I’ve been married for over 4 years now. I had two daughters prior and now have one with my husband. The mental and emotional abuse has progressively gotten worse. So bad that my oldest, teenage daughter, asked to move across the country to live with her Dad for a while. I allowed her because I knew she was unhappy. This decision however, caused my depression to begin. My middle daughter has expressed her feelings of sadness for not only losing her sister but seeing mommy get treated so poorly.
My husband makes nasty comments about my daughters, sometimes at a volume that the neighbors could hear.
He had hidden a five year substance abuse problem from me until very recently. I only was made aware after he needed to go to emergency from hitting his head while putting up a light.
I stay home with our youngest preschool age daughter and have ZERO access to any money. He controls everything.
I feel trapped and need to take action somehow soon. His rage is starting to frighten me.
Any advice is appreciated!
