and must be followed or I could face consequences? Some tell me that even if they send it i do not have to appear in court. Others say if I don't appear they will drop the case. Why would they do that with all the evidence they have? This case is the state vs. him, not me vs. him. I want to participate with the DA as much as they ask me to, however, I am concerned about showing up in court because I'm scared he will never forget that I did to testify against him, and as soon as he's released he will find me or someone I love and make me "pay" for showing up to testify. He has already (pre the arrest), told me he will do this. Can/will they still prosecute without my testimony in court? Isn't what I've given the DA enough. What are the potential outcomes here in either scenario? The state we're in is Oregon.
